Home loan rejected? That's where Rent2Buy comes in
Rent-to-buy is a concept which allows homeowners to pay off their properties without getting a home loan.
A local business, called Rent2Buy, is popularising the trend in South Africa.
Meyer de Waal, the founder of Rent2Buy, explains how the business model works.
De Waal, a conveyancing attorney, says they assist candidates who have been declined home loans by the banks.
He explains that affordable Rent2buy units now available areas ranging from Bloemfontein in the Free State to Parklands and Blue Downs in the Cape.
