A "devisee" refers to an individual or entity who is designated to receive real property (land, buildings, real estate) in a deceased person's Last Will and Testament.
For example, if a person's will states, "I devise my house and the surrounding land to my son, John," then John is the "devisee" of the property, which in this case is the house and the land associated with it.
The term is specific to real property, whereas the term Legatee is used for individuals who receive personal property (such as money, jewelry, or vehicles) through a will.
When creating a will, it's important to clearly identify devisees, the properties they will receive, and any conditions or terms associated with the transfer.
Therefore, when drafting a will, it's best to consult an Estate Attorney provide guidance that accurately represent the testator's intentions and adheres to legal requirements.
