Property Price: It is the bare minimum price of the land that is estimated by the government of the state. Stamp duty will be some percent of the sellable worth of the parcel. The fee for registration will be some percent of the value that can be sold. The saleable value of a property is the product of the property size and the guideline value.  Senior citizens and women are eligible for discounted registration fees and taxes in certain states.

The seller must be in agreement for the sale of their home and the ownership documents must be signed by the names of the seller that will be provided by the department responsible for revenue records.

  • Changes in Ownership: This is the most complicated procedure that must be carried out with the help of an experienced lawyer. After the registration, the buyer has to alter that title into his own name, thereby allowing him to function to be the owner and taxpayer of the land. To do this it is necessary to submit the mutation along with an Affidavit, and a replica of your sale agreement in the office of the registrar. After you submit your request the tax due on your property will be calculated and a letter of mutation is issued to the buyer.
