The ostensible proprietor is not the genuine owner of a property. He just addresses himself out as a genuine owner to the outsiders. Such an ostensible owner has every one of the privileges of possession in a property without being its genuine owner.
According to the Transfer of Property Act,1882; when a person acts on the express or implied consent of a person who is interested in immovable property, the person who acts on such consent is the ostensible owner of the property. He has all the indicia of proprietorship like the option to title, ownership, archives and so forth he can move the property for thought to the transferee.
