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.

We have been waiting for a Title Company to put a release of Lien together for the past 3 months. I figured it was taking way to long and decided to use template here instead. In less than hour I was able to add all the information on the template and provide forms to our Seller to use. We were buying and he didnt think they were necessary. But I refused to pay him in full until he agreed to sign papers at the bank, and of course in front of a notary. We turned around and filed the Release of lien paperwork at County Clerks office, we officially own our house. Thank you!

Thank you for offering this service. We were getting several different answers on how to solve our problem, and all of them involved getting an attorney. You saved us a ton of money and using your document made everything super easy...no attorney needed! Thank you!
