All About Transferring a Property

In India, property ownership can be transferred through certain procedures. Alternatives range from a simple sale to a present deed to a relinquishment deed, depending on the circumstances. In this piece, we will look at the top 5 methods for transferring assets in India.

Deed of Gift

Another well-known method of transferring asset custody is by ‘gifting’ the assets the use of a present deed. Gifting assets should be done willingly, according to Section 122 of the Transfer of Property Act of 1882.

Compared to a sale deed, it is a significantly superior strategy because there are no taxes to be paid if the gift is made to spouses and children. However, stamp duty and registration fees must be paid for the changeover to be lawful. Furthermore, this type of transition is irreversible. If a gift to a non-spouse and children exceeds Rs 50,000, the receiver must pay taxes on the amount received.

Deed of Sale

A sale document is the most commonplace way of transferring assets. A character sells an asset to every other character, and a sale agreement is reached between the two parties. Once the sale deed is recorded at the sub-office, the registrar’s possession is transferred to the new owner.

However, if the vendor makes a profit, he must pay capital gains tax. The protecting term taken into account for such a sale is not the date of inheritance, but rather the actual date of purchase of the assets. As a result, while being the most commonplace and easy approach, it isn’t a cost-effective way of transferring assets.


A will can also be used to transfer assets. However, this may be most useful after the life of the man or woman writing the will. The beneficiary of assets through a will is not required to pay any taxes. A will can be revoked or amended in several ways at various points in the character’s life.

Following the death of a man or woman, the successor desires to utilize the involved civil government with the replication of the will, succession certificates, and death certificates to complete the assets transfer procedure.

Deed of Relinquishment

The methods outlined above are useful only when the item in question has a single owner. So, what happens when a property has many owners? And one of the owners wants to transfer their share to every other owner? Such transfers are accomplished through the use of a relinquishment document.

Relinquishment is the transfer of possession rights to a co-owner. The stamp requirement now only applies to the element that is surrendered and no longer to the overall asset worth. Such a switch, like a current deed, is irrevocable.

Deed of Partition

A partition deed is any other method of transferring asset possession from one character to another. It can be used in the situation of jointly held properties. However, this is accomplished to split the assets so that each character’s proportion is specified. It wants to be registered to be strong.
