According to Section 54 of the Transfer of Property (TP) Act, 1882, a sale is defined as the transfer of ownership in exchange for a price paid or promised, part-paid or part- promised. A sales deed is a document that renders the sale complete. A seller transfers the rights of ownership of the property to the buyer through the sale deed. It is a crucial document as it proves the purchaser has become the owner of a property after buying it. A sales Deed lists the details related to price and terms and conditions on which the two parties reached an agreement for the sale of the property. If a property is meant for the future and there are terms and conditions attached, then it is called an agreement for sale. A sale deed is completed when there is an immediate transfer of property.
A sale deed also known as final deed or conveyance deed is a legal document used in property
transactions as a shred of primary evidence for sale and transfer of ownership of property in favour of the buyer from the seller. It is a legal instrument in writing which transfers the ownership rights of a property from one person to another in exchange for a price paid or some consideration. Sale Deed is done for the sale or purchase of the immovable property. The person transferring the property is known as the transferor or seller, while the person paying an amount to get the property is called the transferee or buyer. It also acts as proof that the buyer is the complete owner of the said property. A sale deed must be registered under The Registration Act, 1908 within four months from the date of execution.
