  1. Inheritance and Will

When you buy a plot in the name of a deceased person, you have to tackle claims from inheritors. It’s common practice in Pakistan that people try to sell a property without the consent of all inheritors. So, what does happen? You face difficulty in the transfer of ownership and possession. 

How to resolve it?

Try to find out all inheritors of the property and make sure that every stakeholder is present during the transaction. Plus, you have to create proof of payment to all inheritors through legal papers. If you do not do so, you have to face litigation in the future.

  1. Damages Property & Noisy Neighbors

It is very common that people find damages after the purchase of the property. As a result, they cannot do any legal proceedings. So, it is your responsibility to check the property from every angle then proceed with the transaction. Plus, you can also find toxic neighbors when you get the possession.

How to resolve it?

Put the seller into a legal binding that there is no fault or hidden damage in the property. This way, you can take the seller to court if you find anything negative in the property after the possession. Plus, talk to people in the neighborhood about the attitude of neighbors. If you find anything wrong, leave the property. It will save you from trouble in the future.

  1. Property Ownership Dispute

When you buy a property from joint ownership, then you may face these issues. The other partner may not be willing to give you some shared space or anything similar. Plus, you cannot resolve it through court.

  1. Tenancy Issues

Tenancy issues happen when you buy a rented property. The tenants put you in difficulties, and sometimes, they litigate for rent renewal, maintenance, and rent expiration.
