Property related disputes whether they be between individuals or institutions or individuals and institutions are debilitating for all parties. They carry on for long duration and result in all sides atrophying emotionally and financially. It also has financial implications for the system which is already under severe stress. I am sure many preemptive things can be done to not just speed up the litigation process but to reduce the occurrence of disputes to begin with. Higher awareness among public in general regarding legal ownership of properties or claims made on properties etc will help the real estate and legal eco-system in general by mitigating the risk of fraud and cheating.
