Q: What is the procedure of incorporating in the original share certificate, the name of the flat owner who purchased the flat recently in resale, by obtaining home loan from a Bank? As you must be aware the original share certificate is deposited with the Bank right at the time of loan disbursement and it remains in its custody till full and final repayment of the home loan. Also the addition of the flat owner's name to the society happens at a much later date. After that happens, what is the procedure for the above mentioned purpose?
Is a request letter on the society's letterhead and signed by the secretary required to be submitted to the bank, for providing the share certificate to the society for a temporary duration, for including the name of the new flat owner in it?
My home loan bank is demanding such a letter while our society says it cannot issue any such a letter, claiming it is the matter between me and the bank and that I should send such a request letter myself to the bank to make the share certificate temporarily available to the society. Please advise what is the legally valid
process. A: Your CHS's Office bearers should go to Bank's loan department with CHS's rectangular seal and round seal, transfer the said share certificate in the bank's custody, and take bank certified copy of such a transferred certificate for CHS's record, with a bank's letter stating that such CHS's share certificate is in the custody of Bank's loan department, for home loan given to such a person. To and fro transport charges from bank to CHS, by signatories on the share certificate has to be borne by the Society's flat lodger, who has mortgaged said share certificate to that Bank.
