Slide 2:

Everyone has to come across a legal deed or legal document at least once in their life. However, not many people are aware of the legal meanings or definitions of the words deed and document and that is why they use these words in an interchanging manner. It has to be noted that these two are different words having a different meaning in the language of law and therefore, they should not be used in such a manner. A Deed means a written record which is signed by a person who has written it and it is granted to another individual. This written record can be a contract or any other agreement which is legally binding on the person or persons who sign it.

Slide 3:

A Document is a matter on which someone has expressed or recorded something with the help of symbols, or letters or different marks or some figures. Such documents mean letters, agreements or even maps as they record some events, Places or conditions of a contract. Difference between deed and document • A deed is always a document but a document is not always a deed. It means that the document which contains an agreement upon certain conditions between two or more individuals is called as a deed. Therefore not every document such as a letter or a map can be called as a deed

Slide 4:

but as the deed is a written instrument with the help of letters and figures and symbols, every deed is a document. • There are a contract and conditions agreed upon by both the parties to a deed, but a document is merely a written matter which can be anything including a contract or an agreement. • A deed is legally binding on the individual who writes it and signs it, but even though any document is legally admissible in the court of law, it is not binding on the person who has written it. For example

Slide 5:

the contents of a letter are not legally binding on the person who has written that letter because it is not a contract or an agreement which is signed by both the parties. A deed has to be a legal document whereas a document need not contain any legal reference as they can be any written manner. A deed is a legal document which is drafted by the rules and regulations of the concerned law and that is the reason it is binding on the parties who have signed the deed. Whereas the document can be just a piece of paper on which something is written and recorded. Be sure to check out this website for more information on partnership deed format
