Land Sale Contract or Contract for Deed

A  Land Sale Contract, also known as a Contract for Deed, is a seller-financed sale of real property where the Seller retains title until the purchase price is paid in full.  These contracts were some of the most abused legal instruments in real estate.  As a result, the State of Texas has very specific laws governing the use of  Contracts for Deed that are intended primarily to protect the Buyer.  As a Seller or a Buyer, you should understand the laws before entering a Land Sale Contract.  If you are already a party to a Land Sale Contract, or considering entering one, then hire an attorney to advise you on your rights and obligations.   Call Andrew Bernick at 512-763-5370 or email him at
