My father bought two adjacent plots (3800 sq ft) in the outskirts of chennai in 1983. He expired 15 years ago leaving behind my mother, sister and myself. Till 2009, I had made several visits to the plots to check whether anything has changed drastically. After a gap of three years, in Oct 2012, I happened to visit my plots and was shocked to see a decent house built in one of our plots. Subsequently, I approached the registrar office and obtained EC. I was again shocked to see that the same plots have been sold to another person on 22/03/2010. In the EC it shows as though my sister and myself have sold the property to the person, i.e Executants as our names and Claimant as the buyer. One more important fact is that, My MOTHER IS STILL ALIVE and with us. The EC does not show my mother's name at all. And moreover, this person has sold the plots to some other person. In all these, the EC shows it as conveyance ua/metro.
The issue is WE HAVE NOT SOLD THE PROPERTY OR SIGNED ANY DOCUMENTS AT ALL AS SHOWN IN THE EC.
Is this a clear case of forgery and impersonation? Is it possible for us to get the land back even though a house has been built and nearing completion. Does the Registrar has the power to cancel the deed?
Please explain in detail the steps to be taken in this regard, so that I can proceed further because we three are the RIGHTFUL OWNERS of the property.
Expecting an early reply from the team of experts
