In Kerala, all documents related to the Transfer of any type, Gift or Lease (exceeding one year lease) of immovable properties are mandatory requirements to be registered under the Indian Registration Act 1908.
A document for the purpose of registration has to be prepared by a competent person (lawyer or licensed document writer) along with the supporting documents and has to be produced before the Sub-Registrar (The competent authority) for Registration.
Document has to be prepared in the stamp paper of sufficient value in par with the value of the property being transferred.
The person who is transferring the property has to be physically present before the Sub- Registrar at the time of Registration. The registration fee payable to the government in addition to the stamp duty also has to be remitted at the Sub-Registrar office.
The proper valuation of the land is highly necessary as the requisite stamp duty payment is condition precedent for registration. Inadequate stamp duty payment can be a reason for refusal of registration by the Sub-Registrar.
Properly drafted documents and updated knowledge of administrative orders are high requisite for hassle free registration process.
