SCRUTINY LEADS THE WAY TO DREAM HOUSE
It is the desire of every person to own a shelter. At the end of long years of employment some manage to gather the required amount to buy the property while for the more fortunate it is at their desire. However, buying a property is always a huge investment and the more careful one is with the process of selection, the lesser are the chances of future disappointments. Careful selection, however difficult though the process may be, keeping in mind the factors such as location, the right vendor, etc., can go a long way in ensuring value appreciation and peaceful enjoyment of property.
The Bangalore metropolitan area comprises of 1279 sq. kms. There are various statutory authorities, which operate in this area, for according approvals to the layouts, constructions etc.
The Bangalore Development planning and developing agency in this area. Any layout in the metropolitan area of Bangalore must be approved by the BDA. This is mandatory as per the Karnataka Town and Country Planning Act, 1961, and BDA Act 1976. So it is essential to make sure that the site you purchase is in a BDA approved layout or has been approved by any other competent authority.
The Karnataka Land Reforms Acts
does not allow purchase of agricultural lands by the non-agriculturists; unless it is converted to non-agricultural purpose. Even house building
co-operative societies are covered under this restriction.
Another dangerous area is a “revenue site. Revenue sites are formed on agricultural lands, which are not converted.
Using such sites for residential
purpose is against the law. These sites are not entitled to power, water supply and sewerage connections. Most landowners use Form No.9 & 10 to confuse and convince the purchasers and these are all generally fabricated documents, which are not issued by any statutory authority and hence not genuine.
Government acquired land
The government is vested with powers to acquire lands for the purpose of development. Firstly, the Land Acquisition Officer announces a paramilitary notification for acquisition of land and calls for objections from the public or the affected party. The affected party has to file objections within 30 days, stating the developments done on that property, after obtaining all permissions from the statutory authority concerned and also taking into account the real value of the property
. After hearing the case of the affected party, the government may delete the said survey number from the notification and announce the final notification. After the final notification, the government may pass an award, after which, such of the properties
finding mention in the final notification is considered as acquired property. Once notified lands are prohibited from alienating such lands. But many owners sell such notified/acquired lands to gullible purchasers by using Form Nos.9 and 10. One should be very careful as to whether the property was acquired or not and has to check with the acquisition authorities in this regard.
Comprehensive development plan
The comprehensive development plan (CDP) is in operation in the Bangalore metropolitan area. This plan has divided the metropolitan area into different zones. Each zone is earmarked for a particular activity which are, residential
: industrial which includes light and service industries, medium industries and heavy industries and heavy industries: public and semi-public; Utilities and Services; Parks and open spaces, play grounds including public recreational area, transport and communication, agricultural land and water sheet (Water body).
Activity other than that stipulated, in such zones is not permitted. One must always ensure that, the site purchased is used in conformity with the zonal regulations, for example houses for residential purpose should be constructed only in the residential zone, with regard to this, the zonal regulation map is available at the BDA office, and it is essential to verify the Zonal Regulation Map before purchase of property
Further, Village Panchayats are also entitled to issue the Khata but only in respect of the village Panchayat area and a further 200 meters from the limit of Gramathana area, which is marked as village area in the survey map issued by the Survey Department.
Legal formalities like tracing the title of the property, verifying the sanction plan, electricity, water, sanitary facilities and relevant sanctions, checking up the plinth area, carpet area and the super built up area are all important aspects to be verified with the help of a qualified professional. However, before checking legal formalities, approvals and permissions it is essential that a careful selection of a location with regard to its surrounding areas, habitation, density of population, access of various facilities etc., be made to ensure that the property purchased can be lived in peacefully and that the potential for reasonable value appreciation of the property is good.
Selecting a location
Location is the most important aspect while investing in a property. It is advisable to ensure that there are no slum areas nearby, a place of worship attached to the property, drainage line close to the property. The purpose of buying a property often at times determines the location.
It may be for self-occupation as a house or for investment purposes. In case of house/flat for own occupation, a residential locality not far away from the heart of the city is preferable. If any person offers property at a cheaper rate as against the prevailing market rate, then it is advisable not to accept the offer, as it may come with certain hidden problems, which are difficult to trace. Some people may try to convince you by saying that there is a lot of demand for the property and offer you very little time to make a decision on buying the property. One should not yield or be pressured by such tactics ensure proper verification and examine documents with extraordinary care before committing oneself. Always select approved layouts by appropriate authorities that enable and individual to get all the facilities within the layout. The area should have well developed roads; good drainage and the civic staff should do the garbage clearance regularly. Low-lying areas should be avoided as they get inundated during monsoons.
The proximity and accessibility to work place, schools, market place, hospitals, railways, bus station and recreational centers is important. The locality should have adequate banking facility, frequency of public conveyance, other modes of transport, availability of public telephone booths etc. A location that is not far away from the modern facilities. And infrastructure and yet far enough to avoid the pollution of the city, is preferable.
Prefer an area inhabited by decent, educated and cultured people of cosmopolitan outlook. Ensure that the area is not home to anti-social elements. There should not be factories or workshop especially the ones which work in night-shifts, in the immediate neighborhood. This results in noise pollution and sleepless nights apart from affecting the quality of the power supply. Property
attached or close to highways or heavy traffic areas are best avoided as they result in noise pollution. Further, the area should have regular supply of water, power and good ground water table for bore well.
Facilities like public park/garden for walks are worth considering. The location of a temple, mosque or church and religious institutions that arrange regular discourses in this age of stress and strain, is a welcome factor. Apart from the above, the size of the plot to suit your budget and the permitted FAR (Floor Area Ratio) is important.
Vaastu is of individual preference, however people are increasingly seeking Vaastu incorporated property and it will be worthwhile, keeping in mind the value appreciation and future sale, to ensure that the property is as per the Vaastu guidelines
If the purchase is for investment purpose, the chance of resale is the important factor. A developing area is preferable to a developed area. The investment in a developing area is comparatively low and value appreciation will be more.
