A lease to own house purchase also rent to own purchase or lease purchase is a lease combined with an option to purchase the property is that true?

A lease purchase is a method of buying a home by way of a rental or lease agreement that includes a clause (option) allowing the renter/lessee to purchase the home within a specific time frame. Sometimes called an option or a rent to own purchase, this home-buying method is similar in concept to renting to own a property, only the financing of the property is generally transferred from the seller to a lender once the renter/lessee exercises the option to purchase the property. Lease purchases are popular amongst homebuyers with poor credit, who cannot get financing, and are often used as a means to secure a home at a set price while repairing credit issues in preparation for bank financing. These instructions will guide you through the process of a lease purchase.

Yes, maybe and no. Truly depends on how the lease is written. The leasors could be a pain and fight you and in the meantime while you are filling your notice to evict and being granted (depending on the state could be days or months) they could be trashing your property. Most of the times given a 60-90 day notice and receiving any secruity deposits back they will move on. Remember the old owner could have 0 to a couple months rent in secruity. The old owner could also be held liable for you evicting them. It depends on the lease. Hope this helps
