how can I write up something legal to rent to own contract

Customer Question
for someone. I want...
how can I write up something legal to rent to own contract for someone. I want to sell my home to some friends of ours and let them take full responsible for the land, but I want to protect my interest until it is paiid off. I have set an amount (low for them) for $30,000 and they will pay $250.00 a month for 10 years. Can this be done with just a notary?

It is always advisable to seek the assistance of an attorney to draft such a document. If you prefer not to do so, you are permitted to create such a document yourself. You may have it notarized as well. Rather than attempting to write your own lease purchase agreement, you may want to purchase one of the many available on line. These documents will allow you to fill in the essential terms such as price and payment period.

IT HELPED ME SOME, I AM STILL NOT SURE OF HOW TO DO THIS, WHETHER TO TYPE UP A DEED FOR THE PROPERTY, OR NOT MAKE A DEED UNTIL THE HOUSE IS PAID FOR. I KNOW THE BANKS GIVE YOU A DEED, BUT YOU STILL MAKE PAYMENTS UNTIL THE PLACE IS PAID FOR. I WENT ON ESTATE PURCHASE AND DOWN LOADED SOME PAPERS, I DON'T KNOW IF IT IS GOING TO HELP, I THINK I AM SPENDING MONEY FOR NOTHING. BUT THANKS ANYWAY.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
