Deeds—the primary means of conveying away and taking title to real property. More recently—the main document for conveying title to minerals, oil and gas, and other subsurface rights. Although the contents and provisions of the standard deed have changed throughout the years, the basic form remains largely the same. This book addresses the different manners in which title may be held, different types of estates in land, requisite parts of a deed, and requirements for effective and accurate drafting, delivery, and recording. The new second edition includes a thumb drive featuring new and revised forms for the most common deed types.
