Before purchasing a property is it necessary to give a Public Notice in a newspaper?

- by Ramanan, Vijayanagar

While scrutinizing the documents of the property an eminent advocate well versed in property matters, can trace ninety percent title but may not sometimes be able to trace encumbrances like prior agreement, simple mortgage, court litigation etc with respect to the property. Therefore, to safeguard the interest of the purchaser, it is advisable to give a Public Notice in a leading local newspaper before purchasing the property. It is not binding on any clamant to answer to such notice. However, if any bonafide claimants are there, they will inform about their right, title and interest in the property with documentary proof. Also such notice will inform the public at large that the purchaser is a genuine buyer of the property.


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