Akron, OH asked in Real Estate Law for Michigan

Q: Does a real estate transaction (NOT lease/rent) have to be notarized for it to be legal?

I notarized a landcontract and am not registered on the title. I signed a termination agreement which I did not wish to move forward and notarized. Is the termination agreement able to cancel my landcontract without being notarized?

A: Deeds require notarization.

I'm not sure what other 'not lease/rent' would be.

If you are thinking of entering into any real estate transaction without the advice of a lawyer, please think carefully! This is the largest single purchase most people will ever make, and entering into it without legal advice is just plain dangerous.

Don't be penny wise and pound foolish about this!
