Rent to Buy – What You Need to Know

With soaring property values in Sydney and Melbourne, an arrangement known as ‘rent to buy’ has recently been given more and more attention.

‘Rent to buy’ is an agreement between a tenant and landlord, where the landlord agrees to sell the property to the tenant at X price in Y years’ time. In return, the tenant agrees to pay extra rent each week, which is then taken off the total purchase price when it comes time to buy.

Whilst this can seem like a great option, this arrangement can be perilous to both the buyer and the seller as is usually the case where there are ‘bells and whistles’ wrapped around a property strategy. Beware of complexity or investing in anything that is not simple to understand!

Our partner in property education, Peter ‘the Property Professor’ Koulizos, illustrates the benefits and pitfalls.
