Termor Law and Legal Definition

Termor is a person who holds lands or tenements for a term of years, or for life.

If a termor underlets the premises, or a part of them, for part of the term, so as to leave a reversion in himself, that is a new term created out of the former, and is within the words of the act, and, if it be for more than three years, it must clearly be in writing. [Briles v. Pace, 35 N.C. 279, 283-284 (N.C. 1852)].
