Overview of Relinquishment Deed

Many people neglect creating a will for years & sometimes die without one. It is said that if the person died without a will, it is called as “intestate”. It also includes the property of a person which was inherited by his/her legal heir. In that case, they can go for relinquishment deed, which allows a smooth transfer of property - if there are two or more legal heirs, and can request to separate the property in future.

A relinquishment deed is termed as a legal document where a legal heir gives up his/her legal rights to ‘inherited property’ in good faith of other heirs. When the person dies intestate, the relinquishment deed transfers ownership. The legal heir (by inheritance) will transfer their shares in favor of co-owner or an additional legal heir, of the same property. A relinquishment deed will be assigned either for consideration or with no consideration. Conversely, the parties involved must be co-owners of the property for the transfer to be released or relinquished.

What are the Key Components of a Relinquishment Deed?

  • Registration of Deed

    Relinquishment deed is an essential legal document that is mandatory to get registered at the concerned sub-registrar office under "Section 17 of the Registration Act, 1908".

  • Legal Rights

    An heir can transfer or release his constitutional right of the inherited property through the Relinquishment deed (legal document).

  • Consideration

    A relinquishment can be made for a valid consideration (Release Deed) or even with no consideration.

  • Irrevocable

    Even if the relinquishment deed is done without any consideration, it is meant that its release is irrevocable by nature. More than one person should own the property if in question for a valid Relinquishment.

What are the essential considerations that need to be in the Relinquishment deed?

What are the essential considerations that need to be in the Relinquishment deed
  • Title Description

    The introduction section of the Relinquishment deed should contain the words ‘relinquishment deed/deed’ with the details of “date of creation” of the document.

  • Executant and Releasor

    Since the rights are to be released in a property by executing the document, therefore the person who makes the relinquishment deed is known as a releasor/executant. The details such as full name, father’s/husband’s name, and domestic address is required. It may be one or more of the prevailing shareowners.

  • Releasee

    The person is known as a releasee who receives the relinquished titles/ rights/share. Attention should be taken to comprise all details like full name, father’s/husband’s name, and full address.

  • Property Details

    The details of the entire property are vital (name of the last owner). It is implied that it is no need for a relinquishment deed for a property owned absolutely by a single owner only if there is no absolute owner at present. It is needed to mention all minute details such as a complete address, registration details, survey number, Sub-registrar office details like volume number, book number, office name, etc.

  • State the Purpose

    The prime purpose should be mentioned in a relinquishment deed. It can happen that the absolute owner of the whole property died “intestate.” There would be no 'complications' that would amplify the creation of a relinquishment deed if there been a testament/will. It is because since division would be comparatively more straightforward and obviously with different shares.

  • Heir Particulars

    All present heirs to that property must be named preferably in a table with details like age, address, details of name/title, and relationship to the deceased ‘absolute owner.’

  • Share Particulars

    The property will be owned by heirs according to the applicable “Succession Act” if there is no existing will to the creation of the relinquishment deed, the proportion of shares held by each heir up should be stated.

  • Relinquishment

    The releasors/executants releasing their 'shares in the property', in favor of the releasee, are the most important clause in a relinquishment deed. It should mention that it has been done out of natural love and affection and without any monetary consideration.

    The property must be termed once again accompanied by a declaration that they and their legal heirs will have no claim above the mentioned property. It will be said that the property rights shall vest absolutely with the releasee only if all remaining heirs release their shares in favor of one heir.

  • Authorized Signatures

    All the releasee and the executants shall sign the document. Before being registered at the specified Sub-registrar office, it must be attested by two witnesses where the property is located.

What are the benefits of executing a Relinquishment Deed?

  • Seamless Transfer

    A relinquishment deed when it is jointly owned is responsible for the smooth transfer of property.

  • Secure transfer if no Will

    If in the event of a death-no will have been written by the deceased individual (or intestate), in that case, relinquishment deed comforts in the transfer of property.

  • Other Heirs

    A relinquishment deed permits a legal heir to transfer ownership of the inherited property to additional legal heirs.

What is the Registration Procedure of Relinquishment Deed?

The Relinquishment deed must be registered as per Section 17 of the Registration Act, 1908. It is because the said deed is a legal document in which a legal heir transfers his constitutional rights in an inherited property in the act of kindness of other legal heirs.

The following are the steps comprised in the Registration of a Relinquishment deed. Those are as follows:-

  • Preparing/drafting a relinquishment deed is known to be the very 1st step towards the Registration Process. We advise you to consult a lawyer who can draft the deed as per your requirement.
  • The Relinquishment deed has to be printed on a stamp paper of Rs 100. Every detail should be mentioned in the deed of the relinquished property.
  • If the deed is prepared, the next step is to submit it before the sub-registrar of assurances within the jurisdiction where the property is situated.
  • Afterward, you have to pay the registration fee for its Registration. Generally, it is somewhere between 'Rs 100-Rs 250' in every state because the Registration fee varies from state to state.
  • On the fixed day for the deed's registration, both the parties and two witnesses have to get an appointment (visit physically) for the sub-registrar office. Get all the documents with you for the verification and registration process as per requirement.
  • Registered Relinquishment Deed can be obtained after a week after the above-listed procedure is done.
  • A provision has been made under 'Section 31 of the Act' sanctioning the Registering officer in cases where a person is physically disabled and cannot visit the sub-registrar office. It helps the physically disabled attend at the residence of any person desiring to present a Relinquishment Deed for Registration.
  • It must be noted that the unregistered relinquishment deed is not a valid deed and not eligible for contesting in the court.
