If you're in a Chapter 7, you can enter into any type of contract as long as it doesn't affect the assets you had on the date you filed. In Chapter 13, you need court approval to incur debt, since a rent to own contract is debt, it needs approval.

It will be a decision the party that finances these agreements will have to make. Not an issue if you filed Chapter 7. However, you might need court permission to enter into this agreement if you are in Chapter 13.
