Various Types Of Property Ownership

Property ownership can be private, collective, or common, with a legal determination determining who has the “bundle of rights” and responsibilities over the property. Ownership is said to be ego, which means that property owner has the legal right to the financial advantages of that property.

Personal Ownership

This type of ownership entails the property being entitled to a single name, with no additional owners. When an individual owner dies, the property typically goes through estate to be allowed to pass on to those named as inheritance of the title.

Joint Ownership

Joint Tenancy: All owners have an equal right of ownership, and it could not be sold or mortgaged unless all owners agree. Whenever one of the legal owner dies, no need for probate; ownership easily goes to the surviving owners.

Tenancy By The Majority: A kind of of joint ownership between two people, typically a husband and wife. When one dies, ownership automatically moves to the other without the need for probate.

Common Tenancy: Each individual ‘tenant in common’ owns a certain percentage of the property ownership. Each ‘tenant in common’ has the right to withdraw, mortgage, or sell their portion of the property.

Contractual Obligations: This is a situation in which an individual owns property through headline by contract. This can include things like being payable on death, transferring on death, holding in believe for, life land holdings, and so on.

The Property Ownership Checking Process

Collect Information: All relevant details about the property ownership should be gathered. The plot (dag) number, khatian number, present proprietor, and holding address are all critical. It may be impossible to check the data of the property in question without this information.

Find Out The Property History: The buyer should then look into the property’s history. A primary concept should be gained from the current owner and locals. This history must be cross-checked against the property’s relevant documents.

Authenticity Of The Title Deed: The first and most important step in examining property documents is to verify the authenticity of the title deed(s). This can be achieved by implementing a search in the appropriate Sub Registry Office. A certificate of the deed can also be obtained by paying a small govt fee to the Sub Registrar.

Check The Khatian: Khatian or Porcha can be found in local land office and the Dc Office. All relevant documents should be certified and checked. The owner’s name should be cross-checked against the history supplied in the deeds. If there really is a discrepancy, it should be explained properly.

Confirm The Mutation Khatian: If the name of the current owner does not appear in the most recent Khatian/Porcha, his/her name must be mutated in the place of the old holder in the Khatian/Porcha. In mutation, three documents should be included:

i) a mutation proposal letter.
ii) Carbon Rashid Duplicate (DCR).
iii) Mutation Khatian.

Without Mutation, no one can transfer property ownership to another person.
