Is there a safe way to default on a land contract?

Is there a safe way for me to default on a land contract? I live in Wi. The seller would not return any paperwork for me to pay off gallon payment. The bank contacted the owner by phone many times and sent paperwork for her to return. I suspect she has reported income from property and didn't want to deal with the balloon. I am 3 years from having to obtain financing. I just want to default properly and buy a different house through the bank.

I see you have some understanding of land contracts so I have a question for you. I have purchased a piece of land in upstate NY by land contract. Having satisfied my end of the contract the land owner has not been able to produce a deed to transfer because it was used to obtain a loan from their bank. I am wondering how to proceed with this and protect my investment? The land owner has given me in writing permission to continue using the land but want to make sure I have a protected investment and will walk away holding the deed. I have plenty of paper work to prove I have satified my end of this contract.

I was wondering if there was a way to temporarily stop and eviction. I have been working with the land contract holder to re-finance and have numerous email correspondences where they were OK with it and just got served and eviction notice.JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: noJA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: I had a land contract that is overdue. We went to court in 1-16 and was granted time till 4-22-16 to remedy it. Due to a bankruptcy filing I was unable to get a standard mortgage so I had to go to a "second tier" lender. I am in the process of closing that mortgage and got served an eviction. The land contract holder was and has been kept abreast of the process and was OK with it. I even allowed them to converse with my lender so they knew what was going on. Never was there any sign of this. Then POW!JA: What state are you in? And has anything been officially filed?Customer: Michigan. Yes. I have a copy of an Application of Eviction signed by a judge

I'm in the middle of a conflict with my sister after buying her property with a land contract. She will not remove her possessions stored in the sheds which she has locked. She is threatening to take me to small claims court for $1000 which she says includes $600 for an agreement she had with the local electric company, 2 months of a cable bill as well as damage to some of her things that she says I damaged. Mr. P. Simmons advised me to send her a certified check stating she must move her things from my property within a specified amount of time. I guess I need advice on the things she is threatening to take me to court with.
