What is a deed?
The Bankrate.com financial term of the day is: "deed."
A deed is a piece of paper that says you own it and it's yours. It's document that conveys your right to a piece of property and is filed with your county so that anyone can see that you are -- indeed -- the owner.
When you own property and have to prove it, you need a deed.
