RERA empowers buyer.Earlier,buyer's property buying decision was hit in the absence of RERA but now seeing in upward trend in residential property.
It seems RERA has been successful to bring confidence in residential market even in pandemic corona virus lockdown.
What is RERA?
RERA stands for Real Estate Regulatory Authority.It aims protecting the interest of property buyer in real estate sector and to establish an arbitrating
mechanism for speedy dispute redressal. Project delivery delays, property pricing, quality of construction, title and other changes are the issues which
RERA regulates and addresses the issues in an efficient and transparent manner. RERA empowers both Builder or Developer and Buyer, as most of
the things were favoring Builder. RERA brought many norms that will protect buyers from unfair builders malpractices.
Takeaways of RERA
Standardized Carpet Area
Earlier the carpet area on which the property price calculated was not defined.Every builder/developer had their own method of calculation of the
carpet area.Means for the same property the builder would calculate the carpet area of 1400 sq ft and the other would calculate the carpet area of
1500 sqft ,Hence there was no parity in carpet area in the absence of RERA.However,this has now been defined by the RERA Act,and the same
formula would be applied by all builders/developers for the calculation of the carpet area.
Subsequently, it will impact property prices as price calculates on the basis of the property carpet area.Builders compute the price of the property as
Cost of the property=Carpet Area x Rate per sq ft
Rate of Interest on default
Earlier,In case of default on payment by the buyer ,the interest to be paid by the builder to builder was higher on the contrary if builder delays the
possession of property ,the interest to be paid by the builder to the buyer was less.Means there was no parity in the interest to be paid for both parties.
RERA defines the interest to be paid by both parties will be the same for both parties.RERA has been successful to bridge the gap between two.
Reduces the Risk of Builder Insolvency/Bankruptcy
Usually A builder has many projects to be built which have to build simultaneously. Earlier,Builders were free to divert the fund raised from Project A to
fund the construction of project B. Now,This would not be possible as RERA defines norms which help to reduce the risk of Builder Insolvency
.According to RERA,the builder is liable to deposit 70% of the amount realized in for the project in a separate bank account.Builder can withdraw from
such account only on the basis of completion of project,which will be certified by a civil engineer,architect and a chartered accountant in practice.
Compensation over False Promises
RERA empowers buyers, If there is mismatch over builder commitments and actual property, the buyer has an option to withdraw from the property,
RERA ,buyer is entitled to full refund of the amount paid as advance or otherwise along with interest and claim compensation.
Right to information
The buyer will be entitled to have all the information related to the property,layout plan,execution plan,stage wise completion status etc.

most of home buying decisions.Fortunately Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana give a hope over it and many have been benefited from Awas Yojana.
