**DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CONVEYANCE AND CONTRACT**
conveyance is not a contract. The distinction between conveyance and contract is quite clear. Contract remains to be performed and its specific performance may be sought but conveyance passes on the title to property to
another person. Conveyance does not create any right of any action but at the same time it alters the ownership
of existing right. There may be cases where the transaction may partake both contract as well as conveyance.
For example, lease, whereby obligation is created while possession of the property is transferred by lessor to
lessee. More so, contracts are governed by provisions of the Indian Contract Act, 1872 whereas the cases of
transfer of immovable property are governed by the Transfer of Property Act, 1882 in India. A mere contract to
mortgage or sale would not amount to actual transfer of interest in the property but the deed of mortgage or sale
would operate as conveyance of such interest. In other words, once the document transferring immovable
property has been completed and registered as required by law, the transaction becomes conveyance. Any
such transaction would be governed under the provisions of the Transfer of Property Act, 1882.
