Installment Sales Contract

An agreement to sell property wherein title to the property is conveyed to the buyer only after all installment payments have been made. The advantage to the seller of using a contract for deed rather than taking a mortgage from the buyer is that it is easier and faster to cancel a contract for deed in the event of buyer default than it is to foreclose on a mortgage. Also referred to as a contract for deed or a land contract.
