GPA document lost - property was registered
I bought a Plot in 2007 and got this property registered in joint name of self and spouse . This registration was done by my friend whom I had given the GPA. This GPA document got lost subsequently and i do not have a copy of it in Possession . I have all the relevant papers including the original registered sale deed except the GPA.
I am now trying to sell this plot and available for transfer but the buyer is insisting on the GPA document. Is this document necessary? What options do I have.

3. if the GPA was not registered then such GOA has no value.

1. You and your wife have not become the lawful owners of the land as the GPA was not registered.
2. The GPA requires compulsory registration.
3. No buyer will purchase this land from you as you are not its owner.
4. Now ask the seller to register a fresh sale deed in your favour.
Hi, Now the General Power of Attorney is not required for the purpose of sale transaction as you can sell the property however the purchaser is required that GPA.
2. First you have to lodge a police complaint for lost of the documents and make a paper publication in two daily news paper that you have lost the documents so that is sufficient.
1. Even though its a unregistered GPA, while registering the plot in your name by the GPA holder, a copy of GPA would have been attached to a copy of sale deed executed in 2007 and it will be available in the concerned Sub-Registrar's Office. Try to retrieve a copy from SR's office.
2.This GPA document is not mandatory for the sale of Plot now and if the buyer is very particular of this GPA, you can execute an Affidavit for the same explaining the circumstances.
1) is GPA registered . ?
2) if so you can obtain copies from sub regsitrar office on payment of nominal charges .
3) if GPA is not registered you wont be able to obtain copies from sub regsitrar office .
4) the property has not been sold to you through GPA . only registration of plot in your name was done by GPA .
5) the buyer would want inspection of document as no purchaser likes to take chances in buying any property on account of number of frauds that take place
1)if your friend the agent also does not have the POA your friend can lodge police complaint about loss of GPA
2)execute indemnity bond in favour of purchaser to indemnify him in case any claims are made on basis of GPA
A. If you want to transfer the property through GPA, it must be registered in the eyes of law.
B. In case if any person has made a transaction through unregistered GPA it will be voidable transaction.
C. Once the person delegated the power through the GPA to transfer the right that must be duly stamped and register the same. However, the GPA is not necessary to produce before the Sub Registrar's office at the time of Sale Deed Registration. But the purchaser can compel to produce the required document to ascertain the Vendor's marketable title over the property as per the duty and responsibilities of the Vendor in accordance with the Transfer of Property Act, 1882.
1. Your query is not clear,
2. For what did you give GPA to your friend while registering the property in your and your spouce's name?
3. Do you mean that your friend was the GPA holder of the seller?
4. Was the GPA registered?
5. Unregistered GPA has no value legally.
1. Unregistered GPA has no legal value in the matters of registering conveyance deed,
2. Your conveyance deed can be challenged by the said vendor and in that case it will be difficult for you to defend yourself,
3. Your present customer rightly asked for the copy of the said GPA to find out whether it was registered or not,
4. Get your Title Deed validated first by further entering in to a rectification Deed wherein the owners will replace the unregistered GPA holder.
you should file declaratory suit for declaration that property is registered by your friend under GPA. make your friend, seller & stamp vender as opposite party. stamp vender maintains record of selling of stamp. call him to produce his document/register before court and cross checked. record your friend's statement. if court satisfies upon evidence shall pass order that registration was done by your friend.
this order is binding and has legal value. you can sell your property to any one.
