When buying land from a family member, what documents would make it official?
What do I need to have to make a land purchase without a real estate agent?
You would want a standard purchase and sales agreement. There are probably templates online. I strongly advise you to have it reviewed by an attorney before signing. You could use LegalZoom or similar and they may have a template. You’ll also need to have someone draw up the deed and record it. Depending where you live, it could be a title company, or a lawyer. For the few hundred bucks for each of these things, it’s money well spent to make sure it’s done right.
Hope this helps.
