In a traditional home purchase, an offer is accepted, the buyer and seller meet to exchange funds and settle final costs, and, at the close of the transaction, the property and its title changes hands.

Typically, buyers use a mortgage to finance the bulk of the purchase.

But sometimes there is an alternative way to buy a home: a rent-to-own agreement, also called lease option or lease-to-own.

When buyers sign this kind of contract, they agree to rent the home for a set amount of time before exercising an option to purchase the property when or before the lease expires.

It’s not a common way to purchase a property, and the selection of rent-to-own properties is tiny compared to the selection of properties available purely for lease or sale.

With "sophisticated investors" the law means institutional and professional investors, and anyone who confirmed in writing that he or she is a qualified investor or a minimum of € 125,000 invested, or a certificate from a bank, investment company may refer to explain that he whether it has the necessary knowledge and experience to evaluate an investment in the SIF.

Specialized funds have less stringent disclosure requirements than funds intended for the general public and take advantage of more flexible regulation of their activities.

However, they are required to establish an effective system to monitor and thus to manage the risks and measure the portfolio. They must also be structured so as to minimize the risk of conflicts of interest between the fund and its investors to the extent possible. There are also several conditions for the delegation of tasks to third parties.

As funds intended for the general public, the SIF must apply the principle of risk diversification. SIF can be made with multiple compartments. They can contain an unlimited number of different share classes. Thus it is possible to meet in a fund with multiple compartments all the needs and preferences of the investors. The tax, audit and advisory market is made up of a few large, homogenous international organizations on the one hand and small-scale local players on the other.
