You usually sign an agreement when you rent the house that it is a "rent to own option" At the end of a certain period if you choose to buy, a percentage of the money that you have paid in rent will go to toward the purchase price. If you choose not to buy, it will be just like an ordinary rental agreement with the owner being that mcuh richer as far as the money you have paid in rent. Hope this helps.
