A Colorado rent-to-own agreement is a legally binding arrangement whereby a property owner agrees to let a tenant rent residential property for a predetermined term with the option to buy the property before the contract runs out. The document is effectively a combination of a lease agreement and a purchase agreement. The tenant is not required to buy the residence under this contract; however, their failure to do so will result in a loss of any financial investment towards the purchase.
