Pretty much just this. Is rent-to-own (購入選択権付賃貸) possible/common for old properties?

Isn’t that one of the ways of getting a property via an akiya bank?

In our town it's possible and often times suggested for people new to the country living. One problem that seems to arise is the lack of proper contracts or rental agreements, as usually the town office isn't allowed to get involved with that.
