Agricultural land or plots are often owned jointly by multiple people within the extended family. The fact that there is more than one stakeholder can make it difficult to divide or sell, generally due to the varied interests of the owners.

Also, complications may occur due to the constant law changes of inheritance which can play an important role in the property division process.

Partition of a land can be difficult but is easier if all co-owners can come to a compromise. If not, appropriate lawsuits may have to be filed in the courts. Official documentation will then be issued, which indicates which area each stakeholder officially owns.

Partition deed ensures the legal division of the property, whereas each member is entitled to sell, gift or transfer their own share of the property to whoever they wish.
