A Deed that transfers a legal Estate in land from one owner to another. Modern practice is for the buyer (or, more likely, his legal respresentative) to write the firest draft of the conveyance and allow the seller to ammend it if necessary. See Conveyancing protocol for a discussion of this and related formalities. Strictly speaking, in Registered conveyancing the same document is called a Deed of transfer, and does not act to convey the legal estate. Conveyance of the legal title actually takes place on registration of the transfer.
