I have a small query regarding execution of sale deed. I had purchased a commercial office property in Ranchi city during 2002. Recently I observed that in the sale deed only the seller (builder) has signed the documents and I didn’t sign the deed. Further I checked with other people also who had purchased their properties during that time and didn’t find their signature either on the sale deed. In this case, is my sale deed still valid or do I need to get executed another sale deed with my signature on it.
The vendor has conveyed the property to you under the said sale deed. Therefore your signature is immaterial and will not affect your title over the property. Insisting the purchaser’s signature depends upon the rules of the particular state.
