This "Contract for Deed" often called a "Land Contract" is a document (in which the seller agrees to sell an interest in property to the purchaser and the purchaser agrees to pay the purchase price in five or more payments exclusive of the down payment, if any, and the seller retains title to the property as security for the purchaser's obligation under the agreement.) (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.)

My sale is a land contract and it is complicated. We were thinking we'd have to get an attorney. Your site is very thorough and helpful. We will still have an attorney look over our final papers --and we are still waiting on my deed from the bank to finalize our input. Had several questions, but they seemed to be answered as I went along. The actual process of downloading and saving and having a link went very smoothly. Thank you.

Your documents were very helpful. I went ahead and filled in all the info for the Release of Lien document. It was easy to do with your example. I had all the necessary info such as plot numbers, etc. for the property and everything fit nicely onto the document. It has been notorized and mailed. My grandparents' Victorian home has new owners who love it and has paid it off. Yeah!!!

The purchasing process was very slick and my credit card was charged IMMEDIATELY. The deliver went well as the link was provided immediately.

However I asked a question via the "Contact Us" link and days later I get a survey but no reply.

I may have been directed to the wrong forms via my County and I wanted to confirm that...but still no answer.

What would that deserve as a rating???
