Checklist of Property Documents

Property Document
Property Document

Checklist of Property documents is very crucial step of property purchase process. Property transaction in India is document intensive exercise because of complex legal, statutory and regulatory framework. Based on queries received from my clients, i can conclude that approx 80% buyers don’t get complete property documents at the time of purchase. These buyers struggle at the time of sale of property. Another problem linked to property documents is that buyer or a seller is not aware why specific property document is required, whether it is required in original or not etc. To help readers of my blog, i have created a comprehensive checklist of property documents. I will keep updating this property documents list as and when required. Also i would like to add that some states in India require additional property documents which vary from case to case basis.

Sale Agreement is executed on UDS value of the property that is normally guidance value. A franking person should not be concerned about the value mentioned in the sale agreement. As you are executing a sale agreement of 10 lakh therefore 10 lakh will be mentioned in the agreement. You can execute a sale agreement of any amount and frank it for value of your choice. You may frank it from some other vendor.

I am purchasing a flat in a big housing project named as Wave City NH-24, Ghaziabad. To get loan from my EPF I need Non-encumbrance certificate. I have contacted the developer for this who told me that they will obtain it for me. Can this certificate be obtained by the company(Developer) on my behalf from the registrar or only I have to apply myself. I have only allotted unit no. and sector no. of the approved project as the details of the property(Flat). Are these details sufficient for seeking non-encumbrance certificate? If not, what details should I ask for from the developer of the project?

Encumbrance Certificate, you can also pull out if you have property details. Here Encumbrance Certificate is of the land on which builder is constructing the flats.

Details required from builder vary from project to project. Please check my posts in Real Estate category for general guidelines.

Hi Nitin,

First of all thank you so much for all of your useful advices. I have applied for a home loan from ICICI bank Virar branch Mumbai and got a sanction of Rs.22 lacs. My property agreement value is 21.5 lacs. Before giving me the sanction letter ICICI people did legal verification and Technical as well. After doing that they told me that the market value came as per their valuer is 28 lacs. Now ICICI loan agent is saying that bank will give me 100% of the agreement value since MV is bigger than agreement value. It sound good to me. But want to is it feasible? Is there any chance that at the time of disbursement they will change the terms? Also owner needs the check same day of registration. But ICICI is saying it will take at least 7 days for the disbursement check to come. Please advise.

It is not possible. You have to pool 20% of property value + Stamp Duty + Registration charges from your pocket.

Hi Nitin,
We have shortlisted a flat in Bangalore which is of landowners share. Documents related to flat allocation to owners and a partition deed among land owners is present. Will this partition deed empower the landowner to register the property to us? Land katha is A and has details of landowners. Bifurcation of khata and transfer to individual flats is yet to be done by builder. Is it OK to go ahead with this flat and get it registered to us by the landowner?

Kindly suggest.

Srinivas

I am assuming your property is independent house/villa. In this case, original JDA is required else you can request the owner to declare it as LOST by following legal procedure.

Thank You so much for this list Mr.Bhatia. It is indeed v useful. We have recently built flats under a JDA with a builder. The project was completed last month. Could you tell us:

1.What documentation should we ensure from the builder at this point, before we part ways, in order to enable us sell the flat if required in the future? We do have the original property documents , the JDA and copies of plan approvals.

2.There is no separate construction agreement with the builder. Would that be required if we were to sell the flat in the future?

Hi Nitinji,
Do all banks follow the same legal procedures for approving loans or sbi loans are legally much safer than other banks? Are there any fixed guidelines by rbi regarding it or it depends on bank to bank.

SBI is relatively safer due to stringent legal process. Legally bank does not take any responsibility for the title of the property. A property is like a collateral against loan. There are NO Guidelines issued by RBI in this regard.

Hi Nitin,

I am considering purchase of a villa from builder in bangalore, sarjapura. We see that there is a kharab (nala) in the middle of the layout (150 feet from my villa) , there is a park through which this nala passes through…the main approach road goes over a bridge over this nala. I also see this nala have no water flow as such..infact it is only withn the bounds of the layout..does not exist outside of it from what i can observed..is this normal ?

Some parts of the layout are fenced with 10 feet iron slabs as opposed to compound – the iron slabs usually outline private properties – developer claims they are in talks to purchase the other land as well. is this fine ?

the layout seems to be approved by BMRDA/ Anekal planning authority and also has been approved by SBI and Axis on their website.

I can share more details on a private channel.

Thank you for providing a great blog to clarify this complicated issues.

You have not mentioned whether he ever showed original documents to you. If you never saw original documents then there is a possibility that he lied to you about the same means that he never had original documents.

As during the course of transaction, the original documents are lost and it devalues the property therefore you may apply for cancellation of agreement or on the basis of misrepresentation of facts as i explained in 1st para. You may ask for 100% refund.

Domicile of 15 years is required. The price a such property is less because most of these properties are disputed due to GR (Government Resolution) – 2007. These flats are for family with income less than Rs 20,000 per month. Moreover, It is mandatory for such societies to reserve 20% of flats for SC/ST but it was not done. I will not suggest you to go ahead.

I had booked a flat in a Co-Op Housing Society in Pune. The
project was executed – by 1st registering a Co-Op Housing Society with some
members and then the Society bought the land for the project. Once the Land is
bought (after the completion of the necessary legal procedure), the Society has
built the Flats on the land.

For my Flat, I have paid all the payment contributions on my
own and DID NOT take any Home Loan. For those who availed the home loan, they
done a Notarized registration of the flat before taking the home loan.

So for my case the Society has ONLY given the two documents –

a) Society Share certificates
b) Flat Allocation Certificate mentioning the flat areas
details

So I did NOT get the Index II and the Society has mentioned
that there is NO need to do a registration (by paying the stamp duty) or Notary
for any Sale Deed as the land was in the Name of the society and its have given
the above 2 documents.

So I wanted to know, with Only the above 2 certificates –

1) Would I be the Legal Owner of my Flat in the
Society?

2) In furture, do you Foresee any issues with the Flat ownership or any disputes

3) Would there be any issues when I plan to sell my property in future (in terms of missing documents / Registration / Notary) ?

Kindly advise me.

Reply to  Kumar

A cooperative society in Maharashtra is governed by Maharashtra Cooperative Societies Act. Under the act, the society share certificate is valid and legal transfer of the title of the property. A Notarized registration is as good as NO Registration. Only a registration in sub-registrar office by paying stamp duty and registration charges is the valid conveyance deed. Therefore, under Maharashtra Cooperative Societies Act, the property registration is NOT REQUIRED.

On the other hand, in Oct 2011 the supreme court of India passed a judgement that only registered conveyance deed or sale deed will be considered as a valid and legal mode of transfer of title of the property.

In my opinion, the ruling of Supreme Court of India supersedes all the judgments of lower courts, existing acts and laws therefore you should register the property in Sub Registrar Office by paying stamp duty and registration charges.

Bank is now asking for Society Tax paid receipt, which the Society is not paid, as is the case with most of the socities in Kharghar. The reason being there is dispute between CIDCO & Kharghar Gram Panchayat over Tax collection due to services provided.

Now under these circumstances, what is the remedy, as the funding is done by all Banks in Kharghar.

OC is good to go provided it is not a conditional OC and your tower/floor no is included in the same. You need not worry on CC.

Hi Nitin,
I had booked a 2BHK apartment in Pune on 29th July 2014 from a reputed builder . This project was supposed to have 5 buildings of 12 floors with 6 flats on each floor plus one commercial building. The total area of the project is around 5 acre.The booking was open only for 2 buildings. They had promised to give possession by July 2014 and said the agreement will be made by in 2-3 weeks. However agreement was done on 16th January 2013 only.
They didn’t give any copy of the agreement to read and got me sign on the agreement. the possession date was mentioned as March 2015. The commercial building (Shopping complex) was also changed to a residential building. I didn’t have any other option but to sign since the rates had already increased by Rs 400 psft by then.

The builder kept extending the possession date and saying the possession will be given in June 2016. However, he is not willing to give even this in writing. He says that the delay happened due to changes in environment clearance laws that came in force in year 2013, after project was started. When I inquired about amenities promised in the agreement, they said only 30-40% of amenities will be given at the time of possession. Rest will be given when the entire project is finished which may take at least 4-6 years.

When I inquired from sales posing as a buyer, they said the possession will be given in December 2016.

They are also changing the layout of the project and saying the remaining buildings will be of 19 floors.

I am thinking of filing a case in consumer/civil court. My queries are :
1. is there any time limit within which builder has to register the agreement after taking the initial booking amount?

2. I read that EC notification in Maharashtra was done in 2006. Is my builder lying about the EC status?
3. Can builder change the amenity space location, size of the buildings shown in the agreement/advertisement?
4. Can I legally refuse to take possession before all the amenities are provided?

1. There is no time limit until unless specified in the agreement.
2. You may clarify from builder
3. He can change provided he has revised approved layout from local town planning authority else it is not allowed and construction is illegal in case deviation is more than 5%.
4. Not exactly based on amenities. You can demand OC. If OC is not available then you can refuse possession.

You do not know what they have wriiten in this. To day so many gadjects are available. With the help of even a chinease cell phone you could have recorded even his owrds, . Probably he woould have said I will not give copy, or why do you need a copy ? You should have immediately caautioned your self -why , or asked him to give avalid reason . Now you are at his mercy. He will say this is what you have agreed. Any way you ask him at least now – to give you a copy of the agreement, study in dtail, you can only ask for what you have signed. I am sorry for my words. But honestly even I was fooled by Nationalised banks when I had gone for a car loan. They had taken ~ 60 signtures – with out even filling up. Later I realised my blunder. From then on I am very carefull. I went for a carloan with ICCI bank who had tie up with hundai.They promise me a car loan on godd terms. I bluntly told them to give me a copy of the loan agreement ,I will take hoem read, then only I will sign. I had simply refused. Then as a compromise they gave me the copy to read it there it self , gave me time of 2 hours, I had taken a copy of it im my cell it self. got all my doubts cleared, I forced them some changes which were against me . Then signed it. Though i paid the loans promptly This was an eye opener. So I am once again sorry . We are all only educated fools. In money matter only papers will speak. Why you run to sign.

The problem is that the system is not a fool proof system. Banks do check the property title but don’t take any responsibility of property title. A home loan is as good as personal loan only and home act as a collateral with the bank against the loan.

Perfect Title – (one who is selling you is the owner of the property)

These things are the major aspects in Bangalore. If you are buying a property located closer to a lake, be doubly sure that your property is not built on a lake bed.

if a builder is offering OC (occupancy certificate) still make sure that he has rain water harvesting, sewage treatment plant and at least 13 meters of set back all the 4 sides of the property. or else possibility is that BBMP may refuse to issue OC later on. (your property is just like any illegal building, without an OC, don’t go by builders who say “chalta hein” !!)

No problem . You give him a legal notice to return the origional documents , also mentioning the amounts you had paid. Mean time with the details of the xerox copy apply for a copy of the document with the registrar office ,. For a certain fee you will get the certified copy of the registered document, which is as good as origional.
You should not have given the origional to him. Now also apply for a ENCUMBERANCE CERTIFICATE witht he registrar office. It is also possible he maight have pledged these documents in a bank & taken a loan. Do not panic – this is possible.
