A CUSTOMIZED LAND CONTRACT DOCUMENT DRAFTED BY OUR PROFESSIONALS
If you are buying or selling a parcel of real estate and want to have the owner/seller finance it on behalf of the buyer, then you can create a document called a Land Contract. A Land Contract provides the seller with increased revenues through the generation of interest payments, while allowing buyers to get into a home who otherwise might have difficulty finding bank financing. Let Standard Legal’s document preparation professionals prepare the Land Contract documents you require using the information that you supply to us. Then we provide everything back to you, ready to sign!
ANSWER SIMPLE QUESTIONS, GET FINISHED LEGAL DOCUMENTS READY-FOR-SIGNATURE!
A Land Contract allows the owner of a property to sell that property to a buyer over the course of time, financing the purchase price on behalf of the buyer and collecting interest on the sale amount. The buyer does not need to go out and find a mortgage from a bank or mortgage company, nor does the buyer have to pay the entire purchase price to the seller upfront. Rather, the buyer signs a Land Contract with the seller agreeing to purchase the property in either installment payments or in installment payments with a balloon payment on a certain date. The buyer then moves into the property and makes the agreed upon monthly payments. When all of the payments (and any required balloon payments) are made according to the terms of the Land Contract, only then does the buyer finally take title of the property from the seller.
Using some basic information that you supply to Standard Legal, our document preparation professionals will prepare the following Land Contract documents:
Land Contract Installment Payments – A fully completed Land Contract utilizing a payment schedule that includes a down payment, with equal monthly payments being made each month thereafter, until such time as the entire purchase price is paid in full*;
Land Contract Balloon Payments – A fully completed Land Contract utilizing a payment schedule, with equal monthly payments being made each month thereafter and then a balloon payment required to be made at a later date – this balloon payment will pay the balance in full*;
Land Contract Vacant Land – A fully completed Land Contract for vacant land utilizing a payment schedule, in installment payments*;
Memorandum Land Contract – A Memorandum of Land Contract that can be filed with the County Recorder or Record’s Office in the county in which the property is located.
* Note that with your purchase of Standard Legal’s document preparation service, you will receive one of the fully completed land contracts listed above. If more than one type of land contract is required, additional charges will apply.
ADDITIONAL DOCUMENTS INCLUDED WITH THIS LAND CONTRACT DOCUMENT PREPARATION SERVICE:
Additionally, in land contract transactions, other documents are required to be provided to the purchaser of the property – and these documents are included at no additional charge:

IMPORTANT NOTICE FOR CALIFORNIA RESIDENTS: The State of California has costly and complex registration requirements for each county in that state to become what they call “legal document assistants”. Because of these onerous county-by-county requirements, Standard Legal has chosen not to provide document preparation services to any California resident. Should a California resident place an order for Document Preparation, Standard Legal will email you asking if you wish to convert that order into one for legal forms software. If so, we will credit the price difference between the two orders and send you links to access your software download. California residents can also use our FREE Attorney Find service to find a local attorney, if they prefer to have legal documents drafted for them.

WHAT IS THE PROCESS TO CREATE A FINISHED LEGAL DOCUMENT?
The four-step process for using our Legal Document Preparation Service is simple:
1) Review the Document Preparation topics available and purchase the service you want.
2) After checkout, Standard Legal will provide a link to an online questionnaire or will email you a questionnaire specific to the topic you purchased. Simply access the online questionnaire or reply to that email: read each question and answer it as clearly and completely as you can. (If you find the written Q&A process too difficult, simply call or email us to schedule a phone conference; we will call at the arranged time to ask those same question over the phone, taking down your answers exactly as you give them to us.)
3) Standard Legal will review the information you provide to us from this questionnaire, checking it for consistency, completeness, spelling, grammar and other basics. We will then forward a confirmation email to you outlining the data that has been collected. If a response to a question is omitted or unclear, Standard Legal may contact you again to obtain additional information.
4) Within 3 business days after this final data confirmation, Standard Legal will provide the legal documents you have ordered in PDF format by email, which you then print out yourself. Detailed instructions covering what to do with the signed, fully executed documents are provided as well. If you do not have access to a printer, Standard legal offers printed documents delivered by first-class mail for an additional fee during checkout.
See? Simple, affordable and stress-free. That’s the process for Standard Legal’s Document Preparation Services!
HOW DO I KNOW WHICH LEGAL DOCUMENTS I NEED?
By law, Standard Legal is not authorized to advise you as to which documents you should use or may need. Such advice would be considered the “practice of law.” Under the guidelines for legal document preparation services, you must make all legal decisions yourself, including decisions about the type of documents you need.
Standard Legal provides detailed descriptions of each of the document sets available for use in its preparation services. Standard Legal can also provide a sample of each document, so that you can see a portion of any document so that you can be sure that the completed document will meet your needs. Detailed information concerning each specific document preparation topic is also available, as well as general information about most subjects at the Standard Legal Law Library.
After you have reviewed the sample forms, read the topic-specific information we offer concerning the documents, and have reviewed our Law Library articles, if you still do not know which document or service will best suit your needs, you should either consult an attorney before choosing your documents or consider having an attorney handle your case. Visit our Attorney Find program for details if you choose that route.
WHAT IF I CAN COMPLETE A LEGAL DOCUMENT MYSELF?
Then you should! Standard Legal offers a variety of do-it-yourself legal form software titles that you can purchase and prepare on your own, which will save you even more money. If you know which forms you need and feel that you have the ability to prepare the documents yourself on your computer, Standard Legal’s self-help software is the way to go! Learn more >
CREDIT TOWARD DOCUMENT PREPARATION SERVICE
Say you’ve already purchased one of Standard Legal’s do-it-yourself legal form software titles.
Then you decide that you would be better served having one of our professionals prepare those same legal documents for you.
No worries! Standard Legal will credit the full price of the software you’ve already purchased against the price of the document preparation service you want!
So if you’ve already purchased the Last Will and Testament software for $14.95 and then decide you want Standard Legal to prepare a completed Will document for you, we will deduct the $14.95 you’ve already spent on the software from the price of the document preparation service! It’s how we treat customers with respect.
NOTE: the title of the software purchased and the type of document you wish to have us prepare must match. In other words, credit is provided only if you want us to prepare a Will document and you previously purchased the Will software. Further, the software purchase must have been made in the same name as the person for whom the documents will be prepared, and that purchase must be verifiable in our records.
