How I can Avoid Property Fraud in Pakistan?

Due diligence is crucial when purchasing property in Pakistan in light of the growing number of property frauds in the country. Our expert property lawyers at Hamza & Hamza Law Associates have ample experience dealing with property-related disputes, and we strongly recommend that our clients perform due diligence before purchasing a property in Pakistan. There are several important factors to consider, including:

Factors to be considered before Purchasing Property in Pakistan

When purchasing property, it is important to consider the following:

- whether the property is clear of any liens, encumbrances, or charges from a third party

- whether the seller has full and absolute possession of the property

- whether the seller has a full and absolute title to the property

It's important for you to know that there are two types of frauds that are commonly committed against buyers by sellers in Pakistan. The seller may refuse to receive the agreed-upon sale proceeds, or they may flat-out deny having entered into a Sale Agreement with the buyer in relation to the property in question. This leaves the buyer with no other choice but to take the seller to court in order to get them to uphold their end of the agreement. That's why it's essential that the Sale Agreement is written in a way that will offer maximum protection for the buyer.

When drafting a Sale Agreement, it is important to take into consideration the specific requirements of each case. The terms and conditions of the sale should be in accordance with current property law, and each transaction should be completed through a banking instrument.

It is of utmost importance that, when entering into a Sale Agreement with the Seller, a full examination of the revenue record is conducted to determine the present status of the property, as well as the title and status of the seller. This is to avoid any potential challenges by a third party in court that would cause serious inconvenience to the purchaser down the line.
