What is rent to own?

Rent to own, very publically known and exercised in the US, is still in its introductory stage in Canada. How it works is: A portion of your rent goes towards the down payment for your house & lease term plans usually range from 3-5 year period. This concept is very similar to leasing a car as the higher the downpayment, the faster you can be a homeowner! An option fee is charged or a down payment as low as 5% can be put towards the house, which will help you get the home even with no credit history or poor credit. It also gives you time to recover your credit score during the lease term by making monthly payments for rent. Depending on your comfort level, you can decide the percentage of funds that will go towards your downpayment from your rent, as well.
