DAF DISCUSSIONS - SANHEDRIN 29

Barry Epstein asked:

If one admits to an obligation of movable objects, and they are in his possession, may the witnesses write a note of admission?

Barry Epstein, Dallas, USA

The Kollel replies:

Like all Shtaros, there must be a directive. However, as the Gemara states, if an act of Kinyan was performed, then a Shtar may be written without a directive, because "Stam Kinyan l'Kesivah Omed" -- a Kinyan is meant to be transcribed in a Shtar.
