I want to buy a plot in New Town Kolkata. These plots were initially sold by state government organization called HIDCO and now being resold. I would like to what documents/papers to look for and how to know that the property does not have any dispute and I will not have any legal problem after buying it?
Asked in Property Law from Kolkata, West Bengal
enquire about ownership and see chain of documents
Advocate, New Delhi
There are dozens of documents which are to be vetted before buying a property. Failure to vet even a single document may mean a long drawn legal battle to prove the ownership. Contact a lawyer personally and let him give a title clearance report to you.
HI, You can contact local advocate.
You may contact Mr.Minansu Bhadra as he practices at Kolkata.
check whether seller has original documents of property . whether property taxes and other dues have been paid by seller ? whether society maintenance dues have been paid ? whether prior permission of HIDCO is necessary for sale of property / whether there is any lock in period wherein property cannot be sold ?
obtain certificate from local lawyer that title is clear and marketable . then only purchase the property
