    Default Ending a Land Contract When a Relationship Breaks Up

    A woman owned a home that she sold to her daughter's boyfriend under a land contract, so that he and her daughter would have a place to live. The boyfriend is making his payments as required, has the place insured, is paying the taxes and utility bills -- he's fulfilling his duties. He's the only buyer under the land contract. However, he and he daughter are breaking up and the mother no longer wants to sell him the property. Can she end the land contract and evict him?

    Default Re: Ending a Land Contract When a Relationship Breaks Up

    A land contract, or contract for deed, is a means by which property can be sold to another with the seller financing the transaction. As long as the buyer fulfills the terms of the contract -- making required payments, and fulfilling duties to insure the property, pay taxes, and properly maintain the premises consistent with the terms of the contract -- the seller has no basis to seek forfeiture or foreclosure of the land contract.
