How do you do Due Diligence of Land in Pakistan?


Due diligence is the process of gathering information about a property before buying it. It is important to do due diligence on any property, but it is especially important in Pakistan, where there is a high risk of fraud and corruption.

There are a number of steps you can take to do due diligence on land in Pakistan. These steps include:

  • Check the title: The first step is to check the title of the land. You can do this by obtaining a copy of the land record from the relevant government authority. The land record will show who owns the land and any encumbrances on the land, such as mortgages or liens.
  • Inspect the property: Once you have checked the title, you should inspect the property. This includes looking for any physical damage to the property and checking for any encroachments on the property.
  • Conduct a title search: A title search is a more in-depth investigation of the title of the land. This search will look for any defects in the title, such as forged documents or missing documents.
  • Hire a reputable lawyer and law firm:┬áIt is always advisable to hire a lawyer to help you with the due diligence process. Josh and Mak International can help you understand the legal implications of buying the land and can represent you in any negotiations with the seller.

By following these steps, you can reduce the risk of buying a property that is defective or that has been illegally acquired. Housing societies often have illegally acquired land in Pakistan, which creates litigation problems later.If you buy land in such societies, they may face a stay order and state penalties later on.It is always advisable to check in detail and ask questions as to how a society has acquired their land.

Here are some additional tips for doing due diligence on land in Pakistan:

  • Ask for references: Ask the seller for references from previous buyers. This will give you an idea of the seller’s reputation.
  • Check the seller’s background: Do a background check on the seller. This will help you identify any red flags, such as a history of fraud or bankruptcy.
  • Get everything in writing: Make sure all agreements are in writing and signed by both parties. This will help to avoid any disputes down the road.
