Many people visit us to run online title searches. While they often search for the title on a property, they usually want to know where to find the deed to a house. Titles aren’t physical, but conceptual.
When you own a property, you own both the deed and the title. In real estate, to hold a title means you have ownership and a right to use the property. A property deed is a legal document that transfers property ownership from a seller/grantor to a buyer/grantee. A deed contains the legal description of the property (including property lines) and denotes the seller/grantor and the buyer/grantee. It shows who you bought your house from, and when you sell it, it shows who you sold it to. Both parties must sign the document to make it official.
