How do you safeguard your Property documents ??


I had struggled a lot to safeguard and maintain the inherited property document after few of them had been misused by frauds
but now i have found various ways to organize and keep it safe

  • Make multiple photocopies and keep each copy in different places . one at home , one at your parent’s house and one set in the bank locker
  • get an external hard disk and keep all scanned copies in it. save one set in your personal laptop too . whatever you prefer
  • watermark every document . you can use online free service like watermark pdf onine
    or any other offline method
  • watermark
  • you can also save a copy in Google drive or any other cloud which is safer. but make sure you encrypt files or password protect them or add additional level  of security
  • make a master list of all documents.
    Go digital . create online account with government website like Bangalore Water Supply and Sewerage Board (BWSSB), The Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP),  BESCOM : Bangalore Electricity Supply Company Limited , etc. so that you can get tax paid details, water, electricity bill paid details, and many other details offered online

These are few idea I have for now . do share me if you have different ideas. i will incorporate them .

  1. I agree with you. Inherited property and others property issue needs proper documentation. Even a small mistake costs a lot. This is my personal experience. Thanks for sharing your valuable tips. I think e mail folders / cloud are also good ideas.

  2. I’m so sure, I had visited here and made a comment, because I liked the topic. But my comments does’nt seem to be here.
    I have this habit of keeping all Important Papers, Topic Wise in different colored folders. If it is a Certificate, I get it laminated. You must be organised with your documents and files. Keep backups on cloud is best.
