Is it legal to allow "annual" payments to negotiate a price for buying property?

Me and a few friends talking, and I will tell someone "I'll buy x property from you for x amount, plus ill give you a hundred dollars every time I pass go"

My friends disagree with this and believe it to be against the rules.

I checked the rules and it doesnt say you cannot do it.

What say you?

(Dont know how the conversation got to monopoly).

I think there is a card that shows what all the prices are.

He's making up his own fair way of playing the game. They don't want to agree with you because your idea made their brains hurt.

I say any deal is legal so long as it is not prohibited by the rules.

What happens if you can't pay the 100 when you pass Go? Do you foreclose?

Does your rule include rentals?

Every time I played the game I had the approach that any rule is fine as long as it's not gamebreaking, and everyone agrees on it. Be it loans from the banker, or paying in rates.

I hear doing anything not allowed in the rules makes the Monopoly Guy angry.

Well i never saw anything wrong with adding rules as long as everyone agrees with them. It makes the game more interesting and stretches it out a bit so it does not come down to 2-3 players just exchanging the same rent money as they go around the board.

Well you get 200 every time you pass go but in the event you cant pay the property goes to the original owner or the bank.
