As a first time property buyer, I was not sure about the best way on how to process property purchase and what to include in property sales deed to protect my interest as a buyer. e-Genja really helped me to consider all important terms to be included.
e-Genja™ is Bhutan’s first and only online property agreement generator to ease land and property transaction processes. Simply fill up the form and get a property agreement in your email. Currently only the rural and urban land transaction agreement generator is available. Users can also avail Dzongkha translation of the property agreement and it is verified for error-free submission to local authorities and generates seller invoices for sale/purchase.
Users can be buyers, sellers or brokers generating property agreements on behalf of buyers and sellers.
A verified property agreement is a manual verification of property agreement by NLCS (National Land Commission Secretariat) certified conveyance based on the information you submit through the online form. The NLCS Certified conveyance has access to the NLCS database about the Lagthram and hence the ‘Verified’ property agreement involves the following activities.
Spelling checks and typos in the names of transferor and transferee, their Citizenship Identify card number, plot id, plot name, and location name.
Verify if the Lagthram under transaction is mortgaged or not and avoid multiple purchases and sales. (Disclaimer: Verification based on NLCS database only. We do not take the risk of newly updated transactions dated after the submission of this form and non-updated transactions)
Recommend a mandatory and suggestive list of clauses in your property agreement and give you a Guideline on the series of important checklists and steps to be followed on submission of the agreement to the local authorities.
The non-uniformity in the genja (internal agreement), a pre—requisite for land transaction, is creating confusion and hassle for the land conveyancers and public in general. e-Genja is developed as a standard downloadable format with user detail input.
The benefits of e-Genja are as follows.
