Under the Indian legal system, properties are divided into two categories – movable and immovable. The Transfer of Property Act (ToPA), 1882, which came into force on July 1, 1882, deals with the aspects of the transfer of properties between living beings. One of the oldest laws in the Indian legal system, the Transfer of Property Act is an extension of the law of contracts and runs parallel to the succession laws. For those planning to transfer their immovable property, knowing the key aspects of the Transfer of Property Act is quite important.
