If full payment has been made and no time limit is mentioned in the agreement then its validity do not expire however in case of all other agreements, its validity remains up to 3 years.

An agreement to sell is merely a document to obtain another document, i.e. sale deed and it does not transfer title of property. No person becomes owner of a property by mere execution of agreement to sell in his favour. The Limitation Act, 1963 contains provision for limitation to file a suit to enforce an agreement to sell in Article 54 which provides that limitation period for filing a suit for specific performance of a contract is three years from the date fixed for the performance, or, if no such date is fixed, when the plaintiff has notice that performance is refused.

If time is the essence of the contract, the time for limitation of 3 yers begins to run from the date mentioned in the agreement. If no time prescribed, it is three years from the date of refusal by the purchaser or vendor. In that event time limit of three years runs to begin from the said date of refusal. This may happen after several years have passed after executing the agreement. In onoe A.P. High Court decision the suit was filed after a periof of 26yrs. The suit was held to be in time.
