The Lease with Right to Purchase Program ("Program") is offered and administered by Home Partners. Prospective resident and property must meet eligibility requirements, which are subject to change. Please see information about terms and conditions of Program at HomePartners.com. Resident must qualify for a mortgage from a third party lender to exercise the right to purchase a home. Home Partners does not provide financing for resident to purchase a home. Home Partners' approval for resident to lease home does not mean that resident will later qualify for a mortgage. Home Partners is not affiliated with any real estate professional (e.g., a real estate broker or sales agent). Real estate professionals and Home Partners are not authorized to act on behalf of the other, and neither is responsible for the conduct of the other, with respect to residents in the Program.
