Is there a Right to Rescind?

Answered by: 

Question: 
If a person is taking out a loan on the home in which he lives, but does not own, does right of recission apply? If so, to whom, the person who has ownership or the person who lives in the home?
Answer: 

If the person living in the home is taking out a loan to pay off a "rent to buy agreement" then the person (borrower) is entitled to the ROR. See the Reg Z Commentary to 226.2(a)(24)(5).

If the person is borrowing money for some other reason and the owner of the rental home is agreeing to pledge the home as security then there is no rescission. The non-owner borrower is not a consumer for the purposes of the ROR and the home is not the owner's primary dwelling.
