There are huge amounts of money involved in owning a home whether you choose to construct your own or decide to buy a ready built one. Due to large sums of money involved in owning a home, there are a number of available financing options that aim at helping someone to own a property and they can pay in calculated amounts for a specified period of time until the loan is completely paid. At times you might not qualify for a mortgage due to different reasons maybe because your credit history needs to be cleaned up or something else and when you are in such a case, you need another process by whicheck you can get the home. There is another method of purchasing a home whereby you rent a the home for a specified period of time after which you can purchase the home and it’s referred to as rent to own home. Just like in any other contract that you sign, it’s important to have every point in it clarified so that you can be sure of what you are getting yourself into especially the point where your lease period ends, the contract could state that you are obligated to purchase the property while another might state that you can purchase the home or opt out without consequences.
At the start you might feel like you will be able to afford the property or get the funding and for different reasons you might not be able to do so and in such a case you will need to opt out but if your contract stated that you are obliged to purchase the home, there will be legal consequences if you don’t do so. If however the contract stated that you have the right to purchase the property then you are not obliged to purchase the property and you won’t face any charges for failure to buy the home after the contract period expires since your contract had the option of opting out. When you decide to take on the rent to own home deal you will pay a certain percentage of the house sale as the option fee and some premium rent and you can then get to occupy the house immediately as stipulated by the contract until the agreed period of time for lease is over whereby you can purchase the home either before the contract ends or after This kind of contract is very helpful especially when you don’t have the funding immediately as you are able to work on getting the funding as you occupy the house.
