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.

(Kentucky Contract for Deed Package includes form, guidelines, and completed example) For use in Kentucky Only.

It was outstanding, seriously, I had 3 e mail correspondences asking for information and providing feedback within 2 hours and was ready for submission at that point.
I paid the invoice online and by the end of the day I had electronic verification that Registry of Deeds had processed my documents.

That work is good stuff !

mostly good; however, you need to update the annual exclusion gift amount from $14,000 to $15,000 (where it has ben for several years), and you need to make your Gift Deed final paragraph be gender neutral like "they" or "he or she" rather than just"he". We women lawyers and our women clients appreciate that.
