Hi i have recently purchased an apartment on loan. I recently noticed that there is a spelling mistake in my first name . Instead of "Anantha" , it is typed as "Ananta" . one letter "h" is missing in my first name. will it create problems in future? can i rectify the spelling mistake. Is the builder required to rectify the spelling mistake? Can i ignore such minor spelling mistakes ? Is original sale deed required for rectification ?My original sale deed is with the bank .
Spelling Mistake in your name( in the nature of a single letter missing ) will not affect your title to the property unless there have been any major mistakes w.r.t. your name, fathers name or the details of the property.
So I feel there is no need for having a rectification deed being executed.
Dear Anantha, It is an old and rationl maxim of the law that where the party to a transaction or the subject of a transaction are either of them actually or corporeally present, the calling of either by a wrong name is immaterial; Presenti corporis tollit errorem nominis: Lord Bacon in his maxims fully explains and copiously illustrates this rule of Law and good sense and shows how it applies not only to persons, but to things. Your Sale deed can not be affected for that.
Since you are the owner of the property, your builder cannot be required to rectify the said error. You may not ignore such spelling error no wonder how small it be. Practice of the particular registry where your document is registered shall be the judge as to whether original sale deed is required for rectification or not. Rectification Deed may be executed taking your banker into confidence.

Although missing of one word doesn't matter. But if u think it would create any problem then make a declaration by notary public that anantha and ananta are the same persons. others have also qouted the right answers.
