Dear Paramjit,

Lease and sale are two different things. Either you have taken the house on lease which is for a fixed time duration by payment of a deposit to the lessor, or you have purchased it outright from the seller which makes you the legal owner. Now, if you have taken the house on lease, there is no way that you can become the owner, unless and until the lessor has subsequently entered into a separate Agreement for Sale with you to sell the house to you, and you have paid the full consideration price of the house and registered the title of the house in your name by paying the prevailing Stamp Duty. It is immaterial whether the lessor is living or dead, because his legal heirs will automatically acquire the title of the house in their name.
