Gullberg isn't much help on this one - again. The US real estate note may be closer than anything in the UK, whilst the Swedish definition seems to involve remitting or waiving a notional debt.

A Bill of Sale passes title to chattels and not land, as here.

I agree. So maybe preface payment docket with notional. BTW, I'd call the parties the donor and donee.

Example sentence(s):
  • Gåvor av fastigheter mot en så kallad vederlagsrevers var tidigare väldigt vanligt... skriva till på originalreversen "härmed efterskänker jag till NN (gåvotagaren) såsom gåva hela skuldbeloppet XX kr enligt denna revers samt upplupen ränta per

Notes to answerer
Asker: It seems to be a promissory note from the givee to the giver as compensation for the property received in order to avoid tax. Articles I've read recommend that it be paid off, as in my translation. Paying somebody for a gift makes it not much of a gift.
