What Is Partition Deed and Why Is It Important?

We hear a lot about property partitions in televisions, movies and real-life instances as well. Especially when someone shifts from a joint family to a nuclear one. There could be multiple reasons for the same including job relocation and family disputes. However, sometimes property partitions occur in case the co-owners are business partners or friends. Partition of any immovable property is a lengthy official process and needs proper registration in the sub-registrar’s office. You also require the consent of all parties, legal documents, a list of assets, liabilities, witnesses and a well-defined partition deed. A partition deed helps dictate the terms of partition and brings forward all the terms and conditions if any. To know more about the partition deed, read on further.

What Is a Partition Deed?

What Is a Partition Deed
(Each co-owner has the right to transfer, give, or sell their portion of the property after the partition deed is signed.)

A partition deed is a legal document that enables the joint property to be divided between its shareholders. It means that if a property is co-owned by two or more people, a partition deed enables them to hold their respective parts individually. The owners can then proceed with the legal functioning of their properties as routine. On execution of the partition deed, the dividend properties can be sold, gifted or transferred according to the owner’s wish.

The partition deed is mostly used in the case of distribution of immovable property in joint households. When members of a family decide to own their inherited share of the property, a legal partition process is carried out. In such cases, each portion of the divided property gets its title. 

Partition With Mutual Consent Vs. Without Mutual Consent 

Partition With Mutual Consent Vs. Without Mutual Consent
(Through an action for partition, you can contest a Partition Deed if you believe you were not legitimately assigned the share.)

Consent of Both Parties

  • If all co-owners acknowledge that the property ownership should be split, the partition deed can be signed.
  • The partition deed guarantees that the property is divided according to each individual’s portion.
  • Co-owners become lawful owners of their portion of the property when the partition deed is executed, and they are able to give, sell, or trade their share of the property.

In the Absence of Mutual Consent

  • If the co-owners refuse to sign a partition deed, a lawsuit must be brought to court.
  • Following that, the partition deed must be executed and recorded on a stamp paper with the details of each joint owner’s portion.

What Does the Partition Act Entail?

What Does the Partition Act Entail
(To “partition” property legally is to file a court action to force the physical division or sale of the property, as well as the distribution of the revenues among the co-owners.)

A partition action must be filed if the family agrees to proceed with the partition deed. If there are any disagreements about the property’s rights, you can file a partition suit to have the disagreement resolved by a court. A division deed must be signed if all parties concerned are willing to settle any problems peacefully.

The portion of every co-owner of the property is defined by a partition document. Only when the division deed has been properly registered with the Sub-Registrar office can it be deemed a valid document. Following registration, the next step is to thoroughly register and imprint it on stamp paper.

Why is a Property Partition Deed Needed?

Why is a Property Partition Deed Needed
(Partition deed ensures the legal division of the property which is jointly held by several people.)

When a property is co-owned by a group of individuals, there is a lot of uncertainty attached to it. Dividing the rights and responsibilities according to everyone’s wishes can be a tough task. Moreover, people might find themselves involved in familial disputes which makes it harder to co-own a property. In such cases, it is better to execute the partition deed and walk away with the individual’s shares. Once the consent of each co-owner is obtained, the legal process of partition can be carried out. Once done, each member gets to own their property and make sole decisions regarding it. However, if there is no mutual consent involved, the interested party will have to file a lawsuit in court. 

Documents Required for Partition Deed Registration

What Is the Registration Process and Partition Deed Stamp Duty?

What Is the Registration Process and Partition Deed Stamp Duty
(When a co-owner of an ancestral property wishes to have his or her own portion, a partition deed is necessary.)

According to Section 17 of the Indian Registration Act, 1908, a partition deed has to be registered in the office of the sub-registrar of the same area as that of the immovable asset. To finalise the partition deed, all individuals involved will have to pay registration charges and stamp duty according to the Indian Stamp Act, 1899. The value of stamp duty charges in Delhi is 2% of the total property value of the separated share. For Maharashtra, a 2% stamp duty charge is applicable along with 1% registration fees. 

Whether it is a partition between families or business owners, situations are likely to get a bit muddy if the cases are dragged to court. Therefore, to simplify such processes and eliminate extra inconvenience to both law bodies and citizens, a partition deed is formed. It clearly specifies the terms of partition and is registered in the office of the sub-registrar of that respective area. Based on your religion or the relationship among the co-owners, the content of a partition deed may vary. Once executed, each co-owner gets complete rights over their share of the property. Each property gets a title and is considered a separate entity in the eyes of the law.

Question 1 – How is property divided between co-owners?

Answer 1 – By default, property is divided between the owners in equal shares. But if there is legal proof stating otherwise, different portions of shares might be distributed. For example – if a property worth Rs. 1 Crore has been purchased by two people with investments of Rs. 40 Lakh and Rs. 60 Lakh respectively, it will be divided on the 40-60 basis. In cases of inherited property, the division occurs based on the inheritance law applicable in their religion.

Question 2 – What is the difference between a partition deed and a partition suit?

Answer 2 – Partition requests are not always mutual. If one of the co-owners wants to own their portion of the property while the other one resists, the matter is taken to the court of the law. With consent, a partition deed is filed in the sub-registrar’s office. In cases of resistance from any of the parties involved, a partition suit is filed in the court. However, before moving to court, it is necessary to issue a partition deed request. If refused, the matter heads on to the legal procedures. 

Question 3 – Who writes up a partition deed?

Answer 3 – You should hire a competent documentation lawyer to write a partition deed. They have the necessary knowledge and experience to handle such legal matters. Without missing the essential details, they will draft a partition deed that will best represent your case. 

Question 4 – Is the registration process compulsory during a verbal partition agreement?

Answer 4 – If all the parties settle the partition amicably and verbally, there is no need to register any partition documents. Based on the inheritance laws applicable in Hindus, Jains, Buddhists and Sikhs, Class-I heirs hold the power to verbally execute a partition. 

Question 5 – What happens if a partition deed is not registered?

Answer 5 – If not registered, a partition deed can be declared null and void according to the situation. It is not admissible in any court of law under Section 49 of the Registration Act, 1908.
