You still need to go through the steps Scott described. As he told you, the guy may not even know she has ask you to do this. After runing her credit, employment etc, if you find she can’t afford to purchase you have several options. If she doesn’t have a down payment, and wants to continue renting, you have a renter (with all the headaches that come along with it) or you can give her a notice and let you know you’re not interested in renting and want to find a buyer. You could possible offer her a lease/option giving her more time to come up with a down payment.
