A grantee is the person or entity who receives ownership of a property or Asset from another person, known as the Grantor.

The grantee is the recipient of the property and is then named as the new owner in a legal document, typically a Deed.

After a death, real estate owned by the deceased may transfer ownership to Heirs and Beneficiaries, or sold; in this case the grantee is the buyer purchasing the property from the deceased's Estate.
