What is the difference between a Title Deed and Deed of Transfer

posted in Deeds Office

There seems to be a lot of confusion between a Title Deed and Deed of Transfer. Basically it is exactly the same document. Title Deed is just a more common name that is used.

The legal documentation submitted when transferring a property is called a Deed of Transfer. We have had quite a few queries regarding this and had to explain that they are in essence the same documents.

Next time you order a Title Deed and receive a Deed of Transfer, don't be alarmed, they are the same document.
