The seller and buyer will usually be the only parties to the deed, but it may be necessary to join other parties, such as the trustees of a settlement1 or a non-owning occupier, so as to satisfy the principle that anyone whose concurrence is necessary in order to transfer the legal estate or who is to give a valid receipt for capital money arising out of the transaction must be joined as a party to the deed2.
Where the seller is bankrupt, his trustee in bankruptcy will transfer the property and the seller is not a party to the deed3.
