In this blog, we have discussed how a gift deed is prepared and what information is written.

Gift deed: 

Important sections to mention:

No money or force involved:

Make sure you add this idea section to the gift deed. It should be pointed out that there is no exchange of money, and the gift deed is done only out of love and affection and not because of money or coercion.

You must own your Property when you give a gift:

Only the owner can gift the Property. If the Donor is not the owner of the Property (the title holder), you cannot give an asset as a gift to someone else, even in anticipation.

Description of Property:

All the information related to the Property, such as structure, type of Property, address, area, location, etc., should be mentioned in the property gift deed format.

Relationship between Donor and Donee:

If the Donor and the Donor are blood relatives, some state governments may give exemption from stamp duty. Even otherwise, it is essential to establish a relationship between the Donor and the Property to be done in gift deed format.

Mention liabilities:

If the Gift has rights or liabilities attached to it, such as whether the recipient can sell or lease the gifted Property, etc., such clauses should be mentioned in a gift deed.

Delivery Section:

It refers to the express or implied action of distribution of possession of the Property on a gift deed.

Revocation of the Gift:

The Donor can also explicitly state whether they want the Donor's revocation clause of the gift deed to be complied with. This gift deed clause must be agreed upon by both the Donor and the recipient.
