I am planning to purchase a property (site) in thyagrajnagar Bangalore. The current owner of the property has provided me all the documents upto this date.

Originally this property was purchased by someone in 1961 under a registered sale deed in the office of Sub Registrar Bangalore South Taluk. The document number mentioned in the sale deed was 3694.

When I was checking the documents I found that in the document number mentioned in the sale deed is 3694 but when I asked the present owner he gave me the document number 3894 stating that this is the original document and the document number mentioned in sale deed (3694) is a clearical mistake.

One more level of verification was done by checking both the documents 3694 and 3894 whereas the 3694 which is mentioned in sale deed belongs to some other property in some other area while 3894 (which owner says its the original) belongs to the property I am going to purchase.
So it seems like its a clearical mistake. Now what are the steps I should take ?

It looks like it might not be possible to get the document number rectified in sub registrar office in the original sale deed (correct me if I am wrong). Recitification Deed is one way but the original Owner is not alive and his legal heirs are also not reachable. So what should I do ?

Shall I take affidavit on a stamp paper from present owner certified by Notary/sub registrar ? Will Sub-Registrar certify that affidavit or it will be just the Notary Public.What is the legal validity of such affidavit if its signed by Notary public ?

Is there any legal problem which may arise due to this document number mistake ?

Is there anything else which I should take care of or I should take from either owner or subregistrar which could make sure that no problem arise in future.

  • Hello,

    When I was checking the documents I found that in the document number mentioned in the sale deed is 3694 but when I asked the present owner he gave me the document number 3894 stating that this is the original document and the document number mentioned in sale deed (3694) is a clearical mistake.

    Since it is appeared that its clerical mistake. you will have to approach local revenue officials (sub registrar,tehsildar) & approach them to cross verify it with original documents they possess.If they don't agree then you will have to re register the property (since there is change in schedule of document) & pay the stamp duty accordingly.

    Hope you will "settle" case with revenue officials itself.
