Steps to take before Registering a property
An encumbrance is a thing which creates difficulty in transfer of property registration details from one owner to other for example outstanding mortgages, liens on real estate,unpaid property taxes etc.A buyer must check for any encumbrances on the property before buying and should get the property cleared from any encumbrances.This can be checked at the sub registrar’s office within whose jurisdiction the property comes.
- Chain of Documents:
Any buyer should check for all the chain of documents before buying a property.Chain of documents are the documents which specify when and how the property has been transferred from one owner to other.
- Payment of Dues:
Any property should be free from any dues like property taxes,electricity bills, water bills etc. It is the responsibility of the buyer to check this before registering the property.
- Preparation of Deed:
A draft of the deed(Sale Deed,Lease Deed,Gift Deed etc.) that needs to be executed must be prepared on which the details of all the parties involved and the property involved along with terms and conditions must be mentioned clearly before registering the deed.
- Stamp duty calculation:
Stamp duty is the fees charged by the government and it varies from state to state. Stamp duty is calculated on the basis of market value of the property involved.
After completing above mentioned steps execution of the deed takes place at the sub registrar's office under whose jurisdiction the property comes by signing or thumb impressions of the parties involved on the deed.
Advantages of Property Registration
Application for the mutation of the Title Deed:
Meaning of mutation is change in ownership of the title from one person to another.Due to mutation the new owner gets the property recorded in his name in the Land Revenue Department. This also enables the government to levy property tax from the right owner.
City Survey and Land Records Department is the governing authority on application for the mutation. After assessing the request for mutation, City Survey and Land Records Department decides the value of tax on the property and finally issues a letter of mutation in favour of the buyer.
Under Section 80C of the I-T Act, an individual/HUF assessee is eligible to a deduction of stamp duty, registration fee and other expenses for the purpose of acquiring a house. This deduction is from gross total income. The maximum limit of deduction under Section 80C every financial year is Rs 1 lakh.
A Registered Title gives a quick up-to-date official record of who owns the land and individuals do not have to do any research as to the history of the title to the land i.e. what in layman terms is ownership.
A Registered Title is state guaranteed. If you have suffered a loss of an estate of interest in land property information because of a mistake or omission in the register by the Registrar you may be able to get compensation.
Disputes regarding the ownership or rights over the land might be resolved more easily.
Once registered by plan each title is given an official plan of the land, and this can be used to prevent any encroachment by trespass on the boundaries.
