How Rent to Own Works

 

Rent to own programs (also known as lease to own, rent to buy or lease to buy) are typically operated by professional entrepreneurs who seek to solve people’s problems for profit. They are not usually charities or not-for-profit societies, but they do include a philanthropic motive.

CAROP urges potential clients to avoid programs where such a motive is not evident.
