I intend to purchase a authorized residential plot (ghaziabad development authority GDA) . How do I ensure that the plot i buy is fully clean in title and have no legal disputes are going on it? My friend had purchased a plot last year but later found out some family dispute was going on in the plot. Even though my friend had arranged a Property search title report also from an advocate , the title report failed to mention that dispute which was going on. Please let me know all steps i should take inorder to avoid any such issues.

You have to obtain all the previous documents, EC for a period of 30 years, legal opinions are important regarding the property. As you are purchasing from GAD which is an authority (the Chairman/Vice-Chairman is the Government employee), it may not be a problem.

Title search report is incomplete if it does not verify litigation pending against the subject property. It is better to consult and engage another local prudent lawyer for appreciation of facts/ documents, professional advise and necessary proceeding.

Before you are venturing into purchase of an immovable property, you collect the copies of all relevant documents pertaining to the proeprty and obtain a proper legal opinion from a local lawyer. You may proceed only if recommended. The lawyer will conduct all searches for title as well as scrutinize the encumbrance certificates. However the litigation aspect may not reflect in any document hence you may have to enquire about it in the surroundings.
