Details about property

As an NRI, it is essential that you have proper knowledge about all the terminologies related to the real estate market in India. So, here are some of the essential aspects that you need to consider.

Saleable area: This area is the total area that includes carpet area, common area, and wall area.

Sell deed Vs Sale deed: Sell deed is considered as the preliminary document between a buyer and seller. This document establishes the terms and conditions between the seller and the buyer after the property is purchased. It is given after the buyer has paid 20% of the total selling amount. This deed is not a final one. The final document which transfers the ownership of the property to the buyer from the seller is known as Sale Deed.

E-stamping/Franking/Notarizing: The legal documents concerning the property that is not executed on a stamp paper needs to be registered with Indian government along with the essential judicial charges. This process is called e-stamping/franking.

Though executed on stamp paper, at times it needs to be authenticated by an advocate or someone with legal authority. This process is referred as notarizing. It’s used for various documents like Power of Attorney, Affidavit, etc.

Stamp Duty payment: The stamp duty is paid depending on the ‘Government Market Value’ of property. The rates, however, differ according to the jurisdiction.
