E1 D1...allow for precision and cross reference, which I thought would be useful for minimising turnarounds, but I appreciate the detail can be tiring. I hope below suits better.
My dad purchased an open plot from a couple in 1984/1985 by paying an advance followed by paying remaining amount 70 days later and received the title-deed on seller's name. Each payment, property, seller and purchaser are recorded on separate white papers dated, hand written by husband, attested as seller by wife and attested as witness by husband. The second whitepaper states wife relinquished right to plot and would register it whenever and to whomever my dad choses.
Now couple refuses to honour the said agreement. We are unable to get a house number and a municipal permission for construction as we need the plot registered on our name for that. What can recourse to get plot registered on our name with or without the couple honouring their end of bargain, relinquishment and promise to register, noted in the written agreements of 1984/1985?
Below happened in the interim:
* Neighbour home/plot owner documents record that in 2003 my dad, as owner of said plot, payed for road improvement funds then gathered.
* In 2008, couple refused to register it on my dad's name. in 2009, wife gift deeded the plot to husband's name. In 2011, unaware of the gift deed, my dad sent a lawyer notice to couple. Couple's lawyer responded by stating written agreement was invalid as second payment being 3 masas after first payment breaks the 3 masa time limit on remaining payment mentioned in first document. This is not true as both documents are dated and they are 70 days apart.
* My dad soon after in 2011 took physical possession of the plot, placed publicly visible board on the plot declaring it as his, constructed servant quarters and a compound wall, got a metered electric connection to the quarters. A servant-couple has been residing in the quarters and we have been paying the electric charges ever since. Couple has not approached police or court to evict us or the servant-couple. This is the status as of now.
Thanks in advance.
