What if you do not have a contract for real estate but you have paid money and fixed up the land?

Too broad a question with too much unknown information. There is something in law called "equitable interest" but depending on the laws of your state and locale many things would have to be established and decided upon. What kind of 'land?' What agreement, if any, did you have with the owner? Were the 'improvements' made as a form of down-payment? Did you farm it or take crops off it? Did you use it to operate some kind of business from? Etc. Etc. Etc. You probably need a good real estate attorney.
