Paper title

Land measurement for planning and development purposes, Guidance Note, Global 1st edition, Published by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) in May 2021, defines the paper title or title deeds as: ‘…the legal documents by which land is or was bought and sold; these may include conveyances, transfers and indentures. The root of title is the deed that first created the plot of land, and the resulting boundaries are called the paper title boundaries.’
