Default Highland Garden-Thane(Siddhi Group)

We have booked 2-BHK flat in Highland Garden Thane.The project is still not under-construction,but construction will start soon,
Problem is that we cant do the stamp duty+ragistration for property up to 2-3 months, and builder is demanding 15% amount within 15 days from booking,even the bank will not approve home loan,as stamp duty is still pending.

please join this thread and provide me more info about this developers and also what can we do to handle such situation,
Does anybody own flat from this group.



Thanks

Hi.. Shubhashu,

First welcome to IREF, I don't know anything about this builder and group. But they have a Website for this project and it is recommending some banks, did you see that?

Do you know how much psf they are asking now? And what plans do they offer, their website has crappy pictures without the square footage.

Don't pay 15% and take refund of booking amount. You are not going get the flat in next 5 years time.

If I may ask what is the source of your comment or do you just not like the way it sounds?
Please refrain from passing such loose comments as someones hard earned money has been put into the flat.
Being a buyer myself in the project, I can tell you that registration took the normal amount of time it usually takes and so far the progress although abit behind schedule is happenning on site none the less and am still expecting to receive possession within the stipulated period as told to me by the builder which is acceptable to me as of now.
Also since they have a huge landbank in the area and Gardens is just one of the first projects being made there and also a newly launched Highland Crest right next to it, they would try not to delay their deliveries so as to not harm their reputation and future launches.
I think Shubhushu should take their doubts to the builder and negotiate with him as they seem to be reasonable enough. Do let me know how it goes.
All the Best!

My take on this is from a lay man's perspective this does seem to be a tricky issue. Usually disbursements on an under construction project are based on the progress of work so if you are saying there has no work been done that is what sounds fishy and 15% is not a small amount for middle class buyers like us. I have the foll suggestion- Do check if any financial institution has approved this property. In this case they usually do all the pre work which shd be done by the buyer. If yes then its ok if not then also just ask 2-3 financial institutions and gauge their reputation and you may know the real picture. Also under normal circumstances since the rates are always rising builders do give back the token amount not because they are honest but because they can sell the same deal at a higher price to another buyer. You are doing the right thing by asking as many people as possible and not falling into a deeper pit by paying the builder just because he has asked for the money.
