Sale Deed is one of the numerous legal documents that come into play when one is engaging in buying or selling the property. 

Learn about what Sale Deed is, how to make its draft, documents required to make the draft and clauses governing it.

What is a Sale Deed?

Sale Deed is a legal document that records the transfer of ownership from the seller to the buyer. While preparing a Sale Deed, all the clauses of the Transfer of Property Act should be carefully examined and drafted to lessen the risks involved. The clauses should be drafted after understanding your requirements and liabilities.

A Sale Deed not only describes the property in detail, but it also outlines the rights and obligations of each party. 

The sale deed is made on a non-legal stamp paper of a value prescribed by the state government. 

Any person who is dealing with the property will come across a sale deed. Therefore, a precaution must be taken to not use a draft sale deed which is available at the first instance. This is because you may want certain clauses to be added, modified or deleted depending on the situation.
