What is the procedure to transfer the title my fathers property, who has expired, in my mothers name . Will it attract Stamp duty? do we need to do the registration?
Seeking a clear and detailed response
Subsequent to your father's intestate death, the property devolves equally on all the legal heirs survived by him. If all the legal heirs other than your mother are willing to transfer the property on her name, they can jointly execute a registered release deed relinquishing their rights in her favor, which will subsequently confer the title tot he property on her name. The registered release deed may attract stamp duty and registrations charges accordingly as per the existing rules of the state government.
