Generally, a grantee is a person who receives a grant. In the case of a transfer of property by deed,
the Grantee is the person who receives an interest of the property from the Grantor and would
include everyone whose name will be on the title of the property once it has been transferred. A
person can be both a Grantor and a Grantee on a deed. For example, if John Smith currently holds
title to a home and he wants to convey half interest of that family property to his wife, Mary Smith,
John Smith would be listed as the Grantor, and John Smith and Mary Smith would be listed as the Grantee.
