BARGAIN  AND SALE, in English law, a contract whereby property, real or personal, is transferred from one person -- called the bargainer -- to another -- called the bargainee -- for a [v. 03 p. 0399] valuable consideration; but the term is more particularly used to describe a mode of conveyance of lands.
