Let's cover repossessions as it relates to contract for deeds.  This question has been asked online and
shows up often as a search in the search engines.  The term that is more often used is contract for deed
cancellation
.  This is the result of a buyer defaulting a on a contract for deed, in which the seller will contact
their attorney and start the cancellation process after the buyer breaks their contract for deed agreement.
    It's possible that the homeowner won't make their payments in rare cases and could be in foreclosure.
in these situations it's possible that the bank could repossess on the house from the homeowner (seller).

For the best success you'll want to work on your credit history and improve it so that you can refinance,
the property into your name as soon as possible. The terms of any owner financing contract can discuss
the rules that will determine the stipulations on when a default or repossession will need to occur.  In most
cases it will come down to making the payments on time.  It's possible that their could be a breach of
contract for other reason such as not refinancing the property within the given balloon timeframe.  For a
seller to cancel a contract for deed their will be increased costs involved so the seller will usually wait
until the buyer is behind before they will consider starting the cancellation process.
    To avoid a potential repossession often a seller will take some initial steps before letting a buyer
into the house, which include a credit check, pulling a credit report to view the credit history.
Repossessions are one of the possible disadvantages of a contract for deed.  Any repossession
should follow under any contract for deed laws for the this state of Minnesota.  If you have any questions
at any time that you need to ask one of our real estate agents, they are here to help you.
    Our agents goal is to not have any repossessions for either party in the transaction.  If it requires
a credit check, or open communication to help avoid this, this is why our agent is here to help with
the owner financing contract for deed transaction from the initial email of listings, to the closing day.
    Repossessions do happen with banks on home owners, but this is through the foreclosure process
which can take 1-2 years in today's market.  With a contract for deed, a repossession is through the
contract for deed process which doesn't take but 2-3 months if done efficiently and quickly, so it's
recommend that a buyer keep in very close contact with a seller as to their payment status so that
the seller doesn't initiate the cancellation process over a missed payment or two.
    With enough open communication upfront, using a payment calculator, and making sure that the
buyer can truly afford the home upfront, it's less likely that a buyer will default on the contract for
deed.  It's possible at anytime that a buyer could lose their job or their spouse could.  This is why
it's important for the buyer to have some reserves as a back up for an emergency fund.  As a buyer
or seller with more questions about the cancellation process you can talk to one of our agents by
email, text, or phone, or it's highly recommended to talk to a local real estate attorney, our agent
can recommend one for you.  Want to read an article about local Minnesota homes for sale?  You
