• Buying property though GPA


I'm buying a site through GPA (adjudicated by DR for 200/-). The GPA was executed in USA Texas in September 2020 and the adjudication was done in India in November 2020. The GPA is done in favor of the father while daughter is the absolute owner of the site since 1997. Due to Covid situation she's unable to come is what they mentioned I also spoke to her over a call through her father last night.. they seem genuine though.

I've the registration today.. I'm in a dilemma to go ahead or not.. 
Is it safe to buy?
Secondly, what clause should be mentioned in the sale deed to ensure no problem in future

Pls guide me

Well, there is no illegality in buying a property on the basis of a validly executed GPA.

Now whether the adjudication was properly done oly the advocate who sees it can advise.

On the basis of your statements the GPA looks fine.

However get an email from the father that the said GPA was validly notarised in Texas and has not bee revoked by him in the meanwhile.

It's practical approach, need not to worry go ahead. Secondly, go through the draft contents of the sale deed thoroughly and you will get the answer to your query.

From your contents it can be observed that the sale execution by the GPA Holder seems to be a genuine and legally valid transaction.

The important clause is that there should be a mention that the execution of sale deed is done by the power holder.

Whatever, it is always advisable to obtain a legal opinion about the property now proposed to purchase, you can proceed after the lawyer recommends the purchase in his opinion.

If the gpa is registered and gave the daughter powers to do so then you can. It also needs to be attested in Indian embassy in US. You can execute  an indemnity bond with her for the same or add the clause

Ideally sale of any property through GPA is not considered valid. It only gives right to the GPA holder to conduct the further sale of the property.

Dear Sir,

It must be signed by authorized Government Agency of Foreign Country and get it notarized in India or otherwise legalize the GPA in the office of Sub-Registrar.

no it is not safe to buy. ask them to appoint the attorney here and you buy the property from the attorney and get the sale deed registered. Take the possession of the property before handing over the amount.
