I am planning to by a 10 year old apartment. When I look at the copy of sale deed provided by the owner, there is a spelling error in his name. His first name is "Sunit" but in sale deed it is mentioned as "Suneet". So instead of "i" there is "ee".
The sale deed is registered 10 years ago. So I need your advice on how to proceed with the same? Is there any way to correct the spelling error after 10 years?
A. Your seller need to approach the previous seller to execute Rectification Deed before the Sub Registrar office. It can be rectified by way of execution of Register Rectification Deed. But both parties must be present.
B. If you want to purchase this property itself, you don't worry about this, you can mention proper owner name in your sale deed. However, you need to cross verifiy whether Mr. Sunith and Mr. Suneeth both are same by verifying the photo copies in the Sale Deed and you can take notarized one affidavit with respect to the same.
