A Title Deed is the most important document as far as property ownership is concerned. It is a legal document which confirms or proves that one is the owner of a property after having been transferred into ones names. It get filed at the Title Deeds offices in various areas according to where the property is situated and the Deeds Offices takes 10 days to deliver a title deed to the conveyancer after registration.
