Firstly,
1. You can file an application before the office of Sub-Registrar and demand all the property papers in respect of the property;
2. You can personally try to trace the 1st and 2nd owners and also file an RTI in that regard;
3. Make sure there is no legal case pending in respect of the property in any courts within the jurisdiction of the property;
4. Also make sure that the 3rd owner of that property. If all documents are in order, then that means he was the owner of that property and he has a perfect title which he can give to you.
5. Will need to assess every single paper in respect of the property then only appropriate adivce can be given.
