What is a Conveyance Deed?
A conveyance deed is an essential document required for the purchase of a property. We explain its importance and what a home buyer should look out for, when signing the document
‘Conveyance’ refers to the act of transferring the title, ownership, rights and interests in a property, from one entity to another. The term ‘deed’ refers to an instrument, like a written document that is signed by all the parties to a contract, in this case, the seller and buyer. It is a binding contract that is enforceable in a court of law. A conveyance deed is, therefore, a contract in which, the seller transfers all rights to legally own and keep a property. The purchase of a property is not complete without a valid conveyance deed.
It is important to note the difference between an agreement for sale and a sale/conveyance deed. An agreement for sale contains a promise to transfer a property in question in future, on satisfaction of certain terms and conditions. An agreement for sale does not, in itself, create any interest in or charge on a property. Therefore, the sale of a property is not complete without a conveyance deed.
