TRANSFER (from Lat. transferre, to bear across, carry over), the handing over, removal or conveyance of anything from one person or place to another; also the subject of this transference or the form or method by which it is effected. The term is particularly used in law of the conveyance of property from one person to another, especially of the conveyance of real property (see CONVEYANCING). For the simplification of this process by means of registration of title, see LAND REGISTRATION. For the transference of designs, drawings, etc., by means of transferpaper to the surface of pottery and porcelain, see CERAMICS; for their transfer to stones for printing, see LITHOGRAPHY.
