My brother and I had jointly purchased a property five years ago. My contribution towards the consideration of the property was more than my brother. Now I wish to seek partition of the property and would like to know how the extent of our individual share in the property will be determined.
– Manav Mehta In the event the sale deed of the said property does not specify the extent of share of owner, interest/ share of each owner will be equivalent to the extent of his/her contribution towards purchasing the immoveable property. Since you have contributed more towards the property, your share will be proportionate to the contribution made by you for purchasing the said property.
The physical boundaries of my property fall under the jurisdiction of two districts. As I am planning to sell this property, which district should I register the sale deed?
– Gautam Bhandari Since your property falls under the jurisdiction of more than one district, you may register the sale deed at the sub-registrar’s office of either district.
I am 80 years of age and have executed a will but have not yet registered the same. I wish to know if registration of the will is compulsory. I also wish to know if the will can be registered after my demise.
– Rajesh Yadav Registration of will is not compulsory at present. After your death any person claiming to be executor to your will or beneficiary to your will may present it to the registrar or subregistrar for registration as per the provision of the Registration Act.
