The basic requirements of Gift are (1) no consideration shall be involved & (2) the Donee (person taking gift) should accept the gift.

The details pertaining to stamp duty and registration charges can be obtained from the concerned Sub Registrar's Office.

The owner of an immovable property can gift it to a relative or son daughter. A gift is considered valid if it is made voluntarily and without consideration. It is also essential for it to be accepted by the donee.

Drafting the Gift Deed: You can consult an advocate to draft a gift deed for you. The same required the signatures of both the parties in the presence of at least two witnesses.

In Maharashtra there is no stamp duty payable except for Rs. 500/- and Rs. 200/- towards registration charges for transfer of immovable property to blood relations.

Your father can execute a registered gift deed in favor of you both combined, you can consult a document writer in the local who will guide you the procedure to be adopted in this regard.

Procedure To Create Gift Deed

  1. Making Gift Deeds, at the foremost, involves the meeting of clauses recommended by the law, regarding whether or not one can gift a movable or immovable property to a minor, taxation of gift and so on. (more of which will be explored further in the article)
  2. Conventionally, drafting a Gift Deed is done by a legal practitioner, but one way to start doing it right now sitting at home is by using our portal. So begin drafting your document from LegalDesk by clicking the button at the end of this page.
  3. Have the Gift Deed printed on Stamp Paper of suitable denomination and have both the Donor and the Donee sign the document in the presence of two witnesses.
  4. Depending on the nature of the gift one can register the Gift Deed at the closest Sub-Registrar Office.

The stamp duty for gift deed in Maharashtra is 3% of market value of property
