- What vehicle should be use: L/C, Wraps, or Contract for deed, and what is the difference?
L/C and Contract for Deed are different terms for the same type of transaction. You owner finance but hold the deed until you’re paid off. Wraps are just you wrapping your owner financing around any loan you may have on the property. If you buy for $50,000 at 10% then you “wrap” the loan when you owner finance buy selling at $60,000 at 12%.

Shop your attorneys in your area. There are a million real estate attorneys. Find one you like.
