Relinquishment Deed India - An Overview

A legal heir can give up their legal claim to inherited property in favour of other heirs by signing a relinquishment deed. When a person passes away without a will, the relinquishment document transfers title, and the legal heir (through inheritance) must renounce their shares in favour of another legal heir, or co-owner of the same property, if there are any. Transferring a relinquishment deed requires either consideration or no consideration. However, the parties involved must be co-owners of the property for the transfer to qualify as a release or deed of relinquishment.

Benefits of a Relinquishment Deed

  • A relinquishment deed provides for seamless transfer of property when it is jointly owned.
  • A relinquishment deed helps in the transfer of property, in the event of a death and no will has been written by the deceased individual (or intestate).
  • A relinquishment deed allows a legal heir to transfer ownership of his/her inherited property to other legal heirs.
