(NC Statute 47H-1(1))

Use this package for Residential Property, Rental Property (up to 4 units), Condominiums, Planned Unit Development Property and Vacant Land. Financing is variable, choose between traditional installment payments or x number of payments followed by a balloon payment. This is common when the seller wants to be cashed out. Interest Rates, late payments and charges are set by seller.

If the purchaser goes into default. They must have the right to cure the default. This "Contract for Deed" form has that clause of "Right to Cure" (See NC Statute 47H-3. Conditions of forfeiture; right to cure.)

The site is easy to navigate and exceptional services. Unfortunately, they could find no information on a tract of land that I own, and they canceled the search and refunded my payment.
