If the court gets satisfied that the defendant is going to sell the suit property or the defendant is leaving the territorial jurisdiction of the Indian court of law or induldging in any other practicesas proided for in CPC to frustarte the claim of the plaintiff whereby the whole suit may get infractuous , the court may pass oredr of attchment before the judgement. Howeer this power of the civil court is very sparingly used and hence definitely valid in right circumstances or if it is within the mandates of CPC.

Dear Srikanth, mere entering in to agreement of sale does not confer titile to the purchaser, u need not to worry about it, property can be attached, if necessary you implead the purchaser as a party to the case.

Once third party rights are created before any order of the court for attachment the further legal course is very tough and lengthy. How third party is responsible , the burden of proof will be on you till that even any attachment issued will be set aside.
