Under the law, any person that is competent to enter into a contract i.e., who is 18 years old or above and is of sound mind, can sell an immovable property.1 There are specific rules for sale of property by NRIs and PIOs in India. However, for the sale of property to be legal, various aspects come into consideration, such as:
- Whether you have the right to sell, i.e., whether you are the owner
- Whether you have the authority to sell the property. For example, seeing if you have a power of attorney or have been authorized by the owner to sell.
