When dealing with sale or purchase of properties, one cannot afford to miss any property related title document such as Sale Deed, Power of Attorney, Conveyance Deed, Agreement to Sell, etc.. When any of the property documents are missing, selling the property becomes a very difficult task.
In such cases, getting a duplicate copy of the lost property papers is the only way out to solve the problem. The certified copy will act as a substitute for the Original Property Papers. You can also obtain an Encumbrance Certificate to ensure that the lost property papers have not been misused by anyone.
It is possible that the original title deed might have been handed over to a person with the intention of having it mortagaged / used as a security for obtaining loan from a bank or for some other transaction such as a sale etc. The original title deed may have been stolen or might have fallen into the wrong hands and, thus, there would be the possibility of a fraudulent transaction being effected by making use of the original title deed. In all these cases, it is the subsequent buyer or purchaser who will suffer. You must obtain an Encumbrance Certificate to ensure that the lost property papers have not been misused.
Parties also need certified copies in case of property related disputes / suits that are pending before the court. Certified true copies can be used as evidence for proving the contents of the document when the other party is not presenting the original property documents in the Court. Usually, the public is notified through a newspaper of the loss of the original title deeds and claims are invited within a specified period.
Thereafter, if there are no claims within the specified period, the advocate issues a certificate to this effect. If the deed is a registered document, then a certified copy of the same can be obtained from the office of the Sub Registrar. The follwing details are required for getting the copy : Name of Parties, Date of Registration, Document Number, Book No., Volume No., Page Numbers etc. If these particulars are missing / not available, it is quite difficult to trace the documents and get the certified copy. In such cases, the parties will have to engage the services of professionals who can search and trace the documents.
Generally it is easier to obtain the Certified copies of Book 1 Documents such as Sale Deed, Agreement to Sell, Gift Deed, Conveyance Deed. However, it very difficult to obtain the copies of documents like Will and Power of Attorney because the same are available only to the parties to the document during their life time and to their legal heirs after the death of the party / testator.
Our firm has expertise in Searching and getting the Certified Copy of all property documents registered in the Sub Registrar Office in case of loss, theft, misplacement etc.
