When buying a property or home, one of the most difficult jobs is to check your builder’s credentials. So once you have finalized on a villa or apartment, the next thing is to do some sleuth work on the builder. You could start by verifying whether all the features, amenities, fittings and measurements shown in that glitzy brochure are actually there on ground. Next round of sleuth work involves going through the various permits that are required to start construction. Check whether the builder has an approved layout plan and has permission to start construction. Does he have environment clearance and is he building on land that is registered in his name – or does he just have building rights to the property.
All this might seem too much to take in, in one go, but if you do the checking in a step-wise manner, it is all do-able! You will also need to confirm the completion and occupancy certificates in case the building is already ready. In such a case, make sure all earlier electricity and water bills have been paid. Other things that are important include tax payments on the property; aside from the latest tax receipts, ask for a couple of previous ones too, so you know you are going to be in the clear on this.
