transferring pts means you have the pts transferred into your member account. only a DVC member can have pts transferred to them. once pts are transferred into your account, you own them and can use them to make a reservation that you control.
points cannot actually be "rented" - we talk that way but "renting" actually means that a DVC member makes a reservation and rents the reservation. that reservation can be rented by a DVC member or a non-member - but in either case, the renter does not own the reservation and cannot call MS to check on the reservation or make changes. the DVC owner who made the reservation controls the rental until the renter checks in.
at the 7 month window, you'd have access to up to 24 one-time-use pts from disney directly, but that won't do you much good.
so you'd need to have a BLT owner transfer you 320 or more BLT pts in order to book BLT at 11 months out. you can only have one transfer per UY (either in or out, but not both) so you'd need to find someone with a lot of BLT pts. that's the best way to pull it off...
if you are not a control freak, it would be possible for you to use your pts to book several nights at BLT and then rent a stay from another BLT owner for several nights that completes your full visit...but you wouldn't control that part of the reservation and you'd need to have MS link the 2 separate reservations (and have to check-out and back in and hope you could stay in the same villa.) not an ideal situation, though.
