Question: "B. & S." deeds

From: "Messman, Don"

I am a Land Surveyor working for PG&E in Sacramento, California. I have run across a deed reference upon one of the railroad maps I am using for a new pipeline alignment.

In the Schedule of Property there is a reference to "B. & S." deeds.

What does the B&S stand for?

The reference on the Schedule of Property stands for Bargain & Sale Deed. This reference indicates that the railroad has fee title to the property as conveyed to them under a Bargain & Sale Deed.

Thanks for the very fast response to my question. We checked with a title company and verified the meaning through Black's Law Dictionary.
