This agreement to sell is a very important document in property dealings. It contains the terms and conditions agreed upon between the parties and they are legally bound to follow them.

The clauses that go into a Sale Agreement:

·         Names of the seller and buyer, their age, and residential addresses.

·         Place and date of execution of the agreement.

·         The competence of parties to enter into the said agreement.

·         Rights and liabilities.

·         Documents showing how the seller came to own the property

After the agreement is drawn up, the execution of the Agreement needs to be witnessed by two persons capable of entering into a contract. It is generally advisable to have one person from the purchaser's side and one from the seller's side.

Sale deed creation:

The Sale Deed is the legal document that proves the transfer of ownership of a property in a court of law. It must be drawn up with caution. All details like the name of the road on which the property is located, the name of the present occupant, the survey number of that property, the name of the area where the above property is located, e.g., Revenue village, the name of Taluka, etc must be clearly mentioned.
