A deed is a document that identifies the owner of real property and transfers the title of real property from one person to another.

As with loan and mortgage documents, questions most often arise as to the genuineness of one or more signatures on a deed, not only of the person or persons transferring the title of the property, but also sometimes of the associated witness signature.  Sufficient specimens of the purported signatory (as well as the suspected writer) will allow forensic examinations to be undertaken to determine the genuineness or otherwise of the questioned signature.  Handwritten entries (such as dates and names) on the document may also warrant examination.
