Right of legal heirs of GPA holder on property Right of legal heirs of GPA holder on property

Hello,

I am about to buy a property from seller. On the same property owner gave GPA to his father and GPA is not revoked.

Now GPA holder died and real owner (son) is selling property. Owner belongs to Muslim category and i am Hindu

1.Is there any legal issues in this transaction?

2.Can legal heirs of GPA holder can claim right on property?

3. Can GPA be revoked now i.e. after GPA holder demise?

4. Is there any complications for religion ?

A.As far as religion is concerned there is no bar as such.
Power of attorney can be given to a person only for operating certain or all works but it ends on the same day and moment either of two dies or person who gave it has revoked it. There is no legal heirs right on power of attorney.

A.After Death of GPA holder that Power of Attorney became inoperative and revoked automatically for ever.

Besides that even when the GPA holder remains alive, the Owner always can exercise his right to transfer the property in Registered manner.

GPA is not hereditary so GPA holder's legal heirs cannot claim anything.

Religion is not a bar to transfer the property.
