BUILDER’S HANDOVER PROCESS

BUILDER’S HANDOVER PROCESS

The date of handover from builder to the registered owners association is an important day for new apartment owners and all residents. It has to be taken seriously and detailed due diligence must be done when interacting with the builders during this handover process. Once the formal handover to the Owners Association is completed, the onus is on the association to run the affairs of the society and to ensure its smooth functioning. The association must be prepared for this day for 3+ months leading to this event.

It is recommended that owners collaboratively engage with the builder right from late construction stages that will help them to take-up this responsibility in future. The builders can also reach out to representatives from the owners group to assist in the selection of maintenance agency which prepares them for the handover process.

Based on our experience in interacting with various builders and associations, we have collated a check list that associations can use when in dialogue with the builder on the handover process:

  1. Get approved building plan which includes block-wise and floor-wise details
  2. Collect the Completion Certificate which ensures adherence of the approved plan
  3. No Objection certificates from pollution, fire, water and electricity authorities
  4. Hard copy and soft copy (in CD) of all approved engineering drawings; look for approval seal on the drawings
  5. Registration and parent documents
  6. Drainage, sewage, Fire protection and common area power layout drawings
  7. Car parking layout drawings (with numbering)
  8. Asset Inventory of all movable and immovable equipment purchased; numbered in order (list needs to be exhaustive)
  9. Record of recent service history on key equipment’s like lifts, DG sets, STP and WTP

10.AMC and warranty details; Original bills of equipment purchased (motors, Sewage and Water Treatment Plant, Generators, Gym items like treadmill)

11.Lift license details and next renewal date

12.STP/WTP vendor details, plant layout, operation manual and drawings

13.Receipts of property, electricity and water payments paid

14.Handover of corpus amount to the association

16.Contract signed with maintenance agency; agreed SLAs

17.Insurance taken for assets and third party lift insurance

18.Audited account statement at the time of handover

Need for Deemed Conveyance

Need for Deemed Conveyance

A Co- Operative Housing Society is the owner of the Land & Building & individual member enjoys the ownership right of the Flat/ Shop based on the Share Certificate issued by the Co- Operative Housing Society.

 

A vast majority of Co- Operative Housing Societies does not have the Conveyance in their favour & hence are not the owners of their Land & Building. In this situation, even though each member of the Co- Operative Housing Society has paid full consideration and is in possession of the Flat/ Shop allotted, he does not enjoy the benefits of title ownership of the Flat/ Shop.

In case of Co-Operative Housing Societies formed long back, many of the Buildings are in dilapidated condition and their repairs are not economically viable. The best solution available for these Co- Operative Housing Societies is to go ahead with Redevelopment. The non- availability of the Conveyance & therefore free/ marketable Title affects the Redevelopment Process badly.

In case of Co- Operative Housing Societies formed recently, the Redevelopment at the moment is not on the agenda. However the non- availability of the Conveyance and free and marketable Title may affect its present Revenue and may be a hindrance in Redevelopment process in future.

Therefore Deemed Conveyance is in the larger interest of the Co- Operative Housing Societies (and their each and every member) who are denied their right of Conveyance by the Land- Owners & Property Developers.

Essential Elements in a Conveyance Deed

Essential Elements in a Conveyance Deed

The term “Deed” means a written legal contract that binds the parties to its terms and can be proved in the court as evidence.

The term ‘Conveyance’ is used when there is transfer of ownership or legal title in a property from one person to another. Hence, a conveyance deed is a legal document between a transferor and a transferee, which proves that a title or ownership in the property along with all other rights related to the property have been transferred from one person to another.

It informs that the property is free from any restrictions and disputes. Both parties sign it and it can be produced in a court if any dispute relating to the agreement arises in future.

However, a conveyance deed is a wide term which not only includes a sale of the property but also other kinds of transfers such as gift, exchange, lease, mortgage, relinquishment and other transfers.

A conveyance deed is valid only when the property is sold for a valid consideration (usually money) except in the case of a gift deed which results out of love and affection.

It can be signed for either movable or immovable property.

A conveyance deed is executed in accordance with the legal provisions under the Transfer of Property Act 1882, Registration Act 1908 and Indian Stamp Act, 1899.

In order to be valid and acceptable in a court, a conveyance deed needs to contain some essential elements. For instance, it must:

* Establish exact boundaries of the property to avoid any dispute relating to land ownership,

* State that all the rights relating to the property have been transferred along with the property,

* Provide details regarding delivery and acceptance of the property,

* State all terms and conditions relating to the transfer,

* Be made on a non-judicial stamp paper and signed by both parties,

* Mention full names, addresses and other requisite details of the seller and the buyer,

* State that the property is free from any disputes and restrictions,

* Be signed by at least two witnesses

* Be in writing and notarized, and

* Be registered through the local registrar’s office by submitting appropriate registration fee. Registration is proof that the property is free from any disputes and has been transferred to the buyer permanently with a clean title.

Once the registration is complete, the buyer becomes the absolute owner of the property and the conveyance process gets over officially. A lawyer and a real estate agent can help two parties compose, sign, and register a deed of conveyance during a transaction. The government obtains its revenue from the stamp duty and registration fees.

A COMPLETE GUIDE TO DEEMED CONVEYANCE

A COMPLETE GUIDE TO DEEMED CONVEYANCE

Most of the flat-owners of the newly constructed Societies/apartments do not have their sale deeds or conveyance deeds. Mostly in the newly constructed buildings, the builders provide for forming a housing co-operative society to which they shall transfer their interest in the property. Then the builders form the society but do not transfer the title of the property (read ownership) to the flat-owners or the society till he has transferred all the rights in the building/ Societies/apartments. Thus the builders/promoters are benefiting from the buyers lack of awareness and information.

To curb this practice, amendments were carried out in the Maharashtra Ownership Flats Act, 1963, in 2008 to appoint a Competent Authority (Registrar of Co-operative Housing Societies) to hear the grievances of such Societies/apartments owners and to safeguard their interest by executing deemed conveyance of such societies u/s 11(3) of Maharashtra Ownership Flats Act, 1963.

Ved Legal is having enough experience to deal with these kinds of Deemed Conveyance of Co-operative Housing Societies, in and around Pune. Any aggrieved society or apartment holder can get resolution from us in regards of the same.

 

MEANING OF DEEMED CONVEYANCE:

A deemed conveyance means when the builder/ promoter/ developer of the project refuses to sign the conveyance deed the court can sign the same on behalf of the builder and record the same in the government records.

 

NEED FOR DEEMED CONVEYANCE:

In a situation when a promoter or owner of residential premises/ buildings does not transfer/convey the ownership of the flats to the housing society or association of persons (AOP), the society or AOP can make an application to Registrar of Co-operative Housing Societies, to transfer the ownership of the said flats to them. This process is carried on through Deemed Conveyance of the title of the buildings and land in favour of the Society or AOP without the need of the builder to do so.

 

IMPORTANCE AND PROVISIONS OF LAW ON CONVEYANCE:

As per the Housing Society bye-laws, the main objective of formation of the Society is to obtain the Conveyance; and if Conveyance is not given by the Builder within four months from the date of registration of the Society, a case can be filed against the Builder to obtain the Conveyance. As per Section 13 of Maharashtra Ownership Flats Act, 1963, failure to give Conveyance is an offence and the Builder can be imprisoned up to 3 years or fined or both.

 

ADVANTAGES OF CONVEYANCE:

  1. Getting a proper and legal title in the name of the Society.
  2. Retaining the additional FSI as per the Government announcements.
  3. Property will be free and marketable.
  4. Society can raise the loans for repairs and reconstruction by mortgage.
  5. Permission from planning authorities is possible if the building has to be reconstructed at a later date due to dilapidation of the structure due to age or by earthquake.
  6. Society can take the benefit of TDR.
  7. Members can receive compensation from Builder on redevelopment of the building.

DISADVANTAGES OF NOT HAVING CONVEYANCE DEED

Even though you have purchased ownership flat, you are not the owner of the land and building. 2. In the event of a building collapse or damage to the building, you cannot reconstruct the building without the permission of the Builder / Land owner.

  1. The Builder/Developer may mortgage the property purchased by you as he is the legal owner and holding the Title Deeds of the Property.
  2. The Builder/Developer may tap the benefits in case the building is later taken up for redevelopment or if the plot has some unutilized floor space index.
  3. The Builder may make profit by sale of open spaces, gardens, terrace, parking space belonging to the Society.
  4. The Builder may demand a huge amount from the Society, if Conveyance is sought by the Society after a lapse of many years.
  5. The Builder may sell the entire Development Rights and the Legal Rights on the land to third party and create a third party interest in the Property and the Society will have to incur a huge amount to clear the same.

CONDITIONS PRECEDENT FOR GETTING A DEEMED CONVEYANCE:

There are certain important conditions which need to be fulfilled to go ahead for deemed conveyance, some of them are:

 

  1. At least 60% of the flats in that scheme should be sold.
  2. A Co-operative Society or Association of Persons should have been formed of the flat-owners and at least 3-4 months should have been passed since then.
  3. There should be communication between the builder and the society or AOP regarding Deemed Conveyance wherein the builder should have made a promise of completion of conveyance or refused to do the same.

 

PROCEDURE FOR FILING AN APPLICATION FOR DEEMED CONVEYANCE:

After the above mentioned conditions are fulfilled, the following steps shall be taken:

Write a letter /email to builder/ promoter requesting him to provide a draft of the SALE DEED/ CONVEYANCE DEED or providing the draft to him and requesting him to sign the same.

Stage 5- Transfer of Property after Deemed Conveyance
During this stage the Society Name is incorporated in the Land Revenue Records.

Let’s discuss each step in detail:

 

  1. Preparation for Deemed Conveyance:

This is a very important stage where the Managing Committee prepares the Members of Co- Operative Housing Society for the Deemed Conveyance.

The Managing Committee convenes a Special General Meeting (SGM) of the Society by giving suitable notice highlighting the agenda.

The Managing Committee places before the SGM the difficulties faced for obtaining the Conveyance from the Land Owners/ Property Developers. The Managing Committee explains the effects of non- availability of Conveyance to the Members. The Managing Committee explains the Procedure & Benefits of Deemed Conveyance to the Members.

During this SGM the following Resolutions are typically passed.

  1. Resolution for going ahead with Deemed Conveyance
  2. Resolution for Appointment of Authorized Representative
  3. Resolution for Appointment of Legal Consultant for Deemed Conveyance
  4. Resolution for Per Member Contributions
  1. Documentation for Deemed Conveyance:

This is the most crucial step in obtaining deemed conveyance. It is a very meticulous job and make sure all the documents are lined up within the right format. You would require land revenue records, municipal corporation records, society records, property development records and professional certificates.

All these documents can be obtained from various departments such as Land revenue records from City Survey Office, Tahasildar/Talathi Office & District Collector Office, municipal corporation records from Building Proposal Department of the Municipal Corporation. Society records and certificates can be obtained from society offices and professionals.

Once all the documents are lined up, society needs to fill in Deemed Conveyance Application- Form VII and attached all the related documents. In case of deemed conveyance, a legal notice is sent to the developer for their consent. In regular conveyance procedures, since the developers or promoters are willingly providing the rights lot of documents can be easily recovered from them.

Once the form is filled up and all documents are annexed it is submitted to the Competent Authority- the District Deputy Registrar of Co- Operative Societies of the particular District.

  1. Legal Case for deemed conveyance:

Once the application is submitted to the authorities they issue Deemed Conveyance Scrutiny Report- Form VIII within 1 month. Once the compliance is provided the authorities issues Summons & Newspaper Notices to the Land Owners & Property Developers for appearing for the hearing.

During the hearing process authorities take into consideration the arguments of the both parties. The process takes place within 3-4 months. Once all the arguments are documented the office issues a Deemed Conveyance order within 1 month. The whole process is completed within 6 months as this is a time bound activity.

  1. Registration of deemed conveyance:

A deemed conveyance deed is created during this phase and is signed by both societies and developers. If developers do not appear for hearing in the prior stage (Which is the case in deemed conveyance), authorities have the power to sign the deed on behalf of developers.

The society needs to conduct a meeting and appoint 3 members to sign the deed. Post that the deed is submitted to district stamp office for adjudication. If all the members have paid their stamp duty and if there is no balance FSI, the office issues adjudication certificate. (Note – Deed only requires Rs 100 stamp duty). The adjudication certificate needs to be then franked from local bank and resubmitted to registration office.

The registration office then issues notice to land owner/developer to verify if there is any stay order against the deed of conveyance. (Note – The developer can get the stay order only from high court). If there is no stay order the deed of deemed conveyance is registered and then the office issues scanned documents and Index II. This mark end of registration process and the society becomes the owner of the land and structure.

  1. Transfer of property:

In this phase a new application is submitted to various departments to make mutation entries in their records. This would make the process complete.

CHECKLIST FOR HANDOVER OF SOCIETY FROM BUILDER

During the handover procedure it is important to record and file all details related to the process so that even if problems arise years later, all you need to do is look through this set of records and, accordingly, figure out what to do next.

The builder-residents society handover procedure needs to be structured, but that’s not where the process ends. There are a few things you should remember to check even after the builder hands over your society.

1)Make sure all society related issues are recorded and filed: All defects that you find should be typed as a letter with a signed acknowledgement of the same from the builder, so he is obligated to fix them. All important e-mails should be printed and kept safely for future references.

2)Make sure you make good use of the builder provided warranty period: Builders generally offer a warranty period within which defects are to be pointed out and duly fixed.

3)Form a team of volunteers to check and cross check all formalities are done correctly: Apart from the Management Committee, it is recommended that you bring together a group of residents to volunteer in making sure all necessary documents have been collected and all required formalities have been done. (To learn what documents you need during society handover, read ‘Keep a Check on These When Builder Hands Over Your Housing Society’)

4)Get a community management software to help you keep a permanent track of records: Getting a society management portal will prove significantly helpful in the overall management of your community activities in the long run. (For example: Common Floor Groups portal. With its many features such as Discussion, Complaints, My Dues, Issue Tracker, Documents repository this portal will serve as a platform to execute and manage community related activities effectively.)

5)Keep originals safely and copies separately with the Committee President: Make sure you keep originals of documents at a safe place such as the Association office and their copies with the Committee President which, when his tenure ends, are passed on to his successor.
