    I am in Cape Town right now and am trying a possibility of establishing a backpakers accommodation for a little business. I look forward to your advise.

    There is a rent to buy option in property transactions.
    Origanaly it worked with the seller and buyer agreeing on a price and the buyer agreeing to pay Xamount a month, usually a higher figure than ordinary rent escalating every year.
    After an agreed period, say five years the owner would transfer the property into the buyers name with the condition that a bond be in place for the balance of the purchase price, so that upon transfer the seller recieved the balance and the buyer continued paying off a bond instead of rent.

    The advantage, you secure the price of the property and don't need to raise a bond.

    The big disadvantage is that if in say year four you have a financial wobble and fail to make the rental payment, the contract is automatically voided and you loose everything that you paid already.

    I was mystified as to exactly what you were looking to "rent to buy". But Wynn's post seems to have solved that, thanks.
