One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:
Dear Burhan Bhai, Assalamalikum,
I had purchased the gaot from my nieghbour and performed qurbani in my name, This goat was brought by my neibour for himself but thereafter become seriously ill and had to be hospitalised and hence could not perform qurbani.

Bought goat from neighbor
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
Your Question: .Kindly clarify, whether, my qurbani was valid/Jais.
Respected brother, we assure that there is nothing in Shariah which prohibits a believer from buying or purchasing a sacrificial animal from ones neighbor!
If you bought the sacrificial animal from your neighbor, and sacrificed the animal for the Sake and Pleasure of your Lord..it is expected that you will have your due reward from your Lord for your act of worship, Insha Allah.
Allah Says in the Holy Quran Chapter 22 Surah Hajj verses 36-37:
36 The sacrificial camels we have made for you as among the Symbols from Allah: in them is (much) good for you: then pronounce the name of Allah over them as they line up (for sacrifice): when they are down on their sides (after slaughter), eat ye thereof, and feed such as (beg not, but) live in contentment, and such as beg with due humility: thus have we made animals subject to you that ye may be grateful.
37 It is not their meat nor their blood that reaches Allah: it is your piety that reaches Him: He has thus made them subject to you that ye may glorify Allah for His guidance to you: and proclaim the Good News to all who do right.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me alone. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
