What about the title of purchasers who have purchased the property from the attorney holder? The main question arises here is that whether the purchaser will hold a clear and marketable title of the property purchased from the registered attorney holder? In the present era, there is a common practice of executing power of attorney between the land owner (principal) and builder (attorney holder) for further sell of property to customer. Shall the customer hold a litigation free title of property purchased from such registered attorney holder? What is the intention of the SC of India? This will impact a huge number of customers who have purchased the land from the registered attorney holder by executing the registered sale deed. Please interpret the judgments of SC of India On this issue. Your valuable advices are awaited.
The persons who have purchased the property from the attorney holders have imperfect title and the transfer is illegal. One cannot obtain clear title by buying from a person having imperfect title.It is true that this will impact a large number of innocent buyers, but the age old principle holds good here 'buyer beware'.
Thank you Mr.Vish for your reply.If the person holds an imperfect title,how is it possible to get the Record of Rights from the concernced tehsil by initiating a mutation case.It is not clear to me.In one way the purchaser of land from attorney holder holds an imperfect title and other way the tehsil provides Record of Rights to the Imperfect title holder.AS we know the holder of ROR is the real owner of the land.
