Not really horrible, but truly not for everyone. Good if you are looking for land or want a true fixer-upper. The interest rates were high, last I checked, but if you can't get financed elsewhere it might be an option.

I would suggest shopping around, regardless of what company you are looking at.

The are really high. A few months back I talked to them about a lot. 13% intrest. Well, I passed on it. I was shopping around and found a .5 acre they had for 30,000 and found another lot with another company within sight of their lot 1 acre for 13,000. They are a rip off. I know for a fact they gave someone only 3000 for a home and turned around and sold it for 59,000. They are ridiculous. But, they don't do credit checks so for some people this may be the only option. Just make sure you can make all the payments.

We moved to Ky and went through them to get a home.The first one was a singlewide on a nice piece of land the problem was everything started breaking down shortly after we moved in.we found another place that was so much better but after about a month we noticed our water bill was high and then we found out that the pipes were in the process of not being functional.We missed a couple payments because we had to fix the repairs,we were told to leave in a month if we couldnt pay the whole thing so sufficed to say we no longer live there.They are not a bad company but unless you know what to look out for you might end up paying more than you bargained for.

Doesn't matter what they bought a home for or what they sold it for. They are there to make money and I'm sure they have lost money on deals. Just because you found something else cheaper doesn't make them rip offs. You bought a .5 acre lot-how large was the one they were selling? Did it have sewer/septic/water/electric already on it? Was it the same land lay? Sounds to me like you couldn't get financed through them and are just voicing your opinion with no actual facts.

Buyer beware is the important thing to keep in mind when dealing with the people at Kentucky Land Co. (But that's true with all business deals.) Nevertheless, you can get a good deal if you tread carefully. I got a good deal from them on eight acres in Edmonson County, but a bad deal the second time around a lot near Nolin. Both times the salesman was Bart. First deal he didn't even show up so I looked the place over and went to the office and made the deal. I sold that acreage via eBay with Ky. Land's permission and broke even on the deal. Never actually met the buyer -- he sent me my share and made a deal with Ky. Land for the balance owed. So I got off the hook. Looking back, I should have held on to that 8 acres (I later inherited money that I could have invested into a mobile home.) The second deal I lost money. I bought the land in a hurry -- was rushing to the airport to send my grandson back to Calif. I handed over a twelve hundred to Bart on the spot after looking over the front half of the lot. Too late I discovered the property dropped off some three or four stories in the back; my grandson and I could have walked off that bluff because Bart failed to warn us about it. Trees and weeds concealed the edge and you couldn't tell until you were a couple feet from the edge. When I complained they wouldn't let me switch to another lot elsewhere. I hired a lawyer. The people at Ky. Land and I went round and round over this deal: I contacted the BBB -- they obviously never registered the complaint; I wrote the officials in Frankfort. I drove around with signs on my van. Finally I proposed they give me back half the money I put down and we'd bury the hatchet. They did. For people with weak credit, no credit or bad credit then Ky. Land Co. may work. However, the restrictions on the land may stop some who don't have the financial resources to setup a trailer or build a house. Read the fine print and ask a lot of questions -- take nothing for granted. Most importantly, watch your step -- you may fall down a well, a sink hole or fall five stories onto a pile of rocks.

Yes I know exactly what you mean, the same thing happened to me. I purchased a used car for my wife in Lexington. When I got home the stupid salesperson never told me to open the trunk. Well when I got home it was too small. They would not give me my money back

the house even had a basement leak... and some of the leaks were comming in from one corner of the basement where the electrical box was located...the water leaked around and on top of electrical box... how was that house going to pass an inspection, before the insurance would insure that home... Really... they had my $1000.00 deposit and insisted that I had to get insurance on a house that would not pass a fire code... and they would not refund my money... they are professional rip off artist..

U people are idiots. When u have no money, your lucky to have someone that will do a contract for deed situation so that you can obtain home ownership..them granting a contact for deed comes at a price!! They arent the government or a charity..they are a business and they are making money..everybody wants something for nothing. If you dont have credit or any money and do a contract for deed in order to obtain a home, you should really find the way to improve your credit and then obtain a loan from a bank and then pay off the contract for deed so that you own the property and your not paying the inflated contract for deed interest anymore.

Ky land company is part of the problem in Hardin County. You have a bunch of yokel developers who are trashing up this county with budget scraping developments and breaking up farms for mobile home lots. Several years ago hardincounty had the highest per capita amount of house trailers in the state. Go down Gaithersburg Station Rd and look at the development across from the sewer plant. Dozens of dead trees around two ugly retention basins and the empty lots are overgrown and full of construction debris and equipment. Has no one any pride in their legacy? If you go to Barren, Larue or Taylor county you won't see near the shithole developments that we have here. We are competing with areas down south for industry and frankly if I was a scout for company and drove around this ugly county I would strike it off my list, other than a few pockets there doesn't seem to be a lot of civic pride or planning and zoning standards/enforcement.

Would you believe Hardin County fiscal court member, and Magistrate, E.G.Thompson, lives directly across from the Gaither Station Rd. sewage treatment plant in one of the 2 subdivisions you speak of?
