Good news for those who wish to transfer their property to people other than blood relations, Haryana housing board has now formulated a new policy which allows transferring of houses and commercial property by paying requisite fee and charges. Under the new policy, the allottees will also get the conveyance deed executed in respect of their flats.

Giving this information, spokesperson of the housing board said that they have made these changes in a recently held meeting under the chairmanship of housing board head. According to him, the need for these changes arose because all the existing policies were restrictive in nature and not in consonance with the aims and objectives of “housing for all”. It also hampers the main objective of the board to provide affordable housing to the needy.

He further informed that now one can easily transfer their tenancy rights to any person apart from their blood relations. While there is no such eligibility condition in this, one thing which is necessary is that the transferee must be above 18 years of age.

However in cases of transfers of residential units based on the general power of attorney (GPA) transactions, where GPA contains a clause to this effect and attorney is legal, valid and enforceable, have been made permissible, provided that the attorney holder would have to give an affidavit to the effect that allottee is alive and the GPA has not been cancelled.
