Property Ownership for Husband and Wife
« on: August 17, 2018, 01:43:59 AM »
Hello Esteemed Lawyers,

I am a NRI (Hindu Couple) and have below scenario

1. Wife Owns a property in Pune (Purchased after marriage)
2. I bought a flat in Lucknow  (Purchased after marriage, but agreement not done)

My questions
1. Should i add my wife as a co-owner while registering the property? I do not see any benefit of doing it and to me it's more as financial cost
2. Do i have any rights on the property owned by my wife.


Please advise.

what you are asking in entirely your choice.

regarding the second question you do not have any rights in your wife's property.
only on the death of your wife if she dies without a will than the law of succession will apply and you will have an equal share along with your children

Dear sir,
My answers are as follows:
1. Should i add my wife as a co-owner while registering the property? I do not see any benefit of doing it and to me it's more as financial cost
Ans: You are correct.  You should not join your wife as a co-owner.  It may be registered in your name alone. 
2. Do i have any rights on the property owned by my wife.
Ans: No, if your name is entered as co-owner along with your wife’s property then it attracts definition of dowry.  Better avoid it.
