Conveyance, Deemed Conveyance of Co-operative Housing Societies

Conveyance of a Property is transferring the Rights, Title, Interest and Ownership of a Property from the Seller to the buyer. In case of a Co- Operative Housing Society (formed by the Flat Purchasers/ Owners under the provisions of Maharashtra Co- Operative Societies Act, 1960), Conveyance is transferring the Rights, Title, Interest and Ownership of the Land and Building from the Land Owner/ Property Developer to the Co- Operative Housing Society.

We were already working on several cases of a similar kind under the provision of Maharashtra Ownership Flats Act, 1963(MOFA). Nearly 80% of the Co-operative Housing Societies had not received the Conveyance of land and building in their favour from the Builder. The amendments were to be carried out in the Maharashtra Ownership Flats Act, 1963 under the auspices of a Competent Authority to hear the grievances on Conveyance by the Societies or other legal bodies in 2005. The President of India gave the assent on February 25, 2008, and it became the Law of the Land.

In June 2008, the necessary notifications were issued by the Government of Maharashtra designating the District Deputy Registrars of the Co-operative Societies as the Competent Authorities under the MOFA even after a lapse of 18 months cases were accepted by the Competent Authority.
