Dear Deepak Your queries has largely been replied by Mr. Arora and Mr. Aezaz Ahmad.Just follow the said guidelines.Besides above suggestion I only request you to ensure the Development Agreement between Land Owner and Developer and further ensure that the flat to be purchased by you falls into the share of person from whom you are going to purchase. Also verify in the Office of District Sub Registrar whether the said flat is in the name of any other person or not.
