Right, title and interest
|Towards more picturesque speech™
Of the three, “title” — formal legal ownership of something capable of being owned — is the narrowest and “interest” — encompassing equitable and legal claims, expectations and aspirations that might through the machinery of some judicial process benefit the claimant — is the widest so any prose stylist would therefore declaim “right” (one person’s enforceable claim against another person or thing, whether amounting to a title or not) and “title” for “interest”.
Especially since, if you’re pedantic enough to want to include all three, you will also be pedantic enough to use each’s correct preposition, and naturally they’re different: one has a right over, a title to, and an interest in, so you may find yourself granting something “free and clear of any rights, title and interest over, to and in, as they case may for the time being be ...”.
I know, right.
