AVOIDING THE PITFALLS
Take care when buying off-plan in India. Prices are quoted in square feet, which can include not only the dimensions of the apartment but also any communal areas. Stick to established developers, insist on stage payments linked to progress in building and check there is security for them should the developer become insolvent. Your lawyer will need to obtain a Nil-Encumbrance Certificate to ensure there are no mortgages on the property.
