    I have not bought yet. But I might since there are no options. Any solutions to kitchen in north. And North East cuts?

    For kitchen in North, there are some remedies but surely aren't enough to cut the losses. Also, there shall be kitchen below & above you in North which is again bad.
    For cut in NE, no solution, infact there is no solution at all for major prob in NE, be it major cut, kitchen, toilet or stairs in NE.

But, don't took me wrong asking this question. As I told, I am already move out from Delhi/NCR and don't know about my future to come back or not. When I bought this, i bought for staying purpose but during last few years situation got change. What you think, is this flat have major vaastu dosh? if yes, then i can think of selling it as well or based on your suggestions, ill effects can be cured completely. As per limited understanding of mine in this subject, all most all the flats are not completely as per vaastu. if i shown the layout before buying, will you recommend to buy with such solution or you suggest me to avoid?

    This can be simply concluded that since you are not gonna stay here, makes sense to sell it off & exit. This is not just on financial basis but staying in such house isn't going to give great results either. If you had shown this layout before, I would have asked to avoid this flat.

    So, sell off this flat as it serves both the purposes & when you finally decide to settle down, you can then buy a flat which is Vaastu +ve.

    Btw, in many cases if there is defect in SW or M.bed is in NW, the owner spends very less time at home. You can check this aspect out as an experiment.

    After reading these boards, I see many issues.

    Issues -
    Ground floor:
    Road in South
    Entrance in SW (gate and door)
    Bathrooms in N and NE in ground floor (he says they can stop using NE one only)

    First floor:
    Bathroom in NE (hard to stop using bc of kid)
    Bathroom in SW, Master bath. They say they never use it for anything

    His wife had a major health issue last year (now resolved) and their lives have been very hectic. He says they work really hard but see almost no rewards for it. They have lived in the house for 2 years.

    Should I tell him to move out of the house? Since it is rental and it seems like the key SW/NE corners are not very good, it would be better to move soon than jeopardize their health and well being.


    See, you yourself have mentioned the Vaastu doshas & given the impact which took place on your friend & his family. What's more, you even gave correct solution at the end. :)

    Btw, the poor results in career are also due to the stairs in East & more open space in South which makes the plot heavier on North & lighter in South. This acts as a weight on your leg, need to work harder even to cross short distance. Wife's health issue was due to NE toilet.

    So what are you waiting for man ? Do tell your friend to exit ASAP & being rented house, its so easy.

I agree with your points and I read it in the previous blogs that we need to patient to find the right property, I am completely praticing that. but I need your continuous support to figure out a right property for me. Now, I need to stay some more time in my rented premisis, i would like to hear it from you that is it good or if i can make it more better or I need to find new rented accomodation till the time I will not find the good choice to buy. seeking your advice for the attached layout. Its a duplex flat and stairs are just next to kitchen and on first floor you have a similar one bedroom with attached bathroom as exactly the layout on the ground floor and we have a tarrace on first floor on top of the kitchen. Please advice.

    There is major cut or rather complete non-existent NE & whatever small part is left, contains bath-toilet which is extremely bad. With this, the house is like headless body, completely lifeless.
    So due to major issue with NE, it is best to shift out.

    Remember, come what may, there should be no major flaw in energy axis which is NE-Brahmasthan (Centre)- SW.

    If anything amongst these 3 are damaged, it's serious flaw with no remedial solutions & hence best to keep away from such properties, be it residential or commercial.

    Will be living there for a year or so and want to minimize negative effects. Your help is much appreciated.

    Bedrooms should be ideally located in Southern & Western parts of the house, though for kids, East can also work. But in your case, there is not a single bedroom in South & Western side. The one which is towards South is in SE, which is not recommended as it leads to disharmony within the family, mostly amongst couples who occupy this room.

    The major flaw is kitchen in SW. This will never give you stability in whatever you do & all the good energy which should actually hold on here in SW is burnt due to kitchen. Add to it entrance in centre of South, which is again bad.

    Overall, this flat is not recommended, even if you are getting it for zero rental.

    I have attached the floor plan for an apartment we are looking to purchase. Kindly suggest your feedback. I have divided the plan into 3*3 matrix for your convenience.
    Thanks in advance :)

    The floor plan is quite tricky. There are good & there are some flaws. The most critical factor here is the entrance. South facing entrance, if any has to be on 4th house from SE after diving the side into 9 equal parts. Entrance in SE corner burns out all opportunities even before they reach you.

    In your case, the location of kitchen, living, terrace, M.bedroom, C.bed is indeed good. No issues related to NE but there is toilet in Brahmasthan.

    So due to bad entrance & toilet in brahmasthan (centre), it is best to avoid this flat.

    1) Which entrance is best or second best and which is completely NO case.
    2) Which side Kitchen is best or second best and which is completely NO case.
    3) Which side bedrooms are best or Second best and which side is completely NO Case.
    4) Same question for Toilets?
    5) if above conditions are met the best or second best, what else can be wrong which can lead to avoid recommendation of yours.

    Finally, once i validate the 5 mentioned points, I will seek your final approval after sending you the floor plan then only I make a final call to buy. Your support will be highly needed and appreciated.

    Hope this helps. Let me know in case of any queries.

    RA - pls clarify. Am I correct in assuming S of SE is acceptable per vasthu or should the position of door be away from corner (Agni moola) in South as shown in image?

    As mentioned above, South facing entrance door works only if it is located on 4th position from SE corner when you divide the South side in 9 equal parts. This is not the case in your shortlisted flat & hence best to avoid it. Also there is issue of toilet in centre of house.

    Hello RealAcres,

    your inputs please.

    Only east-west is not correct.
    For East facing, entrance has to be from NE to centre of East. Some mistakenly take even East facing in SE part as correct entrance which is wrong in reality.

    In case of west facing, there are only 2 options :-

    Divide West side in 9 equal parts & the gate/door has to be on 3rd or 4th house from NW.

    Hoping to hear soon.

    Thanks in advance

    If you consider only the flat, there are not major issues but as big terrace on West is part of the flat, it changes the equation.

    In your case, the good part remains the kitchen, m.bed, living & attached terrace to dining.
    The toilet attached to bedroom in North-West would have fallen in NW but with terrace, it falls in North part of the house. Hence, it is recommended that you keep raw sea salt here & change it every 15 days. Apart from this, use it only for bathing that too if unavoidable but this should not be used as toilet. It will be best if you can remove EWC altogether.

    Keep the balcony at living room open & place Tulsi vrindawan here in NE corner of balcony.

    You can place a copper swastika above the entrance door frame from outside in 4x4 inches in size & have a white color toran on the door. If possible, have the door in white or its shades.

    The big terrace in West should be covered to as much extent as possible & try to make it heavy either by putting lot of plants &/or furniture. Ensure that you don't have any water source on terrace like water fountain or water curtain. If possible, try to increase the floor height of this terrace more than the floor level of the flat. More or less, the colours used in the terrace should be whitish towards North side & brown towards West & South side.

    Let me know incase of further queries.

    Kitchen in North & major cut & toilet in NE. This is enough to reject the flat right away.
    Besides this, North facing entrance in NW part is not recommended either.
    So, avoid this flat, be it for purchase or for rent.

    Just 2 major things :-

    > Shift the pooja towards East side. This would mean change in location of door of the bedroom but that's fine. Location of bedroom door is not as important as location of pooja. So get pooja room shifted,

    > Place water-proof plywood on wall between toilet & kitchen on kitchen side.

    That's all. All the best. :)
