OVERVIEW

RERA Registration

Buying a home is still a dream for many. The real estate industry has been under a scanner for a long period of time due to fake promises made by the promoters and real estate agents about the completion and delivery of the real estate property.

Due to these issues in the real estate industry, the government has introduced the Real Estate (Regulation & Development) Act, 2016 to resolve the problems faced by the buyer of the property. Real Estate Regulatory Authority (RERA) has been established under this Act to register and approve projects which are related to commercial and residential property and regulate the sale and purchase of the property.
