Immovable property purchase in India is considered to be very complicated affair. Andhra Pradesh is not exception to this. Many people opine that the landed property transaction in India fraught with numerous hurdles and ultimately nobody is sure whether the valid title is conveyed even after taking all possible measures.
The reasons for this state of affairs in India are too many. We lack a perfect title conferring system as existing in Australia and other developed nations. We do not have fool-proof records so as to establish clear flow of ownership and title. Our personal laws do pose many queries regarding ownership over the immovable property. Transfer of Property Act and its ancillary Acts are cumbersome. Registration Act even though gives mechanism to the public to give a “notice to the world”; and all important documents are made compulsorily registrable under the Act, the unregistered documents still exist.
Civil Courts have to accept, as per law, to certain extent these unregistered documents as evidence so as to establish the claims and counterclaims of the litigant public. The revenue records such as adangal and pahani are not maintained properly. The Pattadar Pass Books and Title deeds which shall act as conclusive proof as far as agricultural lands are concerned in the State of Andhra Pradesh are not updated. The bonafide purchasers are facing lot of legal problems and as a result undergoing mental agony to counter the claims of litigant, mischievous and white-collar offenders. The phenomenal escalation of real estate values is compounding the problem. All the above reasons are contributing to many litigations. Clever and cunning litigants are exploiting the innocent and bonafide purchasers by creating litigation.
