Few important things buyer should know before buying under-construction property in Maharashtra.

The biggest risk in buying an under-construction property is a delay in possession. A home buyer should always opt for projects registered with the Real Estate Regulatory Authority (Rera), which was aimed at bringing transparency in real estate deals. It is worth noting that the model Act and the apex court judgment giving home buyers equal right with the other creditors have made the under-construction house attractive. Here under maharera buyer has right to claim for possession delay.

(2) Developers Reputation in the market

Buyer should check the past delivered projects review from the market. Before you buy a property, it is advisable to check whether the builder is financially sound or not. A home buyer should avoid developers that got into trouble with other projects. You should check the maharera complaints not registered under that developers & if registered check the status of complaint whether it is resolved by developers or not. Furthermore, a buyer should find for how long the builder has been in business, and also keep in mind that chances of delay are higher in bigger projects.

(3) Builder-Buyer Agreement clause

It is crucial to read thoroughly the papers of the builder-buyer agreement and ensure that the completion time of the project mentioned in no uncertain terms. Plus, a buyer should verify whether the builder will adequately compensate the buyer in case of delay in completion of the project. Look closely the clause pertaining to delivery or possession date.Buyers should aim to invest in a property which is already 40-50 per cent complete and shows visible construction progress.

(4) Location Development

Rera guidelines clearly state that any alteration can only be undertaken with a buyer’s consent. If changes have to be made to either the design or the layout of the property, the approval of two-thirds of the buyers in the project must be obtained.

(7) Bank loans

Here, banks evaluate the developer and the project before sanctioning the loan. In an approved project, lenders will ensure the project is completed and the realtor doesn’t default.Also, approved projects may subsequently be disapproved for new buyers if there is a substantial delay or construction is not in accordance with the approved plans or a serious court case is filed against the realtors.
