Generally developers will overwhelm the public with dream offers, colorful literature, attractive prices and incredible incentives. With persuasive charm thy will convince that buying plot is the bargain of your life time, a chance not to be missed. But be on your guard, Make absolutely certain that your developer has the approval of the appropriate authorities. Unapproved Layouts could cause you problems. You could land in difficulties with the Authorities as your layout does not fulfill legal requirements of the Land Revenue Act, the Land Reforms Act, the Town and Country Planning Act and BMRDA Act. You will also be liable to pay various statutory fees and levies which have not been paid by the developer. Unauthorised layouts are often without basic amenities and do not conform to Town Planning requirements. They may lack proper roads and open spaces which should be about 50% of the total area, as stipulated by law. Such layouts will prove to be inconvenient in the long run and have lesser resale value.
