When is this document used?
When a property is sold, and a Contract for the Sale and Purchase of Real Property (often called a Land Contract or Buy-Sell Agreement), has been executed by both parties this Memorandum document is often recorded in the county where the subject property is located instead of the actual Contract. Stating - Seller has agreed to sell, and Buyer has agreed to buy, the Property upon the terms and conditions set forth in the Contract.

Why a Memorandum of Contract?
Privacy - When parties want to keep financial details of a Contract for the Sale and Purchase of Real Property private, a Memorandum is recorded.

Notice - puts the world on notice that a Contract between buyer and seller exists on a specific property.

Legal - legal binding agreement between buyer and seller concerning the property in question.

Protection - Often filed by buyers alone, after a contract has been executed, preventing loans or encumbrances being placed on the property by existing Deed holder. Encumbrances have been placed on properties even though the Contract states they can't. This can be devastating for a buyer who has made payments. A Memorandum is an effective instrument to prevent this. In short, either the Contract or Memorandum of Contract should be recorded for your protection.

Seller Financing - When the buyer chooses or is obligated to obtain bank financing a Memorandum legitimizes the purchase agreement, providing proof to the bank that a deal was in place. Most banks will require that the Contract or Memorandum be recorded before they will finance the property in question.

The service provided by the staff at Deeds.com is consistently excellent with prompt replies and smooth recording transactions. I am grateful to have their service available as driving to downtown Phoenix to record documents is always a daunting prospect. Their assistance in recording our firm's documents has been 100% accurate and a pleasure.

I am really impressed by this website. Not only is it affordable, but they give a detailed description, instructions, and an example to follow. Also there are additional forms included. And it's State, even county, specific. They do not require a subscription either as you can just order what you want. Thank you!

I was on several sites but this was the easiest and cost effective. No bait and switch like on several sites where you get a "free trial" and then they started billing you monthly for legal services. Excellent.
