Recitals contain the short story of the property up to its vesting into its transferors. Care should be taken that recitals are short and intelligible. Recitals may be of two types. One, narrative recitals which relates to the past history of the property transferred and sets out the facts and instrument necessary to show the title and relation to the party to the subject matter of the deed as to how the property was originally acquired and held and in what manner it has developed upon the grantor or transferor. The extent of interest and the title of the person should be recited.

**RECITALS** Recitals contain the short story of the property up to its vesting into its transferors. Care should be taken that recitals are short and intelligible. Recitals may be of two types. One, narrative recitals which relates to the past history of the property transferred and sets out the facts and instrument necessary to show the title and relation to the party to the subject matter of the deed as to how the property was originally acquired and held and in what manner it has developed upon the grantor or transferor. The extent of interest and the title of the person should be recited. It should be written in chronological order i.e. in order of occurrence. This forms part of narrative recitals. This is followed by inductory recitals, which explain the motive or intention behind execution of deed. Introductory recitals are placed after narrative recitals. The basic objective of doing so, is to put the events relating to change of hand in the property. Recitals should be inserted with great caution because they precede the operative part and as a matter of fact contain the explanation to the operative part of the deed. If the same is ambiguous recitals operate as estoppel. Recital offers good evidence of facts recited therein. Recitals are not generally taken into evidence but are open for interpretation for the courts. If the operative part of the deed is ambiguous anything contained in the recital will help in its interpretation or meaning. In the same sense, it is necessary that where recitals contain chronological events that must be narrated in chronological order. Thanks
