What does rent to own consist of?

Rent to buy is an agreement between the owner of a property and the tenant, whereby the tenant has the right to buy the property at the end of the rental period, which is usually between 2 and 5 years. The sale price is fixed at the beginning of the contract and an amount proportional to the rents paid during the rental period is deducted from the sale price. In addition, the tenant usually pays an initial premium to the landlord to reserve his right to buy, which is also deducted from the final price if the option to buy is exercised, or forfeited if it is not.
