What is Public Notice? How does it benefit the purchaser?
Though not a statutory requirement, the idea of publishing a notice in a newspaper is to inform the general public that a bona fide purchaser is purchasing the property. The notice invites objections from the interested persons with documentary evidence in support of their claim within a specific period. Even after a public notice is published a person who has any claim to the property does not lose his rights if he does not disclose his rights in response to the public notice.
