What Documents Are Required to Purchase An Open Plot in Hyderabad?

In big cities like Hyderabad, open plots are rare. However, you can still find a piece of land of our choice and preference in small towns and the peripheries of cities. It has become a herculean task to buy an open plot or land, especially considering all the malpractices involved, including the creation of fake documents. It is important to do your research and be careful when buying land for your first home. Buyers should make sure that their investment is protected and safe by seeking legal advice from a professional who is an expert in inspecting the records and verifying relevant property details. The Indian real estate industry often evades the laws. Before buying land, it is important to thoroughly examine the following factors and have them reviewed by a lawyer.

The following documents must be provided by the seller in order to purchase land:

  • Original Land Deed, also known as the 7/12 Document, of the current owner. Also, the previous owners with proper names on the title.
  • A Sub-registrar’s Office Encumbrance Certificate for the past 30 years.
  • The bank will issue a release certificate certifying that the loan has been fully repaid.
  • Original receipt for property tax and any other bills related to the plot.
  • Receipt after payment of stamp duty fees: You can now get your land registered at the sub-registrar’s or have your name added to the village office records.


Below is a list of the essential building documents required for the purchase of an open plot. The following documents are required by the buyer:

Title deed:

You can impose a transparent title to purchase land if you desire undisputed legal possession. It doesn’t matter if it’s residential, commercial, or investment land, you need to verify that there aren’t any unclear deeds. This agreement ensures that the seller is legally free to sell the house. Do not take a duplicate of the deed. Instead, review the original title deed. Take the help of a professional /  lawyer who is dealt with these. The seller must own the property, and next, confirm that the seller is the sole owner and has full sales rights. This can be checked by looking for the title on the state government’s website. Always consult your lawyer. This document is also called the 7/12 document. It is necessary to ask for the original sale deeds and any other ownership proofs. You should verify that the seller is the owner of the deed title and that he has full rights to sell it. It is important to see the original, not a photocopy. After the sale of an open plot, the Title Deed must be signed by a government-licensed Document Writer.

Certificate of Encumbrance:

An encumbrance certification is required for property transfers to prove ownership/free title, as well as for applications for home loans. The sub-registrar issues this certificate for a specific period. The record of the sub-registrar is also based upon the registered property records. The certification will not include any document that was not recorded at the office of a sub-recorder. The encumbrance certificate covers a specific time period and does not apply to the preceding or post-reported periods. You can obtain this document from the office of the sub-registrar where the deed was registered. This document declares that there are no legal problems or unpaid fees on the land.

NA Order:

Unless otherwise specified by the government, all lands and open plots in India will be considered “AGRICULTURE Property”. Agriland can be used for Agri purposes. However, if you wish to use Agriland for other purposes, you will need to first convert it into NA land (commonly known as NA). However, not all NA land can be used to develop residential properties. There are many types of NAs, including:

NA – Warehouses, NA – IT, NA – Residential, NA – Commercial, NA – Resort, You should therefore check for “NA – Residential” only.


Power of Attorney

The seller should request a Power of Attorney (POA) if the landowner is an NRI. A power of attorney (POA or letter of authority) is a legal document that allows you to appoint someone or an organization to manage your property and medical affairs as well as finances in your absence. The principal, donor, or grantor is the person who authorizes another to act for him/her. The agent is the one who has been authorized to act. The POA can grant the agent limited or extensive authority to make decisions regarding property, financial affairs, and medical matters.

Bills Related Property Tax and Approval Document from Local Authority:

Finally, make sure all permits required by the local authority have been obtained for your open plot before you make the purchase. You should also check any tax bills paid by the previous property owner. Check whether all the bills are clear or not or if any bill or any payments are due, check thoroughly for the receipts of the bill payments made thus. You should request the originals and confirm that all payments were made. This could cause legal problems and increase future expenditures if the receipts and bills are missing. You should also ensure that all loans are paid off with a release certificate from the bank. Also, get the property appraised for the exact measure.


Local Body Approvals

These approvals are an essential part of the process. You must verify that the local authorities have given the permission on paper, along with all the paperwork done, and “go ahead” signal to the open plots. You should verify the required approval documents and have them verified by a lawyer. If you are looking to purchase property in Hyderabad or sell your existing property, make sure to check for Layout Permit numbers and layouts approved by HMDA / DTCP. Using LP numbers, we can view land details on the HMDA site. You can also check for RERA certification or DTCP registration. Make sure the open plot is DTCP-approved, RERA-certified, and HMDA-approved. Check for LRS (Layout Regularization Scheme) & for building BRS (Building Regularization Scheme) documents that are mandatory for Gram Panchayat Layout if your open plot falls under that jurisdiction)



To avoid fraud, it is important to understand the urban reality and land registration status. To request a simple note and verify the identity of your seller, you must visit the Property Registry. You should ensure that you have all the necessary services available, especially if you are planning to build a home. You must ensure that the land is in a good location, with all amenities and comfortable facilities. Avoid purchasing a property that is not suitable for your needs. You must ensure that there are no lines on the property or pending mortgages. This can cause problems in the future. It is important to check in advance for any problems with special permits that may be required in certain areas.
