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.)

In 14 boldface type a "Right to Cancel Statement" must be placed above the purchaser's signature, to the effect of;

IF THE SELLER FAILS TO MAKE TIMELY PAYMENTS TO THE LIEN HOLDER, THE LIEN HOLDER MAY FORECLOSE ON THE PROPERTY, EVEN IF YOU HAVE MADE ALL YOUR PAYMENTS.)

Fairly easy to use. I had to really search to get some info. I had to use the Exhibit feature because the description box was way too small and I ended up re-typing it. The package had good and useful links. The County Clerk looked at it and said, "I see you used an online form, and that's OK, but..." and proceeded to show me a couple of things that were left out. They recorded it with no problems.
