A "Contract for Deed," sometimes referred to as a Land Contract is a legal agreement in which the buyer of a property agrees to pay the seller the purchase price over a period of time. During this period, the buyer has possession of the property, but the seller retains legal title to the property until the full purchase price is paid.

Recording the Contract: In Kansas, it's usually a good idea to record the contract for deed or an Affidavit of Equitable Interest with the county register of deeds. This ensures public notice of the buyer's interest in the property and protects against subsequent claims.

Foreclosure Process: If the buyer defaults on a contract for deed, the seller may need to go through a judicial foreclosure process to regain possession of the property. Kansas law will specify the procedure, notice requirements, and redemption rights.

Equitable Title: Under a contract for deed, the buyer often holds equitable title to the property, meaning they have a right to obtain full legal title once the contract terms are fulfilled. However, until then, the legal title remains with the seller.

Rights and Obligations: The contract should clearly outline the rights and responsibilities of both the buyer and the seller, including payment schedules, property maintenance, tax obligations, and insurance.

Default and Acceleration Clauses: Contracts for deed commonly contain clauses that detail what constitutes a default and what happens in such a scenario, including the possibility of an acceleration clause which demands full payment upon default.

Annual Accounting Statement
Principal and Interest Breakdown: The statement should clearly show how much of the buyer's payments have been applied toward the principal balance of the property and how much has gone toward interest.

Remaining Balance: It should indicate the remaining balance of the principal after the year's payments have been applied.

Payment History: The statement might include a summary of the payments made during the year, including dates and amounts.

Taxes and Insurance: If the seller is responsible for paying property taxes and insurance from the buyer's payments (common in escrow arrangements), the statement should detail these payments.

Late Fees or Penalties: If any late fees or penalties were incurred during the year, these should also be documented.

Escrow Account Balance: If there is an escrow account associated with the contract, the statement should include the current balance of this account.

Legal Compliance: Ensure that the Annual Accounting Statement complies with any relevant Kansas laws and the specific terms of your Contract for Deed.

I just completed my first deed filing and I’m very happy with the experience. The deeds staff was extremely supportive and helpful in guiding me through the learning curve of being my first filing without legal assistance. They saved me a ton in legal fees.
