Buying a home is one of the biggest milestones that every individual seeks to achieve in his/her lifetime. People save their earnings to buy their dream property and when the sum is enough, they make their dream purchase. And when you are investing your life’s savings into buying a home, it is important that you ensure that it is duly registered in your name. This helps in avoiding any type of issues with the legal course of the property. The government has made it very easy for people to register their property either by going to the respective offices or through online portals. However, not everyone finds it easy to get their property duly registered in their name under the registration authority. This write-up sums up the main documents required for getting a property registered and what are the steps that one should follow in order to get it registered without any hassle.

Documents Required
While getting your property registered, there are some documents that you need in hand for quick and easy registration. You will have to submit these documents with the Sub-Registrar of Assurances under whose jurisdiction your property falls. Here is a list of all the documents that you might require in order to get your property registered in India:

  • Photo identity proof like the Voter’s ID card or Adhaar card of the property buyer, seller, and the two witnesses required for registration.
  • Two photographs (passport size) of the property buyer, the earlier owner of the property, and the two accompanying witnesses required for registration.
  • If the buyer is not an individual buyer but a company, the incorporation certificate of the buyer as well as the seller is required
  • Latest and updated property register card of the property which clearly states that the property is not owned or managed by the government of the state or the nation. 
  • A duplicate of the municipal tax bill so that the year of property construction can be deduced
  • A photocopy of the PAN cards of the buyer and the seller of the property
  • In case either of the two parties is representing someone else, a power of authority needs to be submitted proving they have been given the power to take decisions
