Hello, I intend to sell a piece of land in Bangalore, it is owned jointly by me and my wife, is it necessary that both of us be physically present at the sub-registrar office at the time of sale registration ? Is it not sufficient if one of us give the POA to the other and the only the other person be physically present at the time of registration, also I gather that my daughter is also required to be present then, appreciate your advise on this. Many thanks
For selling the jointly held property, both the owners are required to be present before the concerned registrar's office to sign and execute the document to be registered, before the registrar.
The co-owner can sell the property by him/herself provided he/she is empowered by the other owner through a registered power of attorney deed for the purpose.
If the other owner has to execute a registered power of attorney deed in favor of the other owner, he/he has to visit the registrar's office to get the said document registered, so instead of wasting time, money and energy for preparing a GPA separately, your wife can accompany you to the registrar's office to execute the proposed registered sale deed.
Your daughter need not sign the papers.
