• Joint property ownership

Me and my wife are joint property owner of an apartment in Chennai. I wish to transfer my joint ownership to my wife whereby she enjoys the sole ownership of the property.

Can I execute settlement deed in favour of my wife by paying appropriate stamp duty as per the state  act? If yes, please provide most acceptable format for executing the settlement deed at the SRO.

You can execute a registered settlement  deed (cost effective) or a registered gift deed in her favor subsequent to which she can mutate the revenue records on her name.

This will entitle her to become an absolute owner of the entire property.

She can hen transfer the EB connections, water supply connections, share certificate of the society, can apply for single member from the associate member of the society after having transferred the property fully on her name. 

For preparation of settlement deed, you may have to engage the services of an advocate on payment of his fee separately for the services you are desiring to avail.
