transfer of property to strangers

  • 1 Answer

Is there any case where transfer of property is done to a stranger person because he was helping the person when he was sick and not to his son?

As per Section 7 of the Transfer of Property Act any person who has title over the property and is competent to contract can give away his property to any individual he wishes to.  So as the person was sick Im not sure if he was on his death bed etc, if that is the case then the transfer may be challenged. As there is no mention of the form of transfer, procedure under gifts could also be looked at, though the transfer of property has no section for 'oral gift'.
