Just like land verification in real estate investment business, it is vital to go through a thorough property ownership verification as well. Conducting ownership check will eventually clear out any doubts, hitches and issues during land and property ownership transfer process in Bangladesh.

Steps of property ownership verification

  • Firstly, all relevant property-related data, especially, the plot (dag) number, Khatiyan number, information of the present owner, holding address, has to be collected. It would not be possible to check the records of the property in the first place without these primary documents.
  • Next comes the checking of the genuineness of the title deed. Property document verification is significantly important. This can be achieved by conducting a search at the Sub Registry Office in question. Both recorded deeds have a record of the original deed at the registry office of the sub-registry in which they are registered.
  • A certified copy of the deed has to be obtained by paying a small number of state fees to the Sub Registrar. The deed of the predecessor and the Partition Deed (Bonton nama) (if any) should be verified in case the property is inherited.
