Best Land Dispute Lawyers

Land Dispute Lawyers

A “land dispute” usually involves more than one conflicting claims to the right in a particular land by 2 or more than 2 parties, which are focused on that particular land; and that could be addressed within the existing legal framework. Indian Constitution originally provides the right to property (that includes land) under the Articles 19 & 31; wherein, the Article 19 guaranteed that all of the citizens possess the right to acquire, hold & dispose of any property; and the Article 31 stated that no person is deprived of his property save by the authority of law. Nevertheless, these land laws are usually exploited by many illegal possessors and/or squatters for illegally acquiring a piece of land, specifically in cases where NRIs (owners of the property) are involved, and who are not present in India.

Let us see some of the ways by which illegal possession is done by many squatters. There are mainly 2 ways:

  • Illegal possession using fake documents
  • Illegal possession by tenant occupation

Some Ways by Which You Can Protect Your Property from Any Illegal Possession

1. Bona Fide documents

  • Deed
  • Mutation
  • Jamabadis
  • Copy of the will(s)
  • Telephone and/or water bills
  • Original purchase agreement(s)

2. Post-Purchase Formalities

  • Firstly, getting all the records of the revenue in your name particularly
  • Then issuing of the public notice about your property acquisition in any local newspaper
  • After that, getting all of the genuine certifications from all revenue & registration offices
  • Finally, paying all the taxes related to those concerned authorities

3. Steps to consider, other than the legal post-purchase formalities

  • Try to always stay in touch with your neighbours of that owned property as they can help you in giving information in case any activities takes place on your property.
  • Try to pay regular visits to your property. If you are an NRI, you can tell someone from your family to go and pay visits to your property or you do so yourself every time you come to the country.
  • You can also build a boundary on your property in case it is on an empty land.
  • If needed, you can even take the assistance of some property management firm like ours that can take care of all your legal property matters
