A New York rent-to-own agreement is a contract that establishes a tenancy and gives the tenant the opportunity to buy the property from the landlord at a later date. This arrangement helps landlords who want to earn rental income and obtain a potential buyer. It also benefits tenants who wish to test out a property before buying it and save money for the downpayment.
After negotiating with the tenant, the landlord highlights the agreed-upon purchase price in the document. They also explain the period during which a tenant can accept/decline the option and the consideration a tenant must pay to secure their buying rights.
