deed poll

A deed signed only by the grantor.This is the typical type of deed,but one rarely hears it called a poll deed or deed poll. Contrast with a deed indented, also called an indenture deed, which contained promises, representations, or warranties by both the seller and purchaser and so required both signatures.The documents were distinguished because the deed poll had a “polled” or clean-cut edge,while the deed indented had an indented or jagged edge.
