A Nevada rent-to-own agreement is a hybrid legal document that combines a traditional lease agreement and a purchase option. It lets a tenant rent and live at a property while giving them the chance to purchase it from the property owner at a later date. Both parties negotiate all the terms according to state law.
The agreement contains specific elements like the rent amount, consideration, an option fee, the purchase price, and the lease’s duration. While the tenant must make monthly rent payments, they can apply a rent credit towards the purchase price.
Landlord-Tenant Laws: Chapter 118A (Landlord and Tenant: Dwellings)
