Issuing a public notice before buying house can help avoid disputes
To be a bona fide purchaser of immovable property, a buyer has to prove that he had acted in a prudent manner prior to purchasing the immovable property and has paid the entire consideration, which was agreed upon, to the seller
A homeowner (A) had a self-acquired property. He died in 2005. His wife (B) was made the sole owner though a release deed signed by their three children in 2013. B sold the property to another person (C) in 2016. Now C is trying to sell the property to another individual (D). The question is, how to make sure that A and B have only three surviving children? If it turns out that they had other heirs, can they come forward to sue C or D? Is there any form of legal protection that C or D can seek in order to prevent such disputes from arising?
