• Can GPA holder execute a sale deed

Hi, I am interested in buying an apartment in Gurgaon. The owner lives out of India & can not travel to India owing to the pandemic to execute the sale deed. The owner has granted his brother the GPA. Can the GPA execute a sale deed? I will be registering the apartment in my name & paying the required stamp duty etc to the government.

Yes. GPA should contain the purpose of signing sale deed and it should be authenticated by notary or registered first. 

POA holder then can appear before the Registrar and execute the sale deed on behalf of the owner.

Go for a Special Power Attorney solely for the purposes of execution of the sale deed. There are lots of frauds happening on the basis of GPA sales.

The GPA deed if is executed by a registered document and also clearly authorises the power agent  by its principal to sell the schedule of property as mentioned in the GPA deed, then the power agent can very well proceed with the execution of the registered sale deed in favor of the buyer provided the power agent is producing a life certificate of the principal attached to the general power of attorney deed.

Whatever worth it may be, you better obtain a legal opinion before venturing into the purchase of this property.
