Power of attorney to sell a house.

Querist : Anonymous (Querist) 07 June 2018 This query is : Resolved 
Me and my sister have inherited a house (Karnataka) from my father's side. The property is still under the name of my father. We have not changed the joint ownership (khata) to our names. We intend to sell the house now.

Since I will be going abroad very soon, I cannot be present during the entire process of changing the khata and selling the house. For this reason, I intend to give a power of attorney to my sister to do the entire transaction on my behalf too.

My questions are:
1. Is it possible to give such a power of attorney?
2. What are the documents required?
3. What is the format of such a power of attorney?

1. Yes possible.
2&3. You may take help of some local property/ estates dealer or a lawyer to provide you formats of documents or get the job done on your behalf.

Thank you, sir, for your clarification.

A model of Power of Attorney is available at http://www.advocatekhoj.com/library/agreements/powerofattorney/16.php

Registration of a Power of Attorney is not compulsory but it is better to register it. To register it, it should be presented at the sub-registrar's office having jurisdiction over the property referred to in the document.

Notarising a Power of Attorney before a Notary Public is as good as its registration.

Thank you very much Rajasekharan sir. What if the Power of Attorney is registered in another district? The property is in a town which comes under certain district while we live in a city of another district.

The Power of attorney could be registered at the residing place of the Executor and it would be legally valid.
Ms.Usha Kapoor (Expert) 09 June 2018
Another option would be to register it at the place where the immovable property is situated.
