Full payment of a flat before offer of possession


I have booked a flat in Noida by making 20 %. rest 80 is being arranged by bank finance. 

I have just got BBA and a demand note for the rest 80%.

As per information available on RERA page, the project is not progressing and is at status quo in complaince of a Court's Order.

Builder is telling that physically the flat is ready and you may take possession right now. Only few finishing work is left which will be completed before your move in within 1-2 month.

My query is whether we should pay the full balance to the builder if he offers possession in writing??

Thank you and regards,

Kamlesh Kumar

Inspect the property with representative of builder, and your own architect or civil engineeer.  Do not forget to take a copy of builder's agreement and a digital camera.  Record the unfinished tasks item wise, comparing with agreement, get photographs, list out all unfinished tasks, and such photographs signed by you, your expert and builder representative, and then issue a  registered notice to builder and demand for occupation certificate and for completing the remaining unfinished works.  Start the notice as follows.
