Contract for Deed also known as a Land Contract
Included are Three forms:
(1) "Contract for Deed" evidenced by a Promissory Note and
(2) "Promissory Note" secured by a Contract for Deed.
(3) "Annual Accounting Statement"
This is considered a more secure method of owner financing than just a land contract because the promissory note is more elaborate and defining of late payments, defaults and penalties. Typically, a Contract for Deed is a recorded instrument, as where the promissory note is held onto by the Seller/Lender until the note is paid in full. These forms are governed by Kentucky law. A promissory note with strong default terms can be beneficial to the seller/lender.

The Contract for Deed form states that the consideration reflected is the fair market value for the property. The parties join this Contract for Deed for the sole purpose of certifying the consideration pursuant to Kentucky Revised Statutes Chapter 382. These forms offer the choice of typical installment payments or a balloon payment, which is common in land contracts, $XXX down, payments for 3-5 years with balance due of YYY.

So far so good. I will be taking the report to the Marion County Clerks office this week to see if it meets their requirements. If so, I will definitely be able to recommend Deeds.com to others.

Not too hard to do, I did get it checked out by an attorney after I completed it just to be safe. He said it was fine, made no changes.

You charge too much for a form. Your business model is shortsighted. I would not try to use your service again. You got $20 from me this once, but I would try very hard to not use your service again. Your model does not encourage serial or professional usage.

Thank you for your feedback John. We do wish that you had decided our product was too expensive prior to purchasing and using so that there was no remorse. Have a wonderful day.
