Understanding the Importance and Process of Relinquishment Deeds in Property Transfer

A property may have several heirs. If one of the heirs wishes to relinquish his share or rights in the inherited property, he or she must sign a deed of relinquishment. A deed of relinquishment is valid for joint Hindu property in India. It guarantees that the remaining co-owners have full legal rights to the property.

A relinquishment deed, also known as a relinquishment deed, is a legally binding deed that transfers ownership of a property to another person. It is often used when the co-owner or the legal heir wishes to pass on their share of a property to someone else. Relinquishment deeds are voluntary deeds that are typically executed when both parties agree to the transfer. The person who is giving up the property is required to sign the deed and have two witnesses sign it. The deed is then recorded with the relevant authority.

A relinquishment deed is a legal document that is used to transfer ownership of property from one person to another. It is often used when the co-owner(s) or the legal heir(s) wishes to pass on their share of a property to another person. A relinquishment deed helps to prevent disputes over who owns the property. It also makes sure that the transfer takes place with the agreement of all parties. A relinquishment deed can also be used as a piece of evidence in the event of a legal dispute.

You will need to bring the original, photocopy of your identity, address proof, and passport-size photos with you when you visit the Sub-register’s office.

Once you have registered your relinquishment deed, you will be able to collect it from the Sub-regulator’s office within one week.

When is it necessary to make the relinquishment deed? 

1. Die without a Will: If you die without a Will in an interstate death, you may need the relinquishment deed to transfer ownership of your property. It can also help you determine which legal heir will inherit which part of your property, who will take care of property maintenance etc. 

2. Divorce: If you and your spouse want to divorce, you will need a relinquishment to give up your share of your property in the other spouse’s name. 

3. Urgent Need: If one of the co-owners of the property needs to liquidate their share of the property to get urgent cash, they will need to make a relinquishment to do so.

4. Minor legal heir: The legal guardian of the minor legal heir wants to give up the former’s estate to another legal heir after getting approval from the court.
