A gift of deed is a legally binding contract that transfers the ownership of a real estate property from one person to another, according to the Real Estate Lawyers. The donor, the person that gives the gift of deed, hires a real estate attorney to draft, review and file the necessary legal paperwork required to transfer the property to the donee, the person who receives the gift.
