• Selling of freehold property

Dear Sir,
    I have a land at A.G.Office housing co-operative society, Patna. Previously it was on lease but few years ago i made it freehold. Now I have absolute sale deed of the property. but it has been mentioned in the deed that - "the member purchaser shall have no right to sell the property without getting NOC from the society".  

      My query is that after getting absolute sale deed whether i have to take NOC from society or not. Second thing can I sell the property to other person who is not the employee of A G Office. I have seen a Supreme court judgement of Maharashtra, in which it has been written that after getting absolute sell deed there is no need to take any kind of NOC from society and the owner will be have all rights to any use of the property. after getting absolute the property will become his insist-al property and if  no society by-laws will follow

1) if as per terms of allotment of land it is specifically provided that only officers of AG can be members you would have to sell the land to only AG employees 

2) if there is no restriction you are free to sell land to any other person who is not an employee of A G. Office

Once the title has transferred to the buyer and the property is made freehold no embargo can be placed on his right to alienate it. Such a clause restricting the right to property is illegal. You can sell it to anyone you desire. Nobody can force you to sell it only to an employee of AG office.

 Being the Absolute Owner of the property, you are free to sell the property to any person and the buyer need not be an employee of AG' s Office.

Yes you need to take NOC





Second thing can I sell the property to other person who is not the employee of A G Office. I have seen a Supreme court judgement of Maharashtra, in which it has been written that after getting absolute sell deed there is no need to take any kind of NOC from society and the owner will be have all rights to any use of the property.

No doubt the absolute sale deed gives your full power and ownership of the property,  But this NOC if insisted by the new buyer's bank, you may have to run from pillar to post then.

ok sir, but after getting NOC can i sell the property to other person who is not an employee of A G. Office or is it mandatory that the purchaser should must be the employee of A G Office
Once you become an absolute owner you have full powers to transfer it by executing registered document for the purpose and the society need not interfere in general sense.
