ANSWER:
Flat 5% and Rs.30,000/- registration fees.

ANSWER:
The parties can themselves decide who shall pay the stamp duty. If nothing is mentioned in the agreement then as per Section 30 of the Bombay Stamp Act, if the transaction relates to resale of flats, the stamp duty will have to be paid by the purchaser.

ANSWER:
The stamp duty paid document has to be registered under the Indian Registration Act with the sub-registrar of Assurances, of the jurisdiction where the property is situated. The basic purpose of registration is to record the ownership.

ANSWER:
Once adequate stamp duty is paid for an instrument and it is dated, signed by the parties and attested (where required) by witnesses, it can be lodged for registration after payment of the registration fee. All parties signing the instrument are required to attend the office of the concerned Sub Registrar of Assurances either in person or through their constituted attorney to admit execution of the instrument. If the signatory to the instrument is different than the person present for registration, the power of attorney in such case will require registration. A copy of the PAN Card is essential for registration. After lodging an instrument it is registered and the seal of the Sub Registrar is affixed on the instrument, thereafter the original instrument is returned back to the parties.
