A conveyance is the transfer and assignment of any property right or interest from one individual or entity (the conveyor) to another (the conveyee). This is usually accomplished through a written instrument - most often a deed - that transfers title to, or creates a lien on property.

Some sources of authority consider the written instrument itself a “conveyance.”
