Do I need a lawyer to draw one up? Is there a downloadable "FSBO" sales contract I can do? We own the house free and clear, no mortgage - just a simple "We are selling this for $xx with $xx in closing cost help, as-is, to __________________" sort of contract, but _______________ is getting a mortgage and I assume the mortgage company needs a proper contract.

Use the title company. You pay them to make sure it is done right.

I don't have a RE agent, and I assume the mortgage company is going to choose the title company, but the mortgage company won't do the mortgage until they have a sales contract.

I have found some online, though, that might work out.

You should choose the title company.......I always do.

Get the seller and buyer in the same place and get a contract signed and take that contract to your mortgage co.

I do it all the time.

I live in FL - house is in TN. I am selling, buyer is buying. Ergo, I don't have a mortgage company, the buyer does.

No title company I know will provide a contract, too much liability in it for them if the deal goes sideways. Go to an office supply store or google one. However those likely won't be specific enough to deal with any local or state laws/ requirements so take that into consideration.

It is why title companies get paid. It is what they do. of course they have other duties but a primary one is to ensure there is a valid contract between the parties. At least the ones here in Texas do this.

The public library. No joke.
