Document evidencing the partition has to be compulsorily registered
The house in which I stay is jointly registered (1932) in the names of my great grandfathers (A and B). According to an unregistered partition deed made between them in 1962, the property in question was to go to A. The list was signed by A and B and their class I heirs. It was also decided by A and his heirs that his eldest son (my grandfather, C) will get the house. C is survived by his wife, three sons (D, E and F) and a daughter. C’s family has decided to equally divide the property among D, E and F. They have been living here since 1985. Is the unregistered partition deed of 1962 valid? If so, all the class I heirs of A have to sign the new partition deed? The property is in Ranchi, Jharkhand.
