A memorandum of the contract shall be titled "MEMORANDUM OF AN INSTALLMENT SALES CONTRACT") ((765 ILCS 67/20(a))

In short an ("Installment sales contract" or "contract" means any contract or agreement, including a contract for deed, bond for deed, or any other sale or legal device whereby a seller agrees to sell and the buyer agrees to buy a residential real estate, in which the consideration for the sale is payable in installments for a period of at least one year after the date of sale, and the seller continues to have an interest or security for the purchase price or otherwise in the property. "Installment sales contract" does not include a financing arrangement that for religious or cultural reasons does not allow the imposition or collection of interest and that is offered by a person, partnership, association, limited liability company, or corporation doing business under and as permitted by any law of this State or the United States relating to banks, savings and loan associations, savings banks, credit unions, or third-party religious or cultural lenders.) ((765 ILCS 67/5)

Why record a Memorandum instead of a Contract?
Memorandum of Contract: This is useful when you want to protect certain details of the agreement while still providing public notice of its existence. It is appropriate for maintaining some level of privacy and avoiding the recording of lengthy or sensitive contract details.

Original Contract: Recording the original contract is beneficial when you need full legal protection and clarity. It ensures that all terms are public and enforceable, providing comprehensive protection against disputes and claims.

Good template that met my needs. Much better than another draft template that I found on another site. Would have been helpful if the template had been provided in a Word format instead of PDF so that I could remove the sections that are not applicable.

Documents are ok but I needed to reword some of the verbiage and it cannot be edited without paying a monthly or annual membership.
otherwise it is a very nice site.

I was very impressed with the speed at which information was retrieved on my very first search. Unfortunately, the county we were looking for is behind times and has not digitized its information. I will be using Deeds.Com again and appreciate that I was not charged for no information being returned back. Thank You

My E-deed was not excepted by the county, so I had to snail mail the documents to the recorders office. Will probably not use this site again, as it did not fulfill my purpose, but would recommend to those who do not have complicated forms.
