FAQs

Q.
What is the difference between built up area, super built up area, and carpet area?

Carpet Area: Carpet Area of a property is defined as the net usable area from the inner sides of one wall to another. Carpet Area comprises of the carpet area of the demised premise, toilet areas within the demised premises, AHU room/s within the demised premises and dedicated service areas for the demised premises. Built-up Area (BUA): BUA consists of carpet area, area covered by inner and outer walls and additional areas mandated by the authority such as flower beds, dry balcony etc. Super Built-up Area (SBUA): SBUA consists of BUA and the proportionate area under the common spaces of a building like lobby, staircases and elevators.

Q.
Does it make sense to buy a home now?

That depends on one's actual objectives and level of need. If one is a first-time home buyer, attempting to time the market makes little sense. Any correction will be a brief phenomenon, and prices inevitably rise again. This is a risky game that only investors should play.

Q.
What are the risks involved in residential property investment?

The risk factor in real estate investment lies in the possibility of buying at a higher price and having to sell at a lower one in a depressed market. It is also risky to try time the market to discern the 'best' time to invest. Much like in the stock market, it is impossible to predict the point of lowest ebb in the real estate market. The danger in delaying investment too long is two-fold - firstly, one may lose out on the best properties, and secondly, the market may pick up ahead of one's predictions, meaning that the lower rates may no longer be available.

Q.
What are the possible returns of investing in commercial versus residential property on rent?

The rental yield for commercial property is usually 9-12%. In contrast, the yield for residential property is much lower at 3-4%.

Q.
What are the different ways of investing in commercial property?

There are three ways to invest in commercial real estate - directly buy office space from a developer, buy shares of a commercial developer from the stock market, or invest in a real estate fund focused on commercial real estate. As the quantum of investment is usually huge, the prospective buyer needs to take more informed decisions.

Q.
What are the risks associated in buying a flat on Power Of Attorney (POA) basis?

Purchasing a flat on a POA basis is not permitted.

Q.
What are the factors to keep in mind while investing in residential property for capital appreciation?

The fundamental aims of any residential property investment should be to maximise yield as well as capital gains and to reduce the risk as far as possible. To illustrate, renovating and embellishing a property makes it eligible for a higher rent, which means maximised yield. Property investment aimed at capital gains involves buying real estate cheap and selling it at a higher rate, thereby maximising one's ROI. An astute investor will also buy a well-located property at a high price if the rental market is booming, since this makes it possible to rent it out for as long as it takes price to rise again.

Q.
What exactly do we mean by a Free Hold flat? What are the advantages and disadvantages, if any?

A freehold property flat is one where there is a whole and sole owner/s, ownership is full and unconditional and there is no lessor / lessee involved.

Q.
Which are the instruments that attract the payment of Stamp Duty?

The instruments like Agreement to Sell, Conveyance Deed, Exchange of property, Gift Deed, Partition Deed, Power of Attorney, settlement and Deed and Transfer of lease attract Stamp Duty on market value of the property.

Q.
What are all the important documents one should check before buying any property?

While purchasing a property, you have to look at the approved layout plan, approved building plan, ownership documents, carryout title search, etc.

Q.
Is a POA revocable?

Yes, a POA can be either revocable or irrevocable, depending on what sort of a POA one has made.

Q.
Is there any way by which I can claim exemption from tax on capital gain?

Several options are available for saving capital gains. For example, in the first place invest in a residential house property or a flat to make investment so as to see that capital gains are exempted. Likewise, if a person were to make the investment in REC or NHAI bonds then also he enjoys complete exemption from the long-term capital gain payable by him in respect of capital gains due.

Q.
What are the tax implications of sale of any house property, commercial or residential?

For the purpose of Real Estate the Long-term Capital gain would be only if you hold the property for more than three years, then it is subjected to tax @20%. In case you sell the property in less than three years time then it would become short-term Capital Gain and the same is required to be taxed at the prevailing tax schedule of the rate applicable to the assessee depending on his other incomes.

Q.
What is meant by the market value of the property and is Stamp Duty payable on the market value of the property or on consideration as stated in the agreement?

Market value of property is the price at which there is a willing buyer and a seller agreeing to the transfer the property at an arm's length transaction. Stamp duty is levied on the ready reckoner rate or the agreement price, whichever is higher.

Q.
Does availing of a teaser loan make sense?

Availing of a temporarily discounted home loan without taking a protracted view of one's financial position is not advisable. One should be aware of the manner in which one's finances will be affected after the teaser period is over and real-time lending rates kick in.

Q.
In whose name are the stamps required to be purchased?

The stamps are required to be purchased in the name of any one of the executors to the Instrument.

Q.
Who is liable to pay Stamp Duty-the buyer or the seller?

The buyer is liable to pay the stamp duty.

  • Excessive supply in a city or area means less demand

    Most cities have pockets with excessive supply, as well as pockets wherein supply is severely constrained. Despite concern about economic growth and high inflation, areas with excessive supply will continue to see demand, and therefore price appreciation. As long as an area is seeing infrastructure development, it remains a safe investment bet.

  • The metros are still the best places to invest in real estate

    Property prices in many of the metros have skyrocketed. Investors observe these trends, analyse the magnitude and scope of activity, and identify one or the other new town as the next coming thing. A fundamental real estate investment mantra is that emerging localities are preferable to established and often saturated ones. Established areas eventually reach a peak in terms of appreciation potential, after which the growth rate either slows down or stagnates. Moreover, there is little scope for new market drivers such as malls to find a place in saturated localities – meanwhile, prices remain high. This is not the best of scenarios from an investment point of view, since optimal investment requires low entry levels and appreciable growth within a realistic timeframe. Therefore, as one or the other destination reaches its peak potential on all these counts, new ones come into the limelight.

  • Major Indian developers are abandoning the MIG sector and concentrating on high-end residential projects because it makes better business sense.

    Most big-banner developers still see sense in constructing mid-income housing projects, since they can construct more volumes. The demand in terms of units is phenomenal and developers getting into this segment can build for years to come. They have the assurance of sure-shot absorption, as well. Most major Indian developers are ‘not’ shifting from affordable to high-end housing -- only branching out. While they get into middle-segment housing, they continue to build high-end projects.

  • There is a 'bubble' in the Indian real estate market, and it will burst soon

    It is certainly true that many units in cities are not proving to be slow movers because of the current price points, and developers do need to re-calibrate their bottomlines while still remaining viable as businesses. Since the only way to catalyse healthier sales at this point is offering buyers tangible financial relief, a reduction in rates will work best. In fact, new projects are already being launched at lower rates and good deals are available at the negotiation table for serious buyers. In other words, we are not looking at a bubble that is likely to burst, but at a gradual and perceptible relaxation on hard pricing norms.
