When you are in the process of purchasing real estate – particularly if you are a new buyer – you will come across unusual terminologies and jargon. Two of the most common terms you will come across are title and deed. Many people assume the two terms have the same meaning, but actually they are very different. When you own a property outright, you’ll possess both the property’s deed and the title. Being unaware of the difference between a property title and a deed can bring problems to the buyer.
