What is property mutation?
What’s the process? In case of inheritance: You need to write an application and sign a Rs. 100 indemnity bond and submit these to the development authority office.
In addition, you will be required to provide a copy of death certificate, copy of the will, affidavit duly attested by notary and documents proving that property tax have been paid till date.
In case of sale/purchase: You are required to follow the same procedure. Here, the applicant will have to pay a transfer amount also. This differs from one state to another.
In case of sale/purchase through PoA: Here, you are required to provide a copy of the PoA and duly registered receipt of the payment by the sub-registrar, in addition to the above documents.
Final clearance An assessing officer clears the name of the new owner after checking all the documents.
In case the property is to be divided into more than one person, the assessing officer will require the original layout of the entire building.
