receipt +‎ -or


receiptor (plural receiptors)

  1. (law) One who receipts for property taken by the sheriff; one to whom property is delivered for storage or safekeeping, subject to a bond to produce it when litigation concludes.
    • 1941, Walter Houston Anderson, Clyde Bowen, Gus Carr Anderson, A Treatise on the Law of Sheriffs, Coroners and Constables: With Forms
      The receiptor of property received from the sheriff assumes the relationship of bailee toward the officer and the possession of the receiptor is that of the sheriff. Where the receiptor takes possession of the property, this does not have any effect on the attachment lien whatsoever, and the goods are regarded as still being in the possession of the officer.
