Sale deed cancellation


i am about to buy a home in chennai.owner was given all documents for verification, As per his document everthing is fine.

But in EC we found there was sale deed cancellation in 2007.i have a doubt in that.

is the sub registarer or registarer can cancel the sale deed.

else only court can issue the sale deed cancellation.

Hi Nithya,

You are at the right juncture; verification is the best part you have gone through. Yes, any transaction over the property reflects in Encumbrance Certificate. Its better you clarify with an Advocate.

Registrar or Sub-Registrar has no right at Law to cancel any deed, it’s the jurisdictional Court passes order for the same on full trial of a case.

You can even refer with records in Sub-Registrar’s office as to what is the follow-on of such Sale Deed Cancellation.

a court has only the power to cancel any registered document through which the title of ownership has been transferred from one person to another except the exceptional circumctances.

its wholly depends upon the notification of your ld high court whom they had made powered in this concerned.
