Hi

Does this building fall in forest zone? Builder says as usual that the title is clear.He has increased prices from 4850 to 6100 now.Plinth work not yet started.
He says that 60 % bookings are complete and prices are bound to go up.He promises to deliver building by 2012 December.Then he also says that there is 6 month grace period.

Is this price justified?Heard that this builder Nirmal Lifestyles has being delaying projects? Heard that his quality is awful?Is that true? Could any one throw some light on this developer?

  • I was seriously thinking of buying a 2BHK apartment in Omega or Turquise. I have spent my entire last weekend in visiting Nirmal properties in Mulund West and shortlisted the two projects (Omega and Turqoise).

    I visited the sales office too located at Nirmal Lifestyles mall. They mentioned the posession date of Omega as Dec 2016. They looked very promising. They were giving me better deal that fits within my budget. I was just two steps away from paying the booking amount to them until I read today all the posts of buyers.

    I am literally STUNNED after reading and knowing the very negative experiences of home buyers from Nirmal group, espicially delayed possession longer than TWO YEARS from the promised date! For me, that is too much!! A buyer would end up waiting upto 6 years before he/she gets his dream home.

    Now I am literally puzzled as to whether should I go and book the flat in Omega? I just want t make sure that I DO NOT end up getting possesssion after five to six years from now (i.e. 2019/20).


    Please help with your responses!.

    Thank you

    This group is well known for delays of 5-10 yrs. and complete layout changes till you get possession.
    So I would suggest don't be too optimistic but be realistic and take a logical decision which is - not to book :).

And now there is change in layout plan also, flats booked with SUN Deck will have to give away there Decks (as Nirmal has to give make payment to Govt for SUN Decks as per new Govt. ruling) & also parking rates has been revised to 8 Lacs from 2.5 lacs.



    Hi

    I am also one of the buyers who booked in Amethyst in 2005 and after 8 years till date it is depressing to see that the construction is only upto 6 podium + 8 slabs. Not sure whether this will ever be completed.

    However would like to know what letter did they issue to you and when? Also would like to know when did you book and do you have any document stating parking is 2.5 Lacs? Will you pay 8 Lacs now?

    I had got a sale agreement registered in 2006, however, those days builders never used to put in the possession date and therefore it does not have one. I guess after the forest land issue was resolved, they mentioned the construction would complete by 2012 or 2013. Now they are saying it will be by Dec 2015. Even this looks unlikely. I am sure on this project, he is going into losses and therefore not keen on getting it done on priority. Cannot believe that this one will be completed only after 10-13 years after launch and that too if all goes well from now.

  • Amethyst and Zircon

    Recently obtained an update from Nirmal after pestering them (however not sure how genuine it would be!!!)

    Amethyst - have been informed that clearances have been obtained recently and the work has resumed. Expected completion time tentatively - Dec 2015.

    Zircon - construction is happening and demand notice is being sent. Expected completion time tentatively - June 2016.

    Given the history and reputation of Nirmal, I would like to read the given dates + 1 - 1.5 years further delay until the keys of the flat are handed over. So finally it could be Dec 2017.

  • Amethyst will be delayed beyond Zircon, as the construction technology being used in Amethyst is traditional (Brickwork) whereas in Zircon & Troqouise is May One.

    Nirmal now a days going around the world to lure NRIs, offering low base rate like 9090 psf.. but nothing available below 30th floor.. really...???
    Promoting Zircon & Turquoise.. They say construction in full swing & possession by Dec 2015 for Zircon.. Already finished 8th floor..

    One month back it was being offered 8989/ but check floor rise charges. They might have increased it to 63 instead of 36.

    My personal opinion is that rates will go down in coming months .Looking at inventory levels in mumbai, the unaffordable rates, high interest rates on loans, everything points to a correction :). fingers crossed!

  • Hello Navin,

    Yes I was told 2.5 Lacs in 2005/6 and now he is asking 8+ Lacs for the parking. Did you pay 8L for the parking. I did not as I am not sure when the building will be ready.
