If the property has been pledged on a loan, ensure you get a Release certificate from the bank which proves that the loan on the land has been paid in full.
If it is a resale property, ask to check all previous property tax receipts and other utility bills to ensure they have been paid.
After booking your selected plot, always make sure to register the property in your name. This is when the Sale Deed is drafted and registered, which means it legally transfers ownership rights from the seller to you.
