A land contract aka contract for deed is an installment sale. This give ownership rights as buyer has equitable title.

Buyer can also deduct the interest paid on the note.

One thing you need to check is the laws for the state where the property is located. Some states effectively make a tenant buyer an owner with equitable interest while other states treat the person more like a renter.

Your contact also will define the relationship. If the contract and the state regs are in conflict a judge can decide what way to pursue things.
