Deeds

Deeds must be signed and attested by a witness who is not a party to the deed. Counterpart Deeds are frequently executed with multiple copies (counterparts) to enable each party to the deed to have a copy in their possession. Counterparts that are properly executed are considered to be one deed. 

A party to a deed who executes the deed in accordance with the necessary formalities becomes bound by the provisions of the deed from the moment of execution.
