  • Builder asking interest for delay in loan disbursement

    I bought a flat in Pune.
    The following are the payment breakup done by me.
    1. 26th Jun 2020 (Rs. 200000) as a booking paid
    2. 28th Jul 2020 (Rs. 365000) Stamp duty registration paid
    3. 28th Jul 2020 (Rs. 377660) part of down payment paid
    4. 06th Aug 2020 (Rs. 265000) part of down payment paid

    Only loan disbursement was pending.

    A sanctioned letter is already generated and provided to the builder.

    The sales agreement was done on 07th Aug 2020.

    This is ready to move property. The contact person (Mr. X) from the builder side told me that there is initial work is pending in the flat. This will be done within 2 weeks of time.
    We accepted this and asked and pointed some of the defects in the property (like color, broken tiles, gapes, broken parts, loos fitted windows, AC holes, etc…). Mr. X accepted these defects and promised me to fix them.
    As usual, some defects are solved immediately withing 2 weeks. But most of the issues are not resolved. I had to follow-up for every small-small thing. This lost my confidence in them. It took almost 2 and a half months. During this time Mr. X kept asking me to disburse the loan amount. But I already lost hope in them and asked them to finish the work and I will initiate the disbursement.

    I have already paid all processing fees and only mortgage activity is pending.

    Today is 10th Oct 2020. According to Mr. X, all work is done now. But we have already traveled to my hometown for some family emergency. I told them that I can only come back to Pune by one week later which is 19th Oct 2020 due to (COVID+ home quarantine) difficult situation. On 19th Oct 2020, I can go to Pune and Initiate the process. As per the bank person, it will take at least 2 to 3 days for disbursement.

    Now Mr. X is saying that you are unnecessarily delaying disbursement from day 1. And for that, you will have to pay the interest for the balance amount or cancel the flat (I guess, at this time canceling the flat will also cause me some fine/penalty).

    In this situation, I am not willing to cancel the flat. Not willing to pay any interest or penalty. And due to the situation cannot go to Pune till 19th Oct 2020.

    Kindly advise.

    Can you name the Builder & the Project? A thread may already exist on the Project and there could be other members facing similar issues. If a thread on the Project already exits, this thread would then be required to get merged with the original existing thread.
