The new MahaRERA rule help home buyers to track project status


MahaRERA recently issued a circular requiring promoters to provide different types of certificates. These certificates would be from engineers, architects and chartered accountants to the banks. With a copy to the real estate regulatory authority before withdrawing any amount received from the buyers, stating that the payments are in proportion to the percentage of construction completed. The amounts received from the allottees deposited to a separate account.

MahaRERA will upload these certificates provided by the architect and engineer to its website for the convenience of home buyers. This will mean that the home buyers can see the exact status of the project. For example, the amount of construction completed and costs incurred. Previously, the promoter had to receive certificates, and it was only necessary to submit a self-declaration to the bank.

Promoters must also verify their account separately within six months of the end of each fiscal year by a CA. They must also submit an account statement duly certified and signed by the CA. The audit by CA will confirm that the funds raised for a specific project have been used for that project and that the withdrawals correspond to a fraction of the percentage of work completed. This new rule applies to both ongoing, new and upcoming projects.

More financial transparency

The promoters are, in accordance with section (2)(l) D of section 4 of the Act, obliged to deposit 70% of the money raised for the project of the buyers in a separate account in the specified bank. This money used only to cover construction costs, land and other construction costs. To ensure that withdrawals are proportional to the percentage of project work performed. The developer must provide certificates from the engineer, architect and CA (Chartered Accountant) to MahaRERA, other than the bank, at each withdrawal until the project completion certificate is received.

The 2017 Maharera Circular allowed the organizer to make only one self-declaration every quarter. Instead of issuing these three certificates each time on every withdrawal from the bank account. Lawyer Anil D Souza, secretary of the Maharashtra State Bar Association, said, “MahaRERA has not only brought more transparency to the financial aspect of project management. But has also placed a greater responsibility on the promoters along with the engineer, the architect, and CA certifying at each step. Previously, home buyers were unable to know the status of their money, once they have invested in a project. But with this regulation, the authorities can regulate and track the dishonest practices of builders.

EMI for Homebuyers may inflate due to stuck registries of flats in Noida

Along with delayed housing projects city buyers have got a new problem. As registries of thousands of apartments stalled, homebuyers began receiving messages from banks demanding an additional 2% per annum at fixed prices. Both state-run and private banks are sending the notice.

These notices from the bank indicate the reason for the delayed registration of the apartment. They referred to certain matters mentioned in the letter of sanction, which was signed between the buyer and the bank at the time of the home loans.

Under these conditions, the buyer of the apartment must present the documents in connection with the conclusion of the sales deeds no later than 60 days after being offered the possession letter by the developer. If no document submitted, the buyer must pay an additional interest of 2% per year in addition to the applicable rates. As the bank will charge mandatory interest rates and increase the balance on a monthly basis. The non-payment of these fees may affect the buyer’s credit rating in the future.

Buyers of apartments in the sectors dedicated to the development of Sports City have suffered the most. Many buyers who sent new messages approached the district’s central bank manager to intervene.

Issues between Noida Authority and Private developers 

Narendra Kumar, central government official, bought a 3 BHK apartment in Civitech Stadia in sector 79 in March 2017, said. “Several months ago, I received a notice from my bank that I should pay additional interest. Since I did not submit sale deeds after receiving possession of the flat, they quoted part of the agreement letter. Kumar paid Rs 68 lakhs for his apartment for a loan of Rs 58 lakhs. Kumar monthly EMI of Rs 56,500 can be increased by at least Rs 5,000 if an additional 2% interest applies.

Narendra Kumar received a loan five years ago, said he was responding to the notice and awaiting a decision soon. The buyers of the Sports City project were offered their own apartments. They have been living in them with their families for the past three years. However, due to issues between the Noida Authority and private developers who develop residential complexes in sectors 101, 78, 79, 150 and 152, the execution of sales contracts or registrations has been delayed.

Even after paying the land premium, the developers of the Sports City project are not able to sign a tripartite agreement with the Authority and the buyer, as they have not built the infrastructure or sports facilities in accordance with the rules.

Vedas Ratna, manager of the Lead bank, said that a meeting will take place in the near future. We are talking to more banks and we will accept applications from affected buyers in a meeting with the district magistrate. We may need to contact the Reserve Bank of India for further instructions.

Check the applicable property rules set by the government so that you are well informed about the necessary legal procedures.

According to real estate experts the best term for a home loan is around 15-20 years.

Property type-

It is important to decide the type of property in which you are investing.The price of properties varies and depends on size, location, age and type of property.

Investing in a ready to-move-in apartment or an existing apartment is a great way to generate monthly income. Since you can rent them out easily after buying the property. On the other hand, under construction projects will cost much less than the cost of completed projects in the city.
