What are the Elements of a Deed?
The formats of deeds may differ, as long as the intent to convey title is clearly expressed. Certain elements must be present in a deed to spell out clearly the necessary intent and the property to which it applies.
Remember “CEDDING” for the Elements of a Deed
It may be difficult to remember all of the elements of a deed. There are, however, ways to remember them easily. For instance, CEDDING.
- Consideration (valuable or good)
- Execution (signed by a competent grantor and two witnesses)
- Description of property
- Delivery and acceptance (voluntary)
- Interest or estate being conveyed (habendum clause)
- Names of a grantee and grantor
- Granting and other appropriate clauses
