Can only one NRI owner who is visiting India sell the property of his own? Is he required to have POA from the co-owner (spouse)?


Yes, Require to have POA from co-owner (spouse)

We have been through the same experience that sub-registrar will not allow the property registration without the presence of actual co-owner.

Get the POA executed from the country where your spouse live now. Its quite simple and easy to execute a POA in foreign country for a property registration in India. Follow the below procedure to execute the POA

  • Prepare a POA draft in word format

  • Print the draft on normal A4 size paper

  • Get the POA attested from Indian consulate or notary public in country of your spouse resident

  • Get the POA adjudicated in District registrar office in India

This completes the procedure to execute POA in foreign country for a property registration in India.

Below is the real example that we faced the similar situation recently

My client Dr Vidya Sagar and his wife lives in UK. Both jointly owns a property in Bangalore. Dr Vidya Sagar and his wife wants to sell the property and we found the buyer for a property.

Dr Vidya Sagar travelled to India for property registration and his wife didn’t come to India due to covid-19 constrain.

The sub-registrar office denied to register the property without the presence of co-owner, so we decided to obtain the POA from his wife, who lives in UK.

We obtained the POA and below POA image for your reference. We registered the property using this POA.
