This answer was rated:


Parties A (Seller) and B (Buyer) have agreed to sell/buy 10 acres of land for $1000 an acre. Both parties agree that Buyer shall pay for the land in 10 monthly installments of $1000/month. What language in the purchase and sale might there be to prevent the seller from encumbering the property and to ensure that B gets the land upon the last payment? Should there be something recorded in land court to protect B? What might B want to record in land court to protect his interest in the land?

Good afternoon. The contract for deed needs to provide that: i) the owner shall transfer title by warranty deed at such time as the buyer has fulfilled his obligations under the contract; ii) that, without buyer's prior written consent, owner shall not cause or allowed to be caused any lien on the property during the period from the time the contract is signed until the deed is transferred to buyer pursuant to the contract; iii) that owner will sign the warranty deed now and deposit it in escrow with an independent title company to be delivered to buyer upon buyer's performance under the contract; and iv) that the contract for deed will be recorded in the real property records of the city/county in which the property is located to establish the buyer's priority.
