Sale agreement of land


A sale agreement has been executed  for specified amount for a piece of land with a buyer in CHENNAI.. The seller has impersonated the lawful owner and has signed the document and registered the sale agreement. The time limit indicated in the sale agreement to convert the agreement to Sale deed  was one year.  We have come to know of the agreement after 10 years and find that the sale deed has not been executed. by getting the Encumberance certificate from the Sub Registrar.

How to cancel the sale agreement at this juncture as the price of the land has increased multifold. We would prefer to settle this amicably without any police intervention as the owner of the land is nearly 80 years old. Could you please advise. Thanks in advance

kindly settle the matter with the actual owner of the property. Any sale agreement that has not been converted into a sale deed is not legally binding on the owner.
