(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.)

I just completed my first deed filing and I’m very happy with the experience. The deeds staff was extremely supportive and helpful in guiding me through the learning curve of being my first filing without legal assistance. They saved me a ton in legal fees.

It just a little disconcerting that I was not able to preview any of the forms prior to purchasing them. Thank goodness they were the correct forms I needed. I would suggest being able to at least make the picture of the forms a little larger or give the capability to zoom in.
