A Maryland deed is a legal document that transfers property ownership from a grantor to a grantee. In most cases, deeds are recorded following the completion of a real estate purchase agreement (with the grantor as the seller, and the grantee as the buyer). However, Maryland also allows for a deed of trust, which has the grantor transferring the title to a trustee (grantee, in this case) to hold until a loan has been repaid to a lender. Beyond the simple conveyance of title, a deed will often provide the grantee with protection against liability for encumbrances and liens.
