Land contracts can facilitate the sale of real estate, as it is the seller who decides the credit requirements and the amount of the acompt.

The parties will also agree on the interest rate. However, in Michigan, the interest rate cannot exceed 11%. It is possible that the rate will change over time, but the average interest rate must be less than or equal to 11%. Land contracts are a way to buy a home without a mortgage. Rental agreements with the ability to buy and rent housing contracts are also ways to buy a home without a mortgage.

When a buyer violates a contract in the event of late payments, another remedy the seller may have is enforcement. Most land contracts have acceleration clauses. These clauses allow the seller to explain that the entire balance of the contract (and not just late payments) is due when the buyer misses a payment. In other words, the buyer must pay what he is late, plus the rest of the contract. Before signing a land contract, a buyer must search for title in their county`s register of documents to ensure that the seller owns the house. There could be existing instructions about the property or other things that limit a buyer`s rights to the property. If the seller has his own title, the buyer may want to register his interest in the property in the register of documents to ensure that his interest is protected. Michigan Residential Purchase and Sale Agreements are documents that are created by potential buyers to place an offer for a piece of property.
