Important Things To Consider When Transferring Property In Bahria Town

You must consider the following important things when transferring property:

The Buyer and Seller Must Be Present

It is a must that the seller is present on the spot at the time of the transfer, however, the rules for the buyer vary. If he can’t come to the transfer himself, the buyer may ask his representative to simply turn up at the transfer with a valid Authority Letter printed on Rs.20 stamp paper. The Authority Letter may be rendered on a plain paper if the buyer is abroad and should be checked by the Pakistan Embassy later.

Application Form Regarding Transfer of Registration

The application form of the Transfer of Registration Fee will need to be completed. This will also be used to add the No Demand Certificate (NDC) and the initial customer copy of the Booking Form. The CNIC will also be expected to copy the Buyer, Seller, and Candidate originals along with their current photographs.

Obtaining ‘Transfer of Registration Title’ Document

After the papers are handed over, Bahria Town will then move the property to the name of the claimant along with the liabilities, deposits, and rights as set out in the Terms and Conditions that will be enforced in the future by Bahria Town. It is necessary to remember that the transfer-listed here concerns registration only, and in the immediate future plot/home/apartment transfers will be allocated.
