What is a Rent-to-Own Plan
A lease-to-own, also known as a rent-to-own agreement, is a payment plan that works for rental properties, such as condominiums and houses. A lease-to-own essentially sets up an extended purchase and sale agreement. This means that the landowner agrees to sell the property and the tenant agrees to purchase the property at a date specified in the lease.
A rent-to-own plan is typically an agreement for the rental of an item. You will not own the item until you have met the conditions in your rent-to-own agreement. In addition to your monthly payment, you may have to pay fees. These can include an additional amount to pay if you want to purchase the item. If you change your mind, or if you don’t want to purchase the item, you can return it to the company.
