Clarification on property purchase
Have the following query on property purchase in Bangalore.
*The seller got the property through a gift deed from her father.
*The father has 1 son and 1 daughter.
*Daughter is now the seller and is unmarried . But her brother has not signed the Gift deed given to her as a witness or anywhere else.
*The gift deed was executed 3 yrs ago.
*The father got this property allotted to him from BDA which is the city developing authority 14yrs ago.
*The father and daughter(seller) will come for the property registration.
