Commonly Asked Questions
What is the difference between a quitclaim deed and a warranty deed?
A warranty deed offers the buyer certain guarantees from the seller. These include a clean title and that the property is free of easements and liens.
Quitclaim deeds are used when a property is acquired in a non-traditional way. This includes inheritance, trusts, or settlements.
How do I buy or sell property on contract?
A land contract allows a property to be “sold” with the finances remaining between the buyer and seller. The buyer makes the payments to the seller rather than the bank. The tradeoff is that you don’t have your name on the title until the property is paid off.
