I am planning to purchase a property and when I were checking the documents I found that in 1961 the old owner purchased this site under a registered sale deed in the office of Sub Registrar Bangalore South Taluk. The document number mentioned in the sale deed is 3694 but when I asked the present owner he gave me the document number 3894 stating that this is the original document. After checking the document 3894 I found the same property where as document 3694 doesn't not belong to this property. So a clearical mistake has been made in 1961 at the time of registration.
I believe it is not possible to get the document number rectified in sub registrar office in the old sale deed. So what should I do ?
Shall I take affidavit from present owner certified by Notary/sub registrar ?
Or is there anything else I should do ?
What is the legal validity of such affidavit (if it has to be made) signed by Notary Public ?
