Procedure for change of consideration in jda.

If in a Area sharing Joint Development Agreement (JDA), the owner wants to get lumpsum consideration from the Developer at the nearing completion stage of the project, instead of getting alloted area shared, what is the procedure to be followed for lumpsum receipt by owner if the Developer agrees?

You can enter into a new or supplementary agreement with the builder for this purpose alone duly notarized and witnessed.

The lumpsum consideration in a Joint Development Agreement (JDA) at the nearing completion stage is subject to the terms of the agreement. The Transfer of Property Act, 1882, governs property transactions, and the Registration Act, 1908, mandates the registration of such agreements. The lumpsum payment arrangement should be explicitly outlined in the JDA to ensure legal validity.

If both parties agree to a lumpsum payment, an addendum or supplementary agreement should be executed, clearly specifying the amount, payment terms, and conditions. It's crucial to adhere to the Stamp Act, ensuring proper stamp duty is paid on the revised agreement.Additionally, parties must be mindful of local state laws, as real estate transactions often involve state-specific regulations.
