Purchasing and selling a house are two of the biggest financial transactions most people ever do. This guide explains the legal process, focusing on the standard procedure. If you are interested in doing a land installment contract, or rent to own, see my guide here. If the property you are interested in is in foreclosure, see my Ohio Foreclosure guide here. Once the property is sold, the seller will transfer his interest in the property to the buyer through a deed. See my Ohio Deeds guide here.
