A real estate deed is a legal document that represents the transfer of ownership or interest in a property from one person or entity to another. It is used to confirm and record the sale, gift, or transfer of real property, such as land or buildings. The deed typically contains the names of the parties involved (grantor and grantee), a legal description of the property, the purchase price (if applicable), and any conditions or restrictions associated with the transfer. Deeds serve as proof of ownership and are usually recorded in the appropriate government office, such as the county clerk's office, to provide public notice of the transaction.
