Whether you co-share a property by inheritance or co-own a property by purchase, when it comes to partitioning the property, you are required to prepare a partition deed that settles the issue on who gets what in detail. And like any other deed, there are certain fees associated with the partition deed. In this article, we will discuss everything from the registration fee of the partition deed to additional charges for each document.
Where else do you need this deed?
Other than serving as legally upheld proof of the distribution of inherited property among the partners, the partition deed is also required to mutate the distributed property to its rightful inheritors or owners. You will also need the partition deed to sell your property. If you want to get a loan against your inherited property, you are required to present this document as well. Also, during a land survey, if you are unable to present this deed, chances are pretty great that you may not get your property recorded.
Registration fee of partition deed
Unlike other types of deeds, the registration fee of the partition deed will differ depending on the total value of the property mentioned in the partition deed. However, in this case, the total value is calculated excluding the value of the largest portion. That way, if the total value of the property mentioned in the deed (excluding the value of the largest portion) does not exceed 3 lakh taka then the registration fee would be BDT 500. If it does not exceed 10 lakh taka then the registration fee would be BDT 700. The registration fee would be BDT 1200 and 1800 if the total value of the property mentioned in the deed (excluding the value of the largest portion) doesn’t exceed 30 and 50 lakh taka respectively. But the value exceeds 50 lakh taka then the registration fee would be BDT 2000.
Unlike the registration fee, stamp duty is fixed and you have to pay only BDT 50 for that. There is no capital gain tax but if anyone wishes to sell their portion and make a profit out of it then, they are obliged to pay capital gain tax for that.

As we mentioned earlier, you may co-share a property by inheritance or co-own a property by purchase. If you co-own a property by purchase, there is nothing much that you have to do to prepare a partition deed. However, if you co-share a property by inheritance, you have to manage quite a few things in order to prepare the deed. You have to collect the death certificate of the person you have inherited your property from. Then you have to collect a warisan certificate with all the necessary documents of the property.
But most importantly, The Partition Deed has to be documented through the presence and signature of all the participants. If any participant does not agree to distribute the property amicably, the matter is settled through a court case.
