Agreement for sale




I am planning to buy a flat in Bangalore. Can any one tell me what should be the Stamp Duty(value of the stamp paper to be used) for Agreement of Sale? The property has not been regietered yet. Post signing of the Agreement for Sale document, Sale deed and Deed of Assignment will heppen. 
Again, whether this document(Agreement for Sale) should be registered with the Registrar?
It would be great if anyone could reply to this at the earliest.

Hi George,

No need to register the sale of agreement with the registrar.

The stamp duty for each state varies and hence the suggestion to consult the stamp duty act of Karnataka or any stamp duty agent who you believe can be handy.

However, sometimes the registration becomes necessary as and when the need to cross check your property arises by the concerned authority. Therefore, as entioned by Nadeem bhai, it is also advisable to have your Agreement of sale registered.

Registration is always good in case of immovable property, as rightly advised by Mr. Nadeem Qureshi.
