Brian Burkhalter Looks like your question has been answered by our fellow ActiveRain members.  (I find it hard to comprehend why the instructors in Utah real estate classes don't cover this material in pre-license classes.)

If this isn't in your text book, you can google the terms and they will provide a clear answer. Just look how easy it was! Took me all of 10 seconds.

Title is the legal way of saying you own a right to something. For real estate purposes, title refers to ownership of the property, meaning that you have the rights to use that property. It may be a partial interest in the property or it may be the full. However, because you have title, you can access the land and potentially modify it as you see fit. Title also means that you can transfer that interest or portion that you own to others. However, you can never legally transfer more than you own.

Deeds, on the other hand, are actually the legal documents that transfer title from one person to another. It must be a written document, according to the Statute of Frauds. Sometimes the Deed is referred to as the vehicle of the property interest transfer. The transfers can be less than the title that you actually have. Deeds must be recorded in the courthouse or assessor's office to make them fully binding in most states, but a failure to file them does not change the transfer of title. It just means that the Deed is not perfected. An imperfect Deed does not mean that there is a problem with the title. It's just a problem with the way that the paperwork surrounding the Deed was handled.

Deed is a legal instrument that transfers ownership.  Title is the rights and privileges the property owner is entitled to.

Brian Burkhalter - DEEDS are legal documents and when an owner sells a home, what is transferred is TITLE.
