Agreement of Sale Cum Irrevocable General power of attorney
In 2002, my father, without our knowledge, made a sale deed with a financer for Rs. 3 lakhs ( now property worth around 70 lakhs) and he fled since then and there are no whereabouts of him. After few years, we got our original property documents back. Now my mother wants to sell the property to pay off his debts.
May I know how she can sell in my father's absence since it's been 12 years already. Is my mother eligible to sell? What's the legal solution? Please help! We will be very thankful if you can give your valuable advice.
