My parents bought a landlord-owned(pagdhi) property in 2006. We have the tenancy agreement and a copy of the stamp duty receipt. When we went ahead with the registration, the registration office said that they had paused the registration because of collector land issue. In 2012, we got an adjudication of stamp duty done with pending stamp duty as 0. Sometime recently the registration was open but after following up from 2006 to a few years later my father gave up until recently. He was told by a local lawyer that he needs to re-pay the stamp duty and create a new agreement as of the current date. This seems ridiculous as we bought this property 16 years ago. We also have copies of 30000 checks we issued multiple times for the registration fees but we are denied. Now when the registration is open, how do I go about finishing this last step. Do I need to re-pay the stamp duty and create a new tenancy agreement?
