A grantor, or the seller of a property, is legally endowed to perform a transfer of property deed on his own, as long as he is considered competent, reports Investopedia. However, it is advised to consult with a qualified real estate lawyer to overlook the transfer for various reasons.
A real estate deed delineates various levels of protection for the grantee, or the buyer, and obligations of the grantor, according to Investopedia. Because of this, a legal expert should be consulted about the details and legal ramifications of the transfer. However, legally, as long as certain conditions are met, a grantor and grantee can execute the transfer on their own.
