I gave GPA many years ago to a relative to execute sales deed and register the apartment on my behalf. Could he sell it without my permission in future and collect the proceedings to himself based on the earlier GPA? I have not cancelled that GPA after registration of my flat.
Yes, he can do it, hence immediately, issue notice to him that you have cancelled the GPA deed and it will take effect from the date of receipt of this notice by him and you may endorse a copy of this registered notice to the concerned registrar's office where the property situates with a request to not to entertain any application in this regard from the GPA agent nor to permit him to register any encumbrance in this regard.
To confirm this you may create any encumbrance on this property.
If I lost my original flat registration and sales deed documents, can I get a certified copy from registrar office and use it to execute a gift deed in favor of my mother? What are fees for gift deed if done to family member like mother?
If you have lost the original sale deed document, you have to lodge a complaint with police, get a non-traceable certificate and after following further formalities in this regard, you may apply for certified registration copy of the sale deed and can execute a registered gift deed in favor of your mother.
The stamp duty for this purpose differs from one state to another.
You may enquire the rates applicable in your state in the local SRO's office.
What is the process to do gift deed using a certified copy if I have to do from abroad, who cannot come for a while to India due to personal reasons?
You have to again execute a registered GPA deed in favor of a power agent to perform this act on your behalf.
Can gift deed be done in such a way that my mom cannot sell it later or gift it others and upon her leaving for heavenly abode, I get it back?
No such conditions can be imposed in a gift deed, the deed will be invalid if those conditions are imposed.
I heard anyone can obtain certified copy of registration of apartment of others from registration office(atleast in telangana by giving basic details to identify the document). How as the owner I have that extra privilege to use a certified copy to sell or a gift deed to others if at all possible? How will they verify my identity over others when using certified copy?
It is a fact that anyone can obtain copy of the registered sale deed from registrar's office, but for selling the property with the help of a copy of the registered sale deed, the procedures mentioned in the above lines by me are to be followed to prove your genuineness and authenticate the certified copy.
