Before you buy a flat

Points to be considered before buying a flat:

Check whether the details of approved plan have been displayed at the site.

Check whether the flat has been constructed as per the approved plan.

Check whether the promoter/power of attorney has a right to transfer the undivided shares of land.

Verify whether the entire undivided shares of land have been transferred by the land owner/promoter/power of attorney to you.

Check whether the completion certificate issued by the CMDA ( or local Municipality ) has been obtained after the completion of the building

“Below are few of the important things, one should know before planning to purchase a new property. A handy and simple property purchase checklist one should consider before taking decisions on buying going for a real estate deal in Mumbai..”( some points are common to other locations )

  • 1) Check for rate of property currently going on in that location by asking few people/agents etc so that you will not land up putting up more money in the deal.
  • 2) Check if the home you purchasing has well maintained society registered properly so that most of the legal matters are taken care and you are at lower risk of being cheated.
  • 3) Check both Original documents and also previous sale docs (if any) before giving token money for the deal.
  • 4) Check if that property can get Loan from banks, if not why ?
  • 5) If property is very old (Example: 10 to 12 years) you can benefit and save money during paying stamp duty payment to be given. So pull out assessment letter for Municipal Corporation for same.
  • 6) Check if the space area for Carpet, built up OR super built up.
  • 7) Check if it CIDCO approved, or alternately if property is old then proper CC, Plan Copy and saat bara utara (7-12 utara) documents there with seller.
  • 8) Check if all previous dues has been paid like (electric bill, yearly municipal charges for property, society charges) etc.
  • 9) Ask your advocate to calculate required Stamp Duty and Registration Fees with advocate fees and be ready.
    10) Property clearance note and no Objection certificate (NOC) from society is must before you register any property.
  • 11) Do not try saving Stamp Duty charges as during litigation in most cases you cannot fight legally with it.
  • 12) Its always a good idea to meet the society secretary of the property (flat) you purchasing. This will help you know some legal society pendings, share certificate related, maintenance related and NOC related to the seller.
  • 13) Check the important documents before you give the token amount for purchasing that property, some of the documents are Society NOC, Name of electricity bill and Property tax receipt ( Known as ‘Gharpatti’ in Hindi), Name of the maintenance receipt, All the previous sequence of purchase/sell of that property agreement, Full plan copy (floor plan) of that building and the wing you planning the purchase, Check if the legal government stamps are seen clearly on same.
  • 14) Most important : Spend on the 100 rupees stamp paper and get the signature, left thumb print with photo attached on the seller before giving the token amount and make the terms very clear on registration date and what if for some reasons the deals gets cancelled.
  • 15) Check if the property was already mortgaged before and if the things are already cleared and settled with the final note of settlement. One best way is to check for all the sequence of original documents of the flat you purchasing.
  • 16) If you are the first time buyer of say this is your first property to be purchased, keep some extra cash handy as you might need it to miscellaneous expenses like post registration, society charges to be paid extra to builder and some renovations etc.

Things to ask to Builder before buying property

  • Ask if builder has Title clear papers for property on which flats are built. Easy way is to ask for IOD (Intimation Of Disapproval) and CC (Commencement Certificate) which makes it clear that the property you are purchasing is built on undisputed land and is BMC approved.
  • Ask if he is ready to give Completion Certificate which is required during registration and stamp duty process and also during resale in some cases. This Certificate if and important proof of BMC clearance on building permissions.
  • Ask if any well known banks are tied up with builder, If banks and financial institutes like HDFC, ICICI BANK, GIC etc are already tied up with builder it is a good sign of saving yourself from non well known and fraud builders.
  • Always take the first step by asking for sample flat and building plan, This will give you the look and feel of flat and the amenities and quality of tiles and other items used in kitchen and bathroom etc. Also ask and see the floor plan that gives the idea about surrounding and spacing.
  • Ask for, if any additional charges above the charges they show to you like any legal fees, parking fees etc which sometimes is not said in first meetings.
  • Ask when is the project getting completed and which month is the handover of property ? How will they Charge till then because this will attract PRE-EMI (A kind of interest charged for part payment of the loan borrowed from bank) this is an extra charge and not same as EMI. Get dates in written and terms if builder not able to give on time.
  • Ask the builder about the Carpet area and Total super built up area and what will be written in Agreement. Also check the height and directions of the flat.
  • Ask what all utilities and facilities are in built provided upon sale like Fans, Furniture in kitchen, Home UPS/Inverter etc.
