I've purchased a flat in the Ruby Isle Apartment at Royal Palms, Goregaon Mumbai. The 'Agreement for Sale' that Royal Palms would like a buyer of an apartment in the Ruby Isle Apartment to sign states that the apartment being sold is a 'Service Apartment'. Further, that the buyer agrees to user the said premises only as a 'Service Apartment' and for no other purpose and in consonance with Municipal Rules.

The agreement does not define 'Service Apartment'.

I'd like to understand what the difference between such a 'Service Apartment' and a normal Residential Apartment is? Why is Royal Palms terming it as a 'Service Apartment'? Does a 'Service Apartment' also confer a full and complete title to the flat being purchased as a normal residential apartment in a housing cooperative will?

The agreement does state that Royal Plams will execute a deed of lease for 999 years in facour of the Housing Coocerative society that the residents of a building may form. However, they will do so only after all the flats in the building have been sold by Royal Palms. Does the lease have any bearing on why its being termed as a 'Service Apartment'?

Any response will be appreciated.

  • Hii Jazzy888, even I have bought a 2BHK there and not got possesion yet. I went to the site a month back and the whole structure is plastered from inside but the tiling and the interiors are yet to be done. I think we should form a group of people who have bought an Apartment in Ruby Isles so we can be on the same page. You can email me at my email address if you like to talk about it

  • Noone has got possesion yet, the work still going on and it can take anywhere from 6 months to 1 year depending upon the speed. I have heard the owner of Royal Palms Mr Dilawar Nancy sits in his Royal Palms Office from 10 - 5 everyday so he can give the exact details
