Specific performance


I have purchased a property 5 years back in rajasthan. That time me and seller did an agreement on 100rs stamp stating that he has received full payment and will register land in my name within two months. But soon after he was arrested in several criminal cases and is in jail till date. I am planning to file suit for specific performance against him. My queries are:- 1. Can an unregistered agreement be ground for specific performance. 2. Can a suit for specific performance can be decided ex party or if the culprit is in jail?

1. Yes, an unregistered agreement can be a ground for specific performance.

2. A suit can be filed against a convict in jail. And why exparty? A convict can appear in the court through his advocate and defend himself.

I think suit for specific performance cannot be filed on the basis of unregistered Agreement to Sale in Rajsthan. Please check with some local lawyer.
