Hi, Notarized documents will not sufficient, you have to issue a paper publication to that effect that the original documents were lost due to flood.
You can get certified duplicate copy of the registered sale deed document from the sub registrar's office.
If the documents have been reportedly lost in the flood water entered in your house, you can get a certificate to this effect and apply for copy of the registered sale deed document from the concerned registrar's office. Notarised indemnity deed will not help yo to prove your tale.
1) you can obtain certified copy of your sale deed from sub regsitrar office .
2)mere notarised indemnity would not suffice
1. You should obtain a certified copy of the sale deed from the office of sub-registrar. Without inspecting the copy of the sale deed no prudent prospective buyer will buy the property.
2. A notarized indemnity is not a document of title.
