Question: Can any person forge my flat Sale Deed just by knowing the flat number and address. Can someone who knows my flat number and address, not having details of my property paper’s, can make a forged document. Try to sell my flat by applying for a Certified Copy (not having any Xerox papers of my flat) just flat number name of owner and address, and not knowing the date of registration of my flat) , is such fraud possible?

Asked from: Rajasthan

A forged document is forged one irrespective of the fact that the maker of the document actually knew the facts of the original document. If you have information that a person has forged your property papers then you should immediately lodge an FIR against that person. 

Forgery is a cognisable offence therefore, you have the right to lodge an FIR. If the police officer finds that there is prima facie evidence that forgery (making forge sale deed) has been committed then he shall initiate the investigation. The investigating officer shall arrest the accused and collect all the evidence.
