Q 1) I own a residential flat in which my family and I are residing. The flat is jointly owned by my wife and me. A few years ago, I purchased a row house in Talegaon, Pune. The said row house was also purchased in the joint names of my wife and me. In both cases, I am the first holder and my wife is the joint holder. The loan taken for the row house was taken in my name and is being repaid by me. Can my wife and I claim one of the properties each as self occupied property (SOP)?

You have not mentioned whether your wife has contributed towards the purchase of the said immoveable properties or not. Further, it is not clear whether your wife is showing the said properties (to the extent of her share) in her balance sheet. Thus, it is difficult to give an opinion in this case. However, prima facie it appears that both the properties belong to you, and your wife’s name was included in the title for convenience purpose only. Hence, based on the present facts, it may be difficult for your wife to claim one of the properties as her SOP.
