(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.)

Communication is hard. The reps need to be empowered and encouraged to call the customers when necessary. They encourage 300 dpi resolution and under 2 MB PDF file, which is not even possible with our scanner. They made a vague comment about a legal description looking abbreviated but did not explain. They refused to call me. They said the county said "Image is light please darken", but the image looked fine to me. Maybe not their fault, but they refused to help work with the county on that for me. I followed their suggestion though and re-scanned at 300 dpi, but they misunderstood me and did not re-submit it right away. Over 48 hours later, it's still not recorded yet. I hope it will be today.
