We hired NPM to manage our rental home in Overland Park after having some bad experience with previous property management agency. NPM used email communication effectively to manage expectations and provided guidance to address tenant concerns. They fielded most of the tenant concerns on their own and involved the owners only if needed. Overall, we had a very good experience with NPM property management. Staff is friendly, knowledgeable and professional. I recommend this firm without any reservation to home owners considering renting their homes. Thank you NPM for taking care of our property last year and handing back to us safely upon our return home.

The Basics Behind Rental Property Investing

Lease Option

  • Buyer pays the seller option money for the right to later purchase the property. The option money may be substantial.
  • Buyer and seller may agree to a purchase price now or the buyer may agree to pay market value at the time the option is exercised. It is negotiable. However, most buyers want to lock in the future purchase price upon inception of the rental lease option.
  • A lease-option is a lease accompanied by an option giving the tenant-buyer the right (but not the obligation) to buy. So, at the end of the lease, the tenant-buyer could simply walk away with no further obligation. A lawyer would call this a “unilateral agreement”–it requires an action by one party (requiring the owner to sell) but doesn’t require the tenant-buyer to buy.

  • During the term of the rental lease option, the buyer agrees to lease the property from the seller for a predetermined rental amount.

  • The term of the rental lease option agreement is negotiable, but the common length is generally from one year to three years.
  • The rental lease option money generally does not apply toward the down payment.
  • A portion of the monthly rental payment typically applies toward the purchase price.
  • Option money is rarely refundable.
  • Nobody else can buy the property during the rental lease option period.
  • The buyer generally cannot assign the rental lease option without seller approval.
  • If the buyer does not exercise the rental lease option and purchase the property at the end of the rental lease option, the option expires.
  • The buyer is not obligated to buy the property

Lease Purchase

  • Rent to own buyer pays the seller option money for the right to later purchase the property. This option money may be substantial.
  • Buyer and seller agree on a purchase price, often at or a bit higher than market value.
  • A lease-purchase is a lease accompanied by a purchase agreement committing both the tenant-buyer and the property owner to conclude the transaction. At the conclusion of the lease, the tenant-buyer would be obligated to buy and the owner would be obligated to sell. A lawyer would call this a “bilateral agreement”–it requires action by both parties–the owner to sell and the tenant-buyer to buy.

  • During the term of the option, the buyer agrees to lease the property from the seller for a predetermined rental amount.

  • The option money generally does not apply toward the down payment.
  • A portion of the monthly rental lease payment typically applies toward the purchase price.
  • Option money is nonrefundable.
  • Nobody else can buy the property unless the buyer defaults.
  • The buyer typically cannot assign the rental lease purchase agreement without seller approval.

Doing a Rent to Own Lease Option / Rent to Own Lease Purchase

Hire a real estate lawyer to draw the documents and explain your rights, including those of possession and default consequences. The property might be encumbered by underlying loans that contain alienation clauses, giving the lender the right to accelerate the loans upon sale.

Agents are not always involved in the exercise of rent to own lease options or fulfillment of rent to own lease purchase agreements and, even if you have retained real estate agent representation, you still need a real estate lawyer. Agents are not lawyers and cannot give legal advice.

In the event of a rental lease purchase, obtain all the disclosures and do your due diligence just like you would on a regular sale. This means:

  • Get a home inspection

  • Examine the title policy
  • Obtain an appraisal
  • Read seller disclosures
  • Consider obtaining pest inspections, a roof certification, home warranty plan and hiring other qualified inspectors

Rent to Own Lease Purchase Benefits for Sellers and Buyers

Rental lease purchase agreements are commonly offered by sellers that own difficult-to-sell properties. Think about it, if the property was easy to sell, the seller would sell it to a conventional buyer who would pay the seller cash. However, there are rental lease purchase benefits for both buyers and sellers:

  • Sellers generally get market value at today’s prices and relief from paying a mortgage on a vacant property.
  • Although the lease payments may exceed market rent, the buyer is building a down payment and banking that the property will appreciate beyond the agreed upon purchase price.

  • Buyers generally make a small down payment, with little or no qualifying, making a rental lease purchase an attractive way to ease into the benefits of home ownership.
  • Buyers also receive a forced savings plan since part of the lease payment is credited toward the purchase price at the end of the lease option agreement.
  • If the buyer defaults, sellers do not refund any portion of the lease payments nor the option money and may retain the right to sue for specific performance.

What People Are Saying About Us

I used their property management services for 6 years... needless to say I was satisfied. They were able to fill vacancies quickly for me and I believe the total combined vacancy during that 6 years was 1 or 2 months. There were always fast to respond to my inquiries. Fast to connect me with services when those services were needed. Took risk to me, the client, as a top consideration when looking to fill those vacancies. As a result, 6 years later I have now ceased use of their services with a big THANK YOU and after repairing a few normal wear and tear items such as painting the outside of the house, have sold this property for a substantial profit. This was our starter home we lived in for less than 2 years. In a normal situation, moving after occupying a home would result in substantial debt and cost. With their help we actually began immediate profit which was sustained and amplified at the final sale of our home 6 years later. The great part was, when this was being managed, I had no worries day-to-day as I did with a 2nd property I rented out without the security and support. The fee for the service was also lower than I have seen with other companies. Usually that comes at a service cost and frustration, but not in this case. 10/10 service.

After purchasing a home to be a rental house we soon realized we were not Landlords and turned our property over to Key Partners. Over the last 7 years Our house has never been vacant for more than 2 weeks. I really liked the way All transactions are handled by the office keeping it a business transaction between The tenant and owners. Leslie, Brette and Lynn always kept us in the loop and offered Advice when needed. I would recommend them to anyone with rental property, they were great to work with. Barb Erickson

Key Property Management did a great job of managing my rental property for five years. They always found great tenants who paid their rent on time. Key Partners also stayed on top of making repairs and finding qualified contractors when needed.

Key Partners communicates with the tenants and me quickly and professionally. They manage my property in a way that fosters my trust in them. I plan to list another property with them soon as they have managed my initial property wonderfully for years. I highly recommend Key Partners!
