Who can sign as witness to a document? What is meant by Identification of sale deed? 

- by Thangappan, K.R.Puram

Any person, above 18 years of age and not a party to the document may sign the document as a witness. While registering a sale deed, it is necessary to identify the persons executing the deed.  Therefore, a person known to the executant shall be present at the time of registration of sale deed and identify the executant who shall also sign the sale deed as Identifier. In the absence of such identification, the  registering officer shall refuse to register the sale deed.


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