Relinquishment Deed

A Father died without a will leaving behind the legal heirs - WIFE / 3 SONS / 2 Daughters / 1 Grandson from one of the SONS. (all are above 18)

Now, The property was divided amicably. The Sons Signed a 'Relinquishment Deed' giving away their share to the Mother(WIFE of the DECEASED) to change the status of the Property from Leasehold to Freehold.

That relinquishment deed had only the WIFE / 3 Sons signatures in person at the registrar's office. Now the Daughters signatures were not there on the DEED rather A NOC for each Daughter was attached.

The relinquishment deed was registered.

My question here is that:

1. Does this relinquishment deed stand valid? As the Daughters were not present in person and they too are the legal heirs

2. How can the Daughters get this Relinquishment Deed Cancelled as they were not present in Person? Can they challenge the NOC? if yes, Then What procedure should be followed?

yes ... 1. Not valid. their present in person is required or they could have signed their NOC before any Notary Public or FCJM on oath. If they are abroad they could have put their signature in presence of Notary Public of respective country of before High Commission of India.

2. Simply they have to file civil suit for cancellation of entire process. Entiry process is null and void.

File Civil Suit before appropriate civil Court having jurisdiction and pray for relief for cancellation of entire process of Deed and Deed itself.

The Daughters had signed the NOC's but not in front of any notary or anything, they signed it at home.

I think the Sons after getting the NOC on paper have got it stamped by the Notary by Bribing them. But the daughters never signed it in front of any authority. So is there a way out of it?

is there a difference in Signing in front of Notary Public under oath and just a Notary Stamp?

Dear Student : Guitar Boy - why do not you give your right name???

NOC must be bearing stamp of notary that BEFORE ME so no body can challenge it. Only for that we have to file complaint before Civil Court for declaration of NOC as null and void and Notary can be assked to identify them in Court Room - taking his deposition in witness box being recorded by FCJM  - it is lengthy procedure which may entail license of notary. Though they have been subsequently stamped and signed at home they are to be considered as valid. For solemn affirmation, powers of notary public are equal to FCJM hence they are all valid.

Prepare relinquish Deed on Rs. 100/- Stamp Paper and present it before Registrar of Assurances for Registration with Registration Fee which varies from state to state but it would nearly between Rs. 100/- to 250/-. Procedure is very simple or else you can go for notarized Deed. Pl do not forget to signatures of two witnesses on it. Paste your photograph on last of signature. Yes if you know drafting properly using all legal terminology you need go to advocate else ask advocate to prepare it - relinshiment is at his/her own will. They should be of irrevocable in nature mentioned in Deed. If challenged only its genuinenness would be required to check up

It is very important to get the relinquishment deed registered. A Notarised relinquishment is not sufficient. For details on how to make a relinquishment deed, you may read
