Dispute over shop

This query is : Resolved 

27 April 2016

My father borrowed 1.25 Lacs in 2003 from a person and kept his shop's registry papers with him and signed an agreement to sell for 1.25 Lacs. After 8 months, he returned the money and the person gave back the shop's registry papers however did not give back the agreement to sell. We sold the shop in 2013.
In 2009, the person from whom my father borrowed money died and now in 2016, his son came to us with that agreement claiming that the shop belongs to him and he'll file a suit.
Please guide.

Let him file the suit, he is just trying to take advantage of your fear and nothing else.

If he does engage an able counsel to defend you.

Did your father pay by cheque/DD and obtain acknowledgment?

Did anyone witness the payment?

It was only an agreement, not sale deed.

From the facts it seems that he has a weak case in his favor, if he proceed, oppose the claim on merits.

The sale agreement reported to have made during the life time of the deceased who died in 2009, is actually barred by limitation as on this date hence his claim is not maintainable.
