Being a first time buyer I am unsure about how to decide on a no-name builder. I have seen a flat which I like and can get possession of by March. It fits my budget and is an area that I prefer. But the builder is not a renowned builder or anything. So my questions are:
1)What should I look for to make sure its a safe bet?
2) Do I consult with a property lawyer?
3) Should I ask to see their approvals? If yes what do I ask for?
4) What are the basic requirements that a property MUST have?

Please help all you experienced buyers on the forum! All input is welcome and much appreciated.

  • 1. Ask to get the listing of buildings they have finished earlier.
    2. Try to find buyers of the same apartment project and discuss with them.
    3. Ask details of all approvals.
    4. Try to get a loan even if you have money to pay...
    5. Hiring a property lawyer is always better.

    hope this helps.
  • Lawyer will charge you 3-4K max, and will save you from trouble.

    And only buy ready to move.
  • check BMRDA approval-- if no walk out

    new builder/old or small/big does not make any difference as soon as you have BMRDA approval
    check on what state the BMRDA approval is and what units/plots are allowed to sell
    Make sure builder is not selling illegal property like--builder has approval for 5 floors but he might have constructed illegal pent house

    and use your common sense like,, if you are getting any property with below market price and then it smells some bad thing into the deal
