While drafting legal documents like Leave and License, Agreement to Sale, Sale Deed etc. can we use plain english instead of using the legal language. Are there any downsides to writing legal documents without using legalese? 

Secondly why do we need to use the same drafts and use the same legal language while drafting the legal documents.

Request people to comment for my search..

As such there is no need to use legal language or wordings. As per law, the drafting should be simple and there should be no ambiguity. You are not required to follow same legal language.

u can use ur words as u wish...but should b clear or fair..

Legal language is preferable as it conveys a clear meaning.... Where as in a simple or rather to say in our daily language,a word can be misinterpreted....
