• Can a mother sell property registered under her own name

Can a mother sell her own property which was transfered from her husband with registered doc without children's consent who are adult. Will the buyer have any consequences
Asked 2 years ago in Property Law from Bangalore, Karnataka
Hello,
1) The mother can sell the property of it is registered in her name. She does not need to seek the permission from her adult children.

2) The buyer will have to title as the mother it's the true owner of the property after the husband has transferred it to her through a registered deed. Therefore there is no legal impediments or infirmities that will affect the buyer.

1. By which document was the property transferred? Was it through a gift deed or will?

2. If the property has been transferred to her by her husband and the document of transfer is registered then she is the absolute owner of the property. In her capacity as the absolute owner she can sell her property without the consent of her children.

3. She will be able to convey a good title to the seller.

Hi, if the husband transfer the property by way of registered gift deed then it was self acquired property of mother so consent of children or grand children does not arise.

2. But from your narration there is a lack of information in what mode your mother had got the property either by way of gift or will.

Hello,
1) As the children have no share our right in the property, so do the grand children have no stake in the property and the mother is at liberty to dispose of the property at will..

2) As posted earlier she has absolute title and can a perfect sale without fear of any dispute or claim.

A. Since your mother is the absolute owner of the property by virtue of registered Sale deed which was executed by her husband, she can transfer the property without obtaining consent of the children.

B. During her lifetime, her grand children have no right to claim and  question the property.

1. Yes, she can sell the said property legally to anybody she wishes to,

2. Since, she is of advance age, it will be prudent on her part or on the part of the buyer to get a medical practitioner to sign the sale dee as an witness,

3. This is to counter any claim in future that she, being of advance age and not in sound mind, was not aware as to what she was doing for which the said Sale Deed should be cancelled,

4. A doctors witness to te will will automatically give evidence that she was in her full mind and understanding while she had signed the said Sale Deed.
