When the donee has to give his acceptance of the gift?

- by Seenaiah, Magadi Road

The Transfer of Property Act 1882 stipulates that the acceptance has to be made during the life time of the donor and when the donor is still capable of giving the gift. If the donor dies before acceptance of  the donee the gift becomes void. Similarly, if the donor is dispossessed of the gifted property before acceptance, the gift becomes void. Likewise, if the donor or donee becomes incompetent to contract before acceptance of the gift by the donee, the gift becomes void.


These are all the legal questions answered by Advocate S.Selvakumar in various magazines, in various occasion including realestate reporter monthly.
