TRADITION at English => English (Bouviers Law) Of Explained:

TRADITION, contracts, civil law. The act by which a thing is delivered by
one or more persons to one or more others.
2. In sales it is the delivery of possession by the proprietor with an
intention to transfer the property to the receiver. Two things are therefore
requisite in order to transmit property in this way: 1. The intention or
consent of the former owner to transfer it; and, 2. The actual delivery in
pursuance of that intention.
3. Tradition is either real or symbolical. The first is where the ipsa
corpora of movables are put into the hands of the receiver. Symbolical
tradition is used where the thing is incapable of real delivery, as, in
immovable subjects, such as lands and houses; or such as consist in jure
(things incorporeal) as things of fishing and the like. The property of
certain movables, though they are capable of real delivery, may be
transferred by symbol. Thus, if the subject be under look and key, the
delivery of the key is considered as a legal tradition of all that is
contained in the repository. Cujas, Observations, liv. 11, ch. 10; Inst.
lib. 2, t. 1, Sec. 40; Dig. lib. 41, t. 1, 1. 9; Ersk. Princ. Laws of Scotl.
bk. 2, t. 1, s. 10, 11; Civil Code Lo. art. 2452, et seq.
4. In the common law the term used in the place of tradition is
delivery. (q.v.)
