Legal Question in Real Estate Law in India

Consent Witness.

Dear Sir/Madam:

Subject: Consent Witness.

There is a property which is

ancestral. Father is not there

anymore. Legal heirs are myself,

mother, brother and sister. Mother

and brother want sister to sign as a

consenting witness and not as a

vendor as they have spoken to her to

give money at a later date. But, the

purchaser is saying that sister signing

as a consenting witness is not

possible because tomorrow she may

create some problem. Is it possible

to create some problem after signing

as a consenting witness? And, if so,

what is the solution?

Re: Consent Witness.

What is meant by consenting witness? There is no such terminology used under the T.P. Act or Registration Act.

Re: Consent Witness.

There is no such in law as a "consenting witness". The purchaser is right. She may need to sign as one of the vendors; better to settle her share at this stage and make her also as a vendor.
