When anything is to be recorded the signatures have to be notarized before the Clerk will accept the document. In a subject-to deal, I would not record the contract. You can record a memorandum of interest if you want; see www.legalwiz.com - if I remember correctly.
The title will change.
I’d advise getting counsel. If you use a lawyer before and after you sign a contract to purchase real estate, this kind of thing is taken care of by others.
