Overseas citizens are often found to be in need of Property Management Lawyers to help them in India with land that they have either inherited or purchased. Whether there are issues related to ownership or resolution of some other such matter, people seek legal advice that could help them come up with feasible solutions. Ownership records are not always easy to trace out and often, the registry details have been either lost or not been recorded properly – hence they often feel the need of seeking advice. The single most important requirement is to have the status of the title clearly established through updated documents. In most cases about NRIs, these papers are either lost or have not been updated for a long time, resulting in damage to their property rights in India. In these matters, one has to be prepared that he will be faced with some common challenges.
- Even if all records are now visible online, the documentation is most often insufficient for them to get an in-depth view of their exact share or valuation.
- Online documents obtained are mostly in vernacular languages – understanding and translating them into English is a task in itself.
- The extent of share cannot be fully comprehended through any ownership document available online.
- For residential, commercial and urban the details are mostly not available online and have to be applied for and obtained manually.
- One would have to look for the desired information from the offices of the appropriately concerned authorities under which the registration has been done.
- If a fraud like illegal transfer or an invalid sale or exchange has been committed any time in the past, one needs to apply for the older record to verify how and when that fraud was committed. Such older documents are applied for and obtained through legal experts.
- Sometimes formal applications have to be made through property management lawyers under the Right to Information Act (RTI) to verify the accuracy of the papers.
- Friends and relatives cannot help much and even if they do assist you to procure some information you would still need experts to decipher, interpret and transmit the information in layman’s language.
- Another challenge that one faces in India is that most records have changed addresses and cannot be identified by the older addresses that clients have.
- A common problem is that registered sales deeds which are the primary document of the title are not available either with clients or cannot be found in the archives of the relevant offices or municipal authorities.
- A subsequent sequel to this is to go then through courts to establish Title Declaration.

I would highly recommend Mindsprings to any body from overseas. I heard about NRI Legal Services on Punjab Radio in England, I rang them with in few minutes. Nidhi from NRI Legal Services called me on my mobile, I explained to her that I would like to find if my husband owns any land on his name in Punjab. Nidhi explained to me everything about her company, and I asked her how long would this take. Nidhi said we can get all the documents of the land with in a week. I can not praise Nidhi enough, how quick and fast she carried all this work for me. Even before the money was transferred Nidhi started to search for the land. As I transferred the money into their bank account, after two days I had phone call from Nidhi saying congratulations, we have all the land papers. In few days everything was emailed to me. I am extremely happy with the service provided to me and would highly recommend this service to anybody.
