Sale Agreement is Valid in front of notary officer ?


If the sale agreement is registered with the notary, is it valid or is it required to be registered with the sub-registrar?

Good evening, If the sale agreement is for immovable property, then you will have to get it registered in order for it to be valid. Section 17 of Registration Act 1908 states that every document that has details about property transfer MUST be registered, and so just a notarised, or unregistered sale agreement can't be considered as evidence to sell or claim property.

Agreement to sell is not compulsorily be registered, notarised agreement is valid and legal document, which can be admitted in evidence. I respectfully differ with Mr. Nandini Warrier.
