Buying a property is an expensive affair. Any mistake in the legal due diligence could land you in serious legal disputes. That's why it's important that you maintain caution and check all the important documents before you sign the deal.
Take a look at some of the most important documents you must verify before buying a property:
The cost of property registration includes stamp duty and the registration fee. Both the charges are calculated based on the value of your property. Also, the charges may vary from state to state.
The stamp duty is the fee charged by the state governments to validate your property registration. This duty is calculated as a percentage of the property's value. In India, the stamp duty charged is generally in the range of 5%-7% of property's value.
Also, in some states, women property owners get concessions on stamp duty. For example: In Delhi, if the owner is a woman, the stamp duty is just 4%, as compared to 6% if the owner is a man.
If you are purchasing a home or any other property or are taking a property on lease, then it is important to get the documents verified. When you verify the documents, you can make sure your investment is safe and you're not getting into any scam or property fraud.
It usually takes around 7-10 days to verify all the documents and prepare a final report. Once the final report is ready, you will get a call from the lawyer where he/she will walk you through all the findings and answer your doubts (if any).
