It implies a declaration of will, not a mere statement of a fact; Sakharan v. Jagarnath Kuari, 59 IA , wherein it stated: "The distinction is between a mere recital of a fact and something which in itself creates a title. Anant, 2 Bom A deposit of title deeds with the creditor by the debtor with the intent to create a security implies in law a contract between the parties to create a mortgage and no registered instrument is required under section 59 of the Transfer of Property Act as in other case of mortgage.

But if the parties choose to reduce the contract to writing, this implication of law is excluded by their express bargain and the document will be the sole evidence of its terms. In such a case the deposit and the document both form integral parts of the transaction and are essential in the creation of the mortgage. In such a case the document which constitutes the bargain regarding security requires registration under section 17 of the Act as a non-testamentary instrument creating interest in immovable property where the value is Rs.

An instrument of partition of immovable property requires registration as it declares an interest in immovable property provided, however, the value of the interest so declared is Rs. But a writing which merely states that there has in time past been a partition is not a declaration of will but a mere statement of fact and it does not require registration; Venkataraju v.

Shibnath, 13 Cal A lease for the life of the lessee is a lease for a term exceeding one year as it entitles the lessee to hold for more than one year if he lives so long. It is not a lease terminable at the end of a year or at the option of the lessor. It therefore requires registration; Parstrotam v. Nana, 18 Bom Madan Gopal, If it does, it requires registration, but not otherwise.

A receipt for payment of money under a mortgage other than an endorsement on a mortgage-deed issued by a mortgage mentioning not only the payment of the full mortgage amount but also the extinction of mortgage requires registration; Gurdial Singh v.
