Actually, putting “this contract shall not be recorded” in big letters is a SURE way for the buyer to record it. Having done well over 200 CFD closings, I can tell you that 99% of buyer don’t think about recording, because they don’t know.
Simple ways to prevent recording are outlined in my “Alternative Real Estate Financing Course,” including not having a notary acknowledgement. Also, some state, like Maryland REQUIRE recording.
