Check if the property you buy has an encumbrance certificate. The encumbrance certificate is evidence that the property you buy is free from any monetary/legal liabilities. It is evidence that the property can be sold as a free title and the ownership will come to you without any associated baggage. You can procure this document from the registration authority’s office.
