Sir A stamp vendor issued Rs. 20 stamp paper to a person. That person gave me an agreement on that paper reg a lease of my small building. In the stamp paper there is Stamp vendor name address seal licence No. date of issue sl. No of the paper n party name etc. After due verification of the genuines of the stamp paper with district registration officer he hasgiven me information n monthly sale details of the stamp vendor. I come to know from this that the stamp paper has not issued in the name of to the person sold to. The stamp vendor himself accepted In his monthly statement of sales details . For ex. SV showed the stamp paper as sl. No. 985. But In his monthly return he himself states that he has sold to buyers from sl. No. 644 to 856. I request the experts to take precautionay steps should I take action now itself against the stamp vendor n the agreement given person. Kindly advice Sir

in my view as the stamp paper contains the details of the party to whom it is sold and other particulars, u are not concerned with other facts. As a bonafide purchaser without notice u are protected . However u may ask the vendor for clarification in writing and decide further action. Worst come worst you may have to get a fresh lease deed executed on a valid stamp paper.
