HOW THE PROGRAM WORKS
This program provides responsible households with a clear and transparent path to home ownership through its Lease with a Right to Purchase Program. This program provides Three years of rent certainty with only a one-year financial commitment on the lease.
If you want to own a home but cannot currently qualify for a mortgage, or if you would prefer to rent a home now with the goal of purchasing it in the next three years then this program may be for you. This program doesn't focus exclusively on your credit score. The full credit profile of your entire household is taken into account when they review your application to the program.
As with a stand lease agreement, the program requires you to sign a lease for a year and make a security deposit. Unlike a standard lease agreement, you will have renewal options providing three years of rent certainty and the right to purchase the home at a price established when you enter the Right to Purchase Agreement, in accordance with the terms of the Agreement you can also select the home that you want to live in from all homes included from time to time in the program as shown on their website.
The program buys homes in specific approved communities, so you can go to their website and see what communities are currently in their program. We will guide you in finding the right home in the right community in the program. Once you are approved the purchase price in your Right to Purchase Agreement that is the price at which you may purchase the home during the term of the lease, in accordance with the terms of the Agreement whether the home is later appraised a a higher or lower value. If you do not purchase the home as provided in the Agreement, the program may rent or sell the home to others when you lease ends.
Your initial lease is for one year, so your financial commitment is limited to one year. You lease is renewable every year for three one-year periods, and you have the right to notify us if you don't want to renew the lease. Your full security deposit will be returned as provided in the lease if you decide to leave the home at the end of a lease period and have been in full compliance with the lease.
RIGHT TO PURCHASE AGREEMENT
Your Right to Purchase Agreement gives you the right to purchase the home you select from the program at a predetermined price for every year of your lease, as long as you have been in compliance with the lease, Agreement, and other documents. You are under no obligation to buy the home from the program.
