Title transfer

The act of point in place or time at which ownership of a thing is passed from one person to another. In international trade, this is usually specified in the international sale contract by statements like:

  • “Seller and buyer agree that title for the contract of goods will pass to the buyer when they have been shipped from the seller´s premises”, or
  • “Seller and buyer agree that title for the contact of goods will pass to the buyer when they have been arrived at ………”, or
  • “Seller and buyer agree that the seller will continue to own the contract goods until such time as payment for them has been received.

In some case, a title-bearing document is created through the shipment process; for instance, shipments covered by a negotiable marine bill of lading. Also called transfer of ownership. Model of International Sale Contract.
