My father had purchased title to Immovable property in 1968. For various reasons he could not manage to mutate the property in his favor. He has since expired.
Likewise his Legal heirs have also been unsuccessful in doing so.
I have obtained the following documents:
- Death certificates of both Father and Mother
ii) Relationship certificate of the children of my father from the village office.
iii) Legal Heir Certificate from the tahasildar (Limit 2 Lakhs only and that in respect of debts Like Govt. dues / Bank Balance etc)
There are offers from serious prospective buyers who are willing to buy the title from us, the legal heirs-without mutation in our favor - At a price far removed from the market price
Q1. Is it possible to effect a transfer of title (without mutation or possession) by executing a sale deed (not agreement) before the Registrar.
Q2. Is Succession certificate necessary for transfer of Immovable Property?
At least one prospective buyer seems to be insisting on it
My understanding is that Succession certificate is for debts and securities. Or is it relevant in the absence of mutation in favor of the sellers (the legal heirs)
Thank you in anticipation
