It is advisable to get a patta. However, the probate shall be a conclusive proof of a legally admissible title.

Dear Sir,

Without such title deed if purchaser ready to purchase then you can sell. Secondly the registering authorities may also raise objections. Hence probate proceedings are necessary to get clear orders and to get necessary patta.

Patta is a must, as it is the main document for establishing lawful possession. Even in case of properties with buildings and structures, Patta is the primary document to establish lawful possession. It also includes other vital details including the extent of holdings and the measurements of the property.

The concerned officer may hold an enquiry or conduct a survey of the land/property before granting the Patta..
