If your mother is the sole owner listed on the deed she will only have the right of possession, right to its use, right of way, right to transfer it, and the right to earn rent from the property. An owner can transfer his property by gifting or selling it. A sale deed, or any document through which the ownership rights are transferred, is a document that gives evidence of an individual's ownership of a property. Rights in property can be transferred only on execution and registration of a sale deed in favor of the buyer.

Under the law, any person who owns a property and is competent to contract can transfer it in favor of another. If the owner gives another individual power of attorney (POA), in your case your older brother, that person can sell it under this authority. A POA gives another person the power to act on behalf of the owner. However, if the POA only grants a person the authority to manage the property, he cannot sell it.

Registration in the name of the seller by the person transferring property is crucial for the transfer of clear title in favor of the new owner, which is done after the payment of appropriate stamp duty, as prevalent in the State.
