A Nevada rent-to-own agreement is a residential lease contract combined with a purchase and sale contract that binds together a landlord/seller and a tenant/buyer. This agreement is used when the parties wish to enter into a rental arrangement that gives the tenant the option to buy the property outright after the lease expires. The principal terms in a rent-to-own agreement are the rent amount, consideration, option fee, purchase price, and the length of the lease. The tenant must pay rent to the landlord on a monthly basis; however, a rent credit may be applied to the monthly rent, making the total cost higher but allocating a portion of it towards the purchase price.
