Water leakage/seepage in the roof/ceiling in 1st floor flat


Good day!

I have booked a 3BHK flat in first floor (1595 square feet) by giving Rs. 6 lakh advance (total cost: Rs. 70 lakh). I have not done the registration still. Yesterday, I noticed severe water leakage/seepage from the roof (kitchen, dining hall, all 3 rooms). The status of the construction is almost over (98%), and only the final touch like painting, etc are there. When I checked with the builder, he told me that some stagnant water in the floor above my flat might have caused the seepage. However, I noticed that the flooring work with tiles in the flat above has been already completed. No occupation yet in the entire building (20 flats), as the builder is waiting to receive the HMDA (Hyderabad Metropolitan Development Authority) occupancy certificate. I need to know if I have to stop buying the flat, as it is a defective construction. Please adivise. Thank you.

first of all make vedeography of all the defects in construction and keep with you , then try to talk with builder regarding your refund, if builder agreed then its fine and if builder dont then serve him with legal notice to refund your amount alongwith interest . Ddraft your legal notice from some expert lawyer. feel free to call if any query left .

Sir where is the property purchased at? Depending on the same, we can either file a complaint before RERA authority as well as communicate officially to the builder.
