Are Deeds And Titles The Same Thing?

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Realty Empire Incorporated

Miami Lakes top agent Stephanie Leon

No,, they are not the same and often confused.

The Deed is the actual legal and physical evidence (document stating "this Deed") and is valid and enforceable.

Title is the legal term commonly used to explain the intricacy of property ownership. Title shows who has right or claims to the property and right of possession. 

So, to make it simple the Deed says who owns the property and the Title shows if any liens, city violations, right of possession, easements and encroachments, mortgages,  etc; exist against the property

Deed and Title go hand and hand. The only way to convey title legally is with a deed.

You know, for industry people, I would bet there are a good amount who couldnt answer this so I have to assume very little not in title or real estate would not know this either.

Good stuff and thanks for the post!
