I am taking a apartment in Bangalore. My father's name and my name are mentioned in the sale agreement. Also, my father is helping financially in this regard. He has already passed few cheques which I have given to seller and mentioned in the sale agreement.
He stays in a different a state and can't come to Bangalore for any of the formalities of purchase and loan.
Now, we want to cancel the previous sale agreement and frame a new sale agreement where only my name will be included.
The seller wants my father's signature as a consenting witness in the new sale agreement.
Now the question is:
If father is a consenting witness, does he need to be there during sale deed/registration or while applying for home loan?
Does he has any legal rights over the property?
