Is transferring a property a lengthy process?

YES. The process of transferring a property from one person to one or more other living persons, a company, an association or body of individuals is generally time consuming. The reason is that the verification and scrutiny of legal documents, preparing relevant deeds, conducting title search of property, obtaining permissions from government departments, streamlining banking procedures, etc does require utmost care and if done hastily, can cause losses to the concerned parties.
