Registered sale deed executed by you is valid but would be subject to orders passed in suit filed by legal heirs of original seller

2) you have not committed contempt of court as there is no stay order passed by trial court

1. yes it is valid if there was no stay order from the court and the agreement to sell was made before the filing civil suit.

2. if there is no order restricting transfer then in that case there shall be no court proceedings against you for sale. Further you must have disclosed the fact to the buyer that the property is under litigation as buyer can file a case against you if you concealed fact to him before making registry.

The validity in question will be decided by Court. You can appeal to Appellate court for stay.

a suit for cancellation of the sale deed instituted means that the property title is disputed and hence cannot be sold and resold till the completion of the case when the right title and interest is decided as the matter is sub judice. if you have old the property without telling the buyer that it is disputed you are not a bonafide seller and therefore you could be charged for fraud. in case the buyer goes to the court. if he knows that the property is disputed then his bonafide is not established and hence he would also suffer the same fate as you in case you lose the case

Since the order of injunction was not passed by the civil court you were free to sell the property. However, under Transfer of Property Act any transfer of property made during the pendency of the case is subject to the outcome of the suit. If the court eventually allows the suit then the sale will be illegal. The buyer can then file a suit for recovery of sale consideration from you.

Dear Client,

On what grounds they are challenging the sale deed.

Well, by virtue of registered sale deed, you have clear title. If no court stay on alienation of property or status quo, 2013 deed is valid.

No, if no stay order.

1.Sale deed registered on 2013 is valid or not ?

Answer: Sale Deed can be registered but subject to penalty be paid. As per the provisions of Section 25 of the Registration Act, 1908 if a document is not presented for registration within the prescribed time period of four months, and if in such case the delay in presentation of the document does not exceed a subsequent period of four months, then an application can be made to the Registrar, who may direct that on payment of a fine not exceeding ten times the amount of proper registration fee, such document shall be accepted for registration.

2.there will be any court preceding against me for selling the property?

Answer: If there is stay order against the sale or an injunction order against you then you cannot sell it. If no stay order or an injunction order then neither any person or court can stop you.

Since there was no injunction against the alienation of the proeprty by an order of a court, the sale of proeprty cannot be invalidated.

There will not be any proceeding in the court in this regard
