Two bona fide buyers of property.

Question: When two bona fide buyers have acquired the titled to a property then which one of these two shall be considered the owner of the property?


There is an important law principle that no man can convey a title other than what he has. If a person has already affected a transfer, he cannot derogate from his grant and deal with the property free from the rights created under the earlier transaction. Since the transfer of title to the subsequent buyer shall already be defected protection or reservation in favour of a subsequent transferee who has no knowledge of the prior transfer will not be accorded by law. However a bona fide subsequent transferee may plead and justify to the court his entitlement to the property depending on subjective facts of your case.
