Land Contracts

Avoiding Risk With a Land Contract

What is  a Land Contract?

Land Contracts are special and specific contracts and agreements between a Buyer and a Seller, where the Buyer agrees to make payments for the land directly to the Seller, and the Seller in the transaction essentially operates as a bank.

We can guide you through the risks

There are some very important terms and conditions that need to be included in and made a part of a Land Contract in order to make sure it is properly structured, fair, and balanced for both sides. The Buyer and Seller each need to have a competent attorney guide them through the transaction. The risk to both the Buyer and Seller is quite a bit higher than a normal real estate transaction. The Buyer promises to pay funds to the Seller, and the expedited ability of the Seller to foreclose on the property are both possible risks.
