A Grantor conveys real property to another. The grantor is usually the owner. Although most transfers are voluntary, it may be involuntary. A foreclosure is an example of an involuntary transfer of title.
There are numerous rules regarding the grantor and grantee that will not be covered in this course. Most transfers are normal and special rules do not apply.
Although the grantor is usually the owner of the property, it is possible that the grantor is someone other than the owner if there is a partial interest in the property. An example would be a sub lease. If a tenant sub lets his property, he is the grantor. He conveys his rights in real estate to the new tenant.
