Use the contracts and documents common to your state. Generally speaking, the documents offered by the “gurus” in their courses and on their websites are generic and in order to cover the legal requirements of every state (virtually impossible), are long and complicated. Each state has it’s own special requirements for P&S contracts and especially lease forms. What is legal in one is illegal in another. Rather than having to spend hours “doctoring” generic contracts, get copies of the ones in your state. They are designed for that area, familiar to the parties involved, and will less likely cause the person you are dealing with to run to the ultimate deal killer…a lawyer.
