My current landlord has had the home that I am currently in, on the market prior to me renting it and has been unable to sell it. He asked me if I wanted to purchase the home and I told him I was not in a financial situation that would allow me to do so with complications of my husbands health. He later asked if I would be interested in a Lease with Option to Buy contract. He has stated that we either have to do this or I will have to move at the end of the lease in a few short months because the house is in my landlords divorce case and he has to "sell" the home. I cannot afford an attorney so my question is, would I also be protected in this lease? And is it smart to sign pro se (without a real estate attorney). My research on the net has provided me with some info but not enough.
