FHA World Florida - FHA Lease with Option to Buy in Florida

A lease option to buy is a contract in which a property is rented for a period of time and the renter has the option to buy the property. The contract should be in writing and state how much the rent is, the time limit for the purchase, the purchase price, if there are any rent credit and any seller paid closing cost.

If a portion of your monthly rental payments are set aside towards the down payment of the property make sure you pay the rent by check and make sure you save the canceled rent checks. To receive credit for your down payment the mortgage company will need proof you paid your rent.
