Can a property be mutated? A beginner’s guide to property mutation!

Over the past decade, the city of Nizams – Hyderabad has emerged as one of the largest employment hubs of India and has been the center of tremendous developments. Standing strong as the home to the second largest number of SEZs in India, Hyderabad has attracted several migrations from all over the country owing to the vast expanse of opportunities. This massive inflow has generated a demand in the real estate sector. One thing that makes Hyderabad a worthy hub for investment is the presence of properties that cater to everyone, from affordable properties to premium luxury options. The infrastructural development of Hyderabad is top-notch and the developments of the city have taken their spot on the global stage.

About Property Mutation

Mutation of property is the process of changing the title ownership from the original owner to the new owner when an immovable property is transferred or sold. It needs to be carried out in all cases of property transfers, be it by sale or purchase, gift, or inheritance. As land is a subject of the state, each state has a record of all land and property deals that act as proof of ownership and help the common man safeguard their property investments. All the information regarding land records is registered and this minimizes the potential for property-related frauds.

After the process of mutation, the new owner obtains the title of the property registered in the land revenue department. It enables the government to charge property tax. The process of mutation further helps the government in determining the tax liability in the case of a change in ownership.

Process of Mutation

Mutation of land takes place in the Block Land & Land Reforms Office.

  • The applicant must apply for property mutation in the prescribed format and be physically present at the office along with all relevant documents
  • The departmental authority can conduct physical verification of the property as a precaution
  • Once the government departmental authority accepts the land documents, the certificate of mutation is issued after the payment of prescribed mutation fees
  • It can take up to a month for the municipality to update its records to show the changes in land ownership and issue a mutation certificate
  • With the technological developments of the country and the digitization of land records in most states, now the process of the mutation can be done online

Is Property Mutation Mandatory?

Property mutation is not mandatory, but the process should be completed as early as possible to ensure that the property is in one’s name in government records.

  • A person needs proof of the mutation when the person plans to sell the property in the future and not having mutation papers can affect your chances of selling the immovable asset
  • As the penalty for not completing mutation is very less (₹25-₹100), most people choose to postpone the process
  • It is legally advised and is safe if the property mutation is carried out immediately after the purchase is done from the point of view of the transfer of ownership
  • Property mutation charges differ from state to state but are in the same range
  • Mutation of property is not a one-time duty as these papers must be updated from time to time. A regular update ensures the authentication of your property records.

Why monsoon is the ideal time to invest?

Why monsoon is the ideal time to invest?

Hyderabad has been the face of dynamic developments in the real estate sector for over a decade now, owing to the adjacent developments in the other sectors of the economy. Hyderabad has emerged as the second-largest IT sector and is home to the second-largest number of SEZs in India that has led a series of global recognitions which led to large-scale development in and around the city of Hyderabad. The infrastructure and roads in Hyderabad are flawlessly built to accommodate the heavy inflow of migrations that aim to build their future in Hyderabad. This in turn has improved the potential for real estate developments in the city due to a steadily rising demand owing to the rising job opportunities in and around the city. In spite of the second wave, the impact on the real estate sector was quite controlled. Monsoons are the most beautiful time of the year. It enhances the natural beauty of your surroundings while triggering nostalgic emotions all around. Let’s see why the monsoon is also the most beautiful time to invest in real estate.

Investing During Monsoons

Monsoons pose as the right time to start looking for real estate options as most people don’t realize the advantages of buying a home or land to invest in during these times.

  • People generally try and make big investments during the festival seasons that are followed by the monsoons making it a great time
  • The demand for properties tends to take a dip during monsoons that leads to more affordable prices and offers
  • Monsoons act as a reality check on the property you are interested to invest in and can tell you all about the quality of development, bringing you additional clarity about your decision
  • Apart from discounts on properties, the rate of interest on bank loans takes a dip too due to the lean season
  • Monsoon gives you a chance to inspect the quality of roads leading up to the project and the sewage system accommodated in the project

Challenges of investing during monsoons

  • While the rains reveal a lot of things about the property, it could change your mind about the property you like
  • If the roads leading to your potential property are flooded due to rains can affect your decision making
  • Indians avoid purchasing new things during Shraadhs (Pitrupaksh/Paksh Maas) and if you like a property, you will not be able to go ahead with the purchase for a month until the auspicious day
  • Travelling to far off locations can be bothersome during the rains

Freehold vs. Leasehold: Which properties fetch the best returns?

Freehold vs. Leasehold: Which properties fetch the best returns?

Hyderabad has a culturally rich background that is imprinted into each brick of the city. It has now grown to be an ideal and lucrative hub for local and foreign investments owing to three main factors: amazing infrastructure, great environment, and consistency in the development of different economic sectors of the city. Apart from hosting the second-highest number of SEZs in India, it also contributes heavily to the pharmaceutical industry. The boosting developments in different sectors have opened many job opportunities, leading to many migrations into the city, which has significantly impacted the demand for profitable real estate investments, homes, or otherwise.

About Freehold Properties

Freehold or free from hold properties are those where the owner of the property has the absolute ownership and clear title of the building as well as the land on which the building is constructed till the time the owner decides to sell the property.

  • The owner has the freedom to do anything with their property (within the bounds of the law) like sell, renovate or rent it out after permissions from the respective authorities
  • The owner doesn’t need the consent of any third party to make the sale of the property and the owner can will it, or gift it, or even donate it
  • Freehold properties can be inherited by the next of kin or spouse legally. These are generally more expensive due to the permanent ownership and flexibility availed with the sale.
  • The owner has to pay the maintenance of the property and can even lease it to somebody without any restrictions or can be transferred by sale deed registration

About Leasehold Properties

Leasehold property means that the property is leased to you for a fixed period of time and you have the right only to stay for the pre-decided period of time. After the expiration of the lease, the rights to the property go back to the owner. The buyer has no direct ownership of the property and he/she must pay the ground rent to the owner or the leaseholder of the property.

  • It’s possible to extend the lease according to your convenience but at a higher cost. Generally, the lease period is 99 years but can be extended up to 999 years.
  • For any modifications, the buyer requires the permission of the owner
  • It is possible to extend or renew the leasehold according to your comfort
  • The tenure of the lease influences the value of the property
  • They are cheaper than freehold properties due to the rigid structure of operations and bank loans are quite hard to get for the purchase of a leasehold property
  • The buyer is not responsible for the maintenance of the property, but the owner needs to take care of it

Ideally, freehold properties are the better choice as the value of real estate grows over time so your investment is bound to multiply, but in the case of leasehold properties, paying rent is a one-way loss with returns.

The locations for our projects have been picked after thorough research of the market in order to provide the best possible returns on your investment. Visit to know more about us and our work.
