Under Construction properties are available at cheaper rateas compared to ready possession properties. And if you are hunting a property for an investment purpose, then under construction property is the best suited for it. Since the property is ongoing, by the time it completes the price value of the property rises. And when you sell this property you will earn more than the price at which you bought it. Thus investment is worth the value in an under constructionproperty.
Let’s see in detail, what are the advantages of an under construction property?
- Affordable and easy payment
Under construction property is affordable as it gives the leverage of taking a home loan. The affordable here implies that it is easy from the payment perspective. When people buy an under construction property, some of them down payment of around the 20% of the total price of property and rest is paid by taking a loan (under various schemes). Payment for an under construction property can also be done in parts instead of taking loan, because it can be a construction linked payment. You can avail the benefits of various schemes in an under construction property as opposed to ready possession properties.
- Availability of Choice
You are free to make a location as well as floor choice in under construction property i.e. if you don’t a flat that is at 6th floor you have the choice of paying more and buy the best that you want. But this choice is not available in ready to move flats because if the property is at your favorite location and only 10th floor is available, then that’s the only choice left for you.
- Good price appreciation
The price appreciation potential of the under construction property is more than that of completed residential projects. As the ongoing residential projects have a reasonable amount of time remaining for the construction to get over there is a great scope of price appreciation due to infrastructural development and many others.
Instead of relying on the words and promises made by the developers, go through all the documents related to the ongoing property to check the Genuineness of the developer. Below mentioned are some documents that you should go through before investing in an under construction property to make it a peaceful investment.
- Land Lord Document:
Land lord document is the most important document that you should go through before proceeding for further details. It gives you a good knowledge about the mortgage, rights, obligations, title, ownership etc.
Always buy a property that has clear title deeds. Because there are many cases where the builders sell the property without having the ownership of that particular land or property and it is the buyer who suffers in the end. Many a times property land is under commercial, retail or industrial zone which is illegal, therefore check well the land use certificate to ensure that the property comes under residential zone. So, prior you buy anongoing property; check all the land record documents with the builder.
- Certificate of Commencement
To start the construction of any property, a ‘Certificate of Commencement’ is must. This certificate is issued by the development authorities or the town planning department of the city. And the Certificate of Commencement is only issued after the perfect validation of layout plans and titles. So, check this foremost to ensure that the builder has construction rights.
- Approvals for layout plans
Many builders are used to launch residential projects without the approvals for layout plan and present you a draft layout and assure you that the approved one’s will be coming soon. Many a times this draft layout undergoes lot of changes via inspection. And what you get is the one that are not up to your expectation.
- Check out the master plan of the area.
Always go through the master plan of the project to ensure that the future developments announced by the developers of the property. Master plan of an area can be easily obtained from development authority or town planning department.
The land should have No Objection Certificate to ensure that it is free from every legal issue and hence, it is safe for buying or investing purpose.
After the construction is finished check the following documents:
- CC (Completion Certificate)
Completion Certificateissued by Public Authorities, is to ensure that project is completed with the planned layouts and guidelines mentioned by the authority.
- OC (Occupancy Certificate)
After Completion Certificate, next is Occupancy Certificate which ensures that the project is completed from all the aspects of basic amenities such as, sewage Connection, water and power Supply etc.
Once you go through all this documents, you are ready to take possession, but there are still few documents left that you should check out before taking the possession. They are listed below,
- Sale Deed
Sale Deed defines the ownership of the property. In registrar’s office the developer will transfer the said apartment in your name and hence, you will get a sale deed.
- Possession Certificate
First ensure that you are fully satisfied with the property up to your expectations. Then only accept the possession certificate. Because once you accept this certificate without being satisfied with the flat it is you who will be responsible, not the builder.
- Maintenance Service Agreement:
Check MSA well before signing it, to ensure that it includes all maintenance charges like, electricity, water, common area, club house etc.
VAT and Service Tax on an ongoing property
A buyer of an under construction flat has to pay both VAT (Value Added Tax) and service tax for consuming the services that include power backup, intercom services, car parking etc. But if you buy a property that has carpet area less than 60 square meters than no service tax is applicable on such property. Thus, service tax varies based on the area and price of the property.
