What Is The Transfer Deed?

A transfer deed is a legal document used to transfer the ownership of a property from one party to another. It contains details about the property being transferred, the parties involved, the consideration (price or value), and any other relevant terms and conditions. The transfer deed serves as evidence of the change in ownership and is registered with the government authority to establish the new owner’s rights and interests in the property.

What Is The Procedure Of Registration Of A Transfer Deed?

Registration of a transfer deed refers to the process of officially recording the transfer of ownership of a property from one party (the transferor/seller) to another (the transferee/buyer) with the relevant government authority. It involves submitting the transfer deed and accompanying documents to the designated registration office, where the details of the transfer are entered into the official land or property records. The registration process involves the following steps:

Step By Step Process For Registration Of Transfer Deed :

  1. Prepare the transfer deed:
    • The transferor (seller) and transferee (buyer) need to prepare a transfer deed or a conveyance deed. This document includes details about the property being transferred, such as its description, boundaries, and any other relevant information. It should also mention the consideration amount (price) for the transfer.
  2. Stamp duty and payment:
    • Stamp duty is a tax levied on the transfer deed, and it varies from jurisdiction to jurisdiction. The transfer deed must be stamped according to the applicable stamp duty rates. The required stamp duty is typically paid to the appropriate authority or government department.
  3. Notarization:
    • In some jurisdictions, the transfer deed may need to be notarized by a notary public or a similar authorized officer. Notarization verifies the authenticity of the signatures on the document.
  4. Submission to the registrar:
    • The transfer deed, along with any required supporting documents, must be submitted to the registrar or land registry office responsible for maintaining property records. The registrar’s office will review the documents for completeness and compliance with the applicable laws.
  5. Document verification:
    • The registrar will examine the transfer deed and supporting documents to ensure they meet the legal requirements. They will verify the identities of the transferor and transferee, as well as the details of the property being transferred.
  6. Payment of registration fees:
    • Along with the transfer deed, registration fees must be paid to the registrar. The fees cover the cost of registering the transfer and updating the property records.
  7. Document return:
    • After registration, the registered transfer deed and supporting documents are returned to the parties involved as proof of the transfer of ownership.
  8. Registration and endorsement:
    • Once the transfer deed is deemed complete and compliant, it will be registered by the registrar. The registrar will endorse the transfer on the original deed, indicating the transfer has been recorded in the official records.
  9. Issuance of registration certificate:
    • After the transfer deed is registered, the registrar will issue a registration certificate or a certified copy of the transfer deed. This certificate serves as proof of ownership for the transferee.


The registration of a transfer deed serves as legal evidence of the change in ownership and helps establish the rights and interests of the new owner. It provides protection to the transferee against any potential disputes or claims on the property. The procedure for registering a transfer deed may vary depending on the jurisdiction. The registration of a transfer deed provides legal validity and protection to the transferee, as it creates a public record of the transaction. It is essential to complete the registration process in compliance with the applicable laws and regulations to ensure the transfer of ownership is legally recognized.
