I have come across rent-to-own properties during my search to rent an apartment or single family residence. However, I have never heard of this before and would like to know the legitimacy of this type of contract? Is it legal for a landlord to rent and sell a property this way? And as the renter/buyer, what would be the benefits and/or drawbacks of getting into this type of contract? I'd like to have some basic information about this sort of transaction and know pretty much will I officially own the property in full with deed and title once all conditions are met? Thank you for taking the time to reply.
