Definitions from Shorter Oxford English Dictionary Sixth Edition (version 188.8.131.52)What are title deeds?
To prove ownership of land or property that is not registered, the owner or lender (if there is a mortgage) will have a bundle of documents which would normally show the chain in the line of ownership of the land or property over a number of years.
Note: When registering land or property for the first time the owner must lodge documents showing the chain of ownership going back at least 15 years.
These documents are usually known as title deeds
and include various papers such as:
contacts for sale,
leases, if the land or property is leasehold.
