Land mutation means the process of completing paperwork including title deeds under a local municipal office when a property gets sold or gets transferred to another name. The property records are then mutated, and the new owner’s name is registered by the Land Revenue Department. According to the records of the department, the new owner will start paying property tax. It is also important to note that the procedural change and all added charges during the mutation process differ from state to state in India.

Who Can Get Property Mutation Done?

Those who purchase land or apartments or inherit it in the form of a will or gift will have to get mutation done.

When Mutation of property can be done?

While the process of mutation is significant and necessitates the participation of both the buyer and the seller, it is regarded as a mere formality and can be finished at any point following the completion of the transaction. In a technical sense, a property that underwent a land mutation in Mumbai is not the same as a property that underwent one in Delhi.  This is because these states’ governing bodies differ from one another.
