Freehold properties under pre-purchase-documentation process

Assets that are not owned by RAJUK or others are primarily called freehold properties. Since there is no direct authority for such properties, we review the documents carefully and under governmental regulations and instructions.

Registration copy

Although the survey record will provide you with updated details, the Registration Document will validate any claims on the land. Two copies are provided for this document, one for the name bearer and the other for the registry office. Do not worry about authenticity, we will visit the Registration Office and confirm.



The mutation is another official pre-purchase-documentation process. The record in this documents show a successful completion of the registration and recognition of the registry office. Cases may be that the property is registered but is in the process of mutation. Yeah, if the asset has a legitimate license, you need not be worried about authenticity. We will wait until we have a mutation certificate before you accept the transaction.
