Declarations under UP Apartment Act

The builder may ask its buyers/owners to fill Form B (last page). However, for buyers, filling out the same without seeing Form A does not make sense and hence shall be avoided.
Also, buyers shall ensure that Form B’s content is exactly same as given on last page without any modification.

Comments/Feedback invited.

    An agreement (builders buyers agreement-bba) gets executed between seller and buyer.normally this bba is drafted by the builders making most of the condition in their favour. For example for delay in project execution,they will compensate @ RS 5/-PER sft (which is almost nothing) where as any delay on part of buyer,interest would be charged 18-24%. More over payment conditions are such laid that they get almost 90% of the total amount of the flat(total cost includes all service charges +clubmembership,interest free maintenance which are no where in existance at thetime of construction). Builder is not ready to alter any claues and therefore buyer has no alternate to accept this.
    I would request you to please provide your valuable guidence under the circumastance

      There is no remedy as of now at the stage of signing BBA.
      Cabinet approved Real estate Regulatory bill (now to go to select committee) didn’t have even a model BBA with it.
      A model BBA, if made in favor of buyers after revisiting the bill, can help our cause.
      Otherwise as of now, only option is a mass movement by buyers to ignore builder community coming up with such one sided BBAs so that builders are forced to make changes.
