Title and Introduction

The title should contain the words ‘relinquishment deed’ along with the date in the introduction.

Identification of the Executants

The person making relinquishment deed is known as an executant or a releasor as the rights are released from a property by executing the document. The deed must contain all the details, including full name and residential address.

Identification of the Releasee

The details of the release, including the name and address, shall be included in the deed. The person who receives the rights is known as a releasee.

Description of the Property

The description of the entire property is essential. The name of the last owner is necessary. It is mandatory to mention all the minute details such as survey number, complete address, registration details, sub-registrar office details like book number, volume number, office name, etc.


The purpose of relinquishment should be mentioned in the deed. Suppose if the owner of the property died intestate by leaving a will, then there would be no complications to necessitate the creation of relinquishment deed.

Details of legal heirs

All details like name, address, age and relationship to the deceased or the owner should be named in a table of the deed.

Details of shares

The critical clause to be mentioned in a relinquishment deed is mentioning of the executants releasing their shares in favour of the releasee out of natural love and affection and without any monetary consideration. The property should be described with a declaration that they and their legal heirs have no claim over the said property. If all remaining heirs release their shares in favour of one heir, it will be mentioned that the rights of the property shall vest absolutely with the releasee.


The deed should be signed by all the executants, the releasee and two witnesses before the concerned sub-registrar office within the jurisdiction of property.
