According to the relevant laws of China, donations of property can be made regardless of whether they are immediate relatives. As long as the property is obtained legally and the donation is voluntary, the donation is effective without harming the interests of others and society.
Article 185 [Definition] A gift contract is a contract in which the donor gives his property to the recipient free of charge, and the recipient indicates that the gift is accepted.
First of all, when a gift is given to another person s real estate, a gift contract has been established, and both parties should fulfill the content stipulated in the contract, and cannot be revoked and changed at will.
If the recipient is in any of the above circumstances, the donor can revoke the gift, but the donor s right to cancel must be exercised within one year from the date when the reason for the cancellation is known or should be known.
Real estate is real estate. The law has stricter regulations on the transfer of real estate rights. The establishment, alteration, transfer and extinction of real property rights shall have legal effect upon registration in accordance with the law; without registration, there shall be no legal effect, except as otherwise provided by law. In addition, if the donated property needs to go through registration and other formalities according to law, it should go through the relevant formalities. Therefore, the donated real estate needs to be registered before it can take legal effect. Once registered, the donor cannot revoke the gift.
Gifts can be made regardless of whether they are immediate relatives or not. As long as the property is obtained legally and the donation is voluntary by both parties, the donation is effective without prejudice to the interests of others and society.
