My understanding is that it is illegal.

Since you are taking a loan, I am not sure how this will even work since the bank will expect the full amount to be shown in the registration. In the case of an apartment, the builder shows the remaining amount as some other charge like interior, maintenance, etc, but that is not possible in the case of a plot.

The bank will look at sale agreement, which will have the actual sale price. But the sale deed that follows will have the guidance value. The stamp duty depends on the value in sale deed. This is what I understood so far.

You could alternately request the neighbours in the building to help out by holding the key on your behalf.

Else, find which of the brokers can give an end-to-end service. If you use this, you will need to stick to one broker and let him have the key.. you may not be able to compare offers through diff parties.
It’s a small housing society. 7 floors 28 flats. I am guessing it’s ok to give a broker the key. Back in the day 80s-90s that like giving up your flat. It was impossible to get someone out after that.

I am sure Mumbai would have many such agencies. This is a big business now that many people are staying away from their hometowns but still hold on to their homes for whatsoever reason.
Thanks will look into this.

Sale deed will not show the guidance value. It will only have the official sale price, which can be equal to or more than the guidance value.

No sale deed is going say something like " this sale is being done as per guidance value" / " the sale amount is more than guidance value by xx".

It is impossible irrespective of legality. Banks will sanction loan based on the property value as per records (along with your income profile). Ex: If you show the registration value as 30L and bank is ready to provide 75% of asset value as loan, then you can get a maximum of 22.5L of loan. The % is usually lesser for plots, so it might reduce your loan eligibility further.

+1. Check with seller what is the maximum registration value he is OK to go with. Though you will pay more for stamp duty and registration, this will increase your sanctioned loan amount and also reduce your LTCG when you sell it.

Doesn't the banks have any issue with this obvious difference in amounts shown in Sale agreement and Sale deed for the same property transaction?

Or the whole system is compromised?

Banks give a loan and the borrower will be held accountable. In cases of flats, the builder will not be held responsible for anything - the borrower will have to pay back the loan.

However, such deviations are increasingly under the scanner, because such loans are likely candidates for default and hence NPA's of the banks.

This is a double edged sword and the system is designed to harass the common man who wants to bat straight at least in TN. When you register with guidance value which is well below market value, government loses its revenue. So why would the government wants that. Answer is some folks game the system when they sense land acquisition may happen there. They do a transaction for exorbitant amount and register a plot/land parcel way above guidance value by paying full registration stamp duty. When the government has to acquire the land for any purpose in the next few years, they have to compensate at 4 times the market value which is last inflated registration value. Hence the registrar insists on registration at guidance value. Otherwise they will be suspended later.

So to overcome this causing loss at guidance value registration and save themselves and at the expense of buyer they started writing the market value (actual amount or assessed amount by registration department) in the sale deed but register the deed at guidance value. Good luck in future if there is a notice for causing revenue loss to government.

Re: The Property / Real Estate Thread

Asking: I wish to sell my house in Pune, should I go the broker-route or advertise and sell myself?

No urgency.

I am aware and wary of the pitfalls if I try myself.

Just trying to gauge if going with a broker makes sense.

All advice welcome.

It always and always makes sense to cut out the middle-man.

Unless you cannot do it for any reason - lack of time, proximity to the property, soliciting the right kind of buyers, etc etc.

How does LTCG work when you buy a plot, construct a house and then sell it?

Say you register a plot for 50L, construct a house for 50L and then sell for say 1.5cr. What components are considered into the equation in this scenario?

I understand for a plot buy and plot sale. Trying to understand for plot buy and house sale.

Didn’t quite get this.

Is it possible to write a value in the sale deed and register the deed for a different value.

Doesn’t registration happen on the value that is written in the deed?

They will just ask you add a sentence in the sale deed that "Market value of the transaction is zzz" and zzz is the value provided by them. Rest of all is based on guideline value. This is just their attempt to save themselves to avoid causing loss to exchequer in audits and pass the burden to the buyer. And this practice started a year ago.

Really? Now this is one new information.

You mean they will write, for eg: that 75L is the market value and the sale deed value is 30L. Hmm.

Is this a practice only in your state and do you know if KA also does this way?
