Of course read the PCS order one and had to wonder if they bought their house before the HAP PCS deadline and missed an big oppotunity to sell.

The tenant does have a financial interest in the property to some degree so it is at least questionable about the arm's length of the transaction.

The only time I know of that the tenant wanted to purchase a home he had been renting for 3 years, he was denied by the bank because the bank said that it wasn't an arms-length transaction.  The seller had to move with his job and that was the only reason for selling, but the bank still wouldn't approve the deal.
