b. Personal appearance of owner (transferor) is mandatory before DHA City designated officer at the time of Sign Before.
c. Transferor must be in possession of valid original ID documents (CNIC, NICOP, POC etc or valid Passport (for foreigners).

Members (owner) residing Overseas desiring to transfer the property may submit transfer documents duly attested by concerned Pakistan mission abroad provided that their membership is updated / renewed in DHA City record through personal appearance.
First take a decision whether to sell the property or not. If the financial requirement can be met without disposing off the property, then do not sell it as the property value continues appreciating with the passage of time. Selling can also be dictated by investment in lower cost properties for real capital value additions.
Once a decision has been made to dispose off the property, contact reliable sources to find out its existing market value. Do not give the plot number; instead just give the belt, street, phase and the size of the plot.
Find out from friends, colleagues and other sources about contacts of reputed property agents. Once the approximate price value is determined, contact the best property/real estate agent and task him for the demand value. The demand value should be approximately five hundred thousand higher than the existing market value. Meanwhile do not contact any other agent. Wait for his response. Once a reasonable offer is received accept the offer on the condition that the name of the purchaser will be mentioned on the advance agreement in order to avoid the chances of re-sale of the deal and off-loading of property in number of hands.
d. Never agree to transfer of property to a person who will be later nominated as it is the beginning to re-sale property in number of hands.
Bind the time limit in the agreement of not more than 15 days from the day advance against the plot is received and give a definite last date i.e. 15th July 2009, after which the seller is at liberty to sell the property to anyone else.
Ensure to include the clause in the advance agreement that if the buyer fails to make the balance payment by last date then the advance money received by seller will be confiscated and similarly if the seller refuses to transfer the said property then he will return the double of the advance (Bayana) received. (Ensure all payments are made through bank pay order / drafts).
Ask the agent/buyer to provide a photocopy of bank pay orders or bank draft for out station to seller for confirmation of ready payment at least a day earlier than last date. Get these verified from concerned banks.
In case the buyer does not respond by last date make sure you present yourself at DHA transfer office and get your presence recorded under the camera and give an application of complete details with a copy of advance agreement. This will help in reselling of plot and a safe guard against any legal action from unsuccessful buyer.
For successful deals ask the real estate agent to deposit transfer papers at DHA a day prior to the date of transfer. Original Intimation Letter or allotment letter or transfer order has to be attached with the transfer papers. On the next working day present yourself before the DHA designated officer for "Sign Before", ensure to carry along original CNIC and DHA City membership card, also the service card in case of service personnel. You will be photographed while affixing thumb impression.
After the signing before the complete set of transfer documents along with cancelled Information / Intimation letter or transfer order will be returned in the hands of seller, hand over the documents to buyer on receipt of payment / bank pay orders or drafts.
To take special care of you, DHA Karachi provides additional security measures to sellers that inspite of signing before in front of DHA designated officer the property ownership remains your's as long as the set of transfer documents remains in your custody. In case of dispute the property can be revalidated in your name within the specified period. However no claim will be entertained once the set of transfer documents are in possession of buyer.
