I have an investor client that does rent to own and because she deal directly with the buyer I am not sure about all of the details.

You need to be careful in doing these. It's best to get the parties together and have an attorney draw up the paperwork.

In most places, the lease to own arrangements are not really "programs". They are simply governed by the written agreement between the owner and the maybe future owner.

It is best to look for private investors for rent to owns in your area.

Programs? You mean gov programs?

Isn't that kind of odd there is a program for a "lease to own"?

Maybe I'm not understanding, but in my area those interested in lease to owns don't have the credit to buy a dog house!

Can't really help here... as in my market there's no real value to lease to own.

Never heard of a Program for this, most that I know of are just risky agreements.

I used to be familiar with these "programs" and did a few.  Been out of if too long to know what is out there now.  These "programs" are very different than a lease-to-own agreement between a seller and buyer.  I did those too.

I think that is probably just a type of contractual arrangement between 2 parties. I'd check the Leaderboard (bottom of the page in right under Important Links) for some of the agents in Texas who can perhaps help

In Denver, we do not see lease or rent to own, they never close.  Pick one or the other.
