Definitions of LAND CONTRACT
Sort: Oldest first
Conditional real property sale agreement. A buyer buys a property, but gains title only after paying the entire price including interest and other charges, as applicable. Contrast to a mortgage. Here, the lender has to apply for a court order, as this arrangement allows a lender to sell the property on default. Also known as contract for deed.
