We are residents of mumbai city.
in the year 2008, we had purchased a flat in Daman (U.T) from a person who happened to be a property dealer (agent).
the building was newly built in 2007 and as per the dealer the flat was owned by a person in South Africa, so registration was not possible at that time, and the dealer had the power of attorney of the flat. It was agreed that the registration will be done as soon as the owner comes to India (he was suppose to come back in some months)
Later when we tried to contact the dealer several times, he is only making false promises and giving dates and false reasons.
there was no issue in the possesion of the flat, he kept his word and handed over the keys as soon as the agreed amount was paid. the entire amount was paid by cheque obviously the money was white.
Now, i got to know that the flat was not registered on any one's name since it was built. so the flat is in the name of builder.
It has been 5 years we are contacting the dealer to register the flat on My name but he wont answer.
What i want to know is...
1) what legal action can i take against the dealer ?
2) what is the process i can register the flat in my name ?
3) can i directly contact the builder and ask him to help me ?
