Purchasing a property has always been a nerve-wracking task. The changing rates of real estate, new property tax rules and several other changes in the industry make it tough to both, purchase or sell a property. When it comes to the real estate industry, right documentation plays an important role. You must analyse all aspects of documentation before you invest in legal properties. The residential projects in Thane, Mumbai are hot properties in the current market. So if you intend to purchase a home here, ensure you check these documents.
Sale Deed: It is the main legal document which serves as the proof of sale and the transfer of ownership from the seller to the buyer. It should be mandatorily registered and the buyer should check the terms and conditions thoroughly before the sale is executed.
Mother Deed: Regarded as the parent document, it traces the origin ownership from the start, in case the property was owned by different owners, over different periods of time. It helps the further sale of the property and establishes new ownership. In case of new properties like Neelkanth Woods in Thane by Neelkanth Realty, you do not need a mother deed.
Building approval plan: The jurisdiction under which the area falls, sanctions a building approval plan, without which a builder cannot legally construct the building. These plans are sanctioned based on zonal classification, floor area ratio, plot depth etc.
Commencement certificate: In case of under construction properties, the builders must acquire a commencement certificate from the local authorities after the site is inspected. This document states that the projects fulfils the necessary criteria and allows the builder to commence construction, failing which he must pay due penalties.
Completion Certificate: This certificate is issued by the municipal authorities and it denotes that the building has complied with all its rules such as the height of the building, the distance from the road etc. and that it is constructed as per approved plans.
Occupancy certificate: The builder must submit the occupancy certificate issued by municipal authorities after the construction is completed. This is issued after the local agencies inspect the premises, marking it a safe sale. Make sure you ask for your occupancy certificate after buying flats for sale in Thane.
Tax Receipt: Ensure you ask your builder for the legal tax receipt. Failure to present one can authorize the government to impose a certain percentage of penalties every month on the buyer.
Power or Attorney: Another important document, a new owner can choose to nominate a trusted power of attorney which gives the latter the right to preside over the property matters (purchase or sale) in the absence of the owner.
Purchase Agreement: This document should include everything you were promised by the builder and allows you to hold the builder legally accountable in case of any discrepancies. Thane builders like Neelkanth Group, Lodha Group, Piramal Group etc. have great track records for honouring verbally made commitments in their purchase agreements.
