Online Registration of Leave-License Agreement

FAQ - Registration Leave License Agreement

A Leave and License Agreement agreement that is signed before and scanned with the Government’s Registrar office is a registered agreement. This process is conducted and concluded with the office of Sub Registrar for a particular area.

 

It requires all owners (or PoA holder) and tenants to be present at one of the Registration offices in Pune at the scheduled date and time.

 

The Registrar or the Sub-Registrar usually checks the entire document and checks if adequate stamp duty is paid for the agreement. He also checks if the PoA holder is duly authorized and has appropriate powers to sign and register the agreement on behalf of the owner.

 

At the registration office, photos, signatures and thumb impression of the owners (or PoA holder) and tenant are taken and the entire agreement is scanned by the registrar.

 

A registered document becomes a public document and can be accessed in accordance with the legal procedures.

Registration being an electronic process depends upon the connection and speed of the centralized government server, for e.g. - if the central server is down or connectivity is slow, registration may take longer time.
