In Singapore, legal documents are executed in 2 forms: (1) an instrument under hand or (2) in a more solemn form called deed. A deed is an instrument which either of itself passes an interest, right or property, creates an obligation binding on some person, or amounts to an affirmation or confirmation of something which passes an interest, right or property. A person cannot be required to execute a deed until he has read it over or until its contents have been read out and fully explained. The maker of the deed will be bound by the contents of the deed. The deed has to be written, signed, sealed and delivered by the maker. Deeds are to be signed or attested by witnesses usually a solicitor as an additional form of solemnity. Examples of precedents annexed to this document are Deed of Separation, Deed of Indemnity and Undertaking, Deed of Settlement, Deed of Guarantee, Deed of Termination and Deed of Arrangement.
