I am purchasing a site in a private approved layout. The developer is selling the site. On the basis of a registered general power of attorney given by the owner of the land. The developer will register the site in my name. Will this type of transactions suffer from any problems?
If the power of attorney is coupled with consideration, it cannot be revoked. Verify the power of attorney. If it is executed on receipt of consideration, pursuant to an agreement of sale or joint development and if the owner is still alive, there should not be any problem. Generally, such power of attorney will be supported by affidavit of the owner acknowledging the receipt of full considerations and having put the developer in possession of the land. You may get confirmed that the owner is alive.
