Does RMZ facilitate in availing home loans?

We will help our customers by getting the necessary approvals for the project from the HFIs & we will coordinate with them (as developers) by submitting the necessary documents from our end.

We are going for Bank loans. Since bank will not process the same till we submit the Sale agreements, how can you expect us to make the Initial Payments without generating the Sale Agreements?

Bank will process only 80% loan of the total cost. The customer has to pay the remaining 20% for which we raise the demand initially. However, the initial payment has to be made to enter into the agreement to sell.

What is the payment plan?

The standard payment plan consists of the following:
30% of total flat cost (excluding outgoings, statutory payments, utility deposits etc.,) to be paid before signing the Agreement to Sell. Out of this, a specified initial amount is to be paid as a “blocking amount” at the time of booking and the balance needed to make up 30% is to be paid within 30 days of blocking, post which an Agreement to Sell will be signed.

70% of total flat cost (excluding outgoings, statutory payments, utility deposits etc.,) in quarterly installments, staggered over a period starting from signing of the Agreement to Sell and ending on completion of the Project. The last two installments will be 3% and 2% respectively.

Over and above the total flat cost, the following amounts are also payable upon completion of the Project and before delivery of possession:

  1. Stamp Duty payable on the Agreement to Sell (at actuals as per statutory regulations applicable at the time of signing of the Agreement to Sell).
  2. Stamp Duty and registration fees on the sale deed (at actuals as per statutory regulations applicable at the time of registration of the sale deed).
  3. Ones year’s Maintenance Charges
  4. Lumpsum Contingency Fund charges
  5. Lumpsum Legal Charges
  6. Lumpsum amount towards charges for Water and Electricity meter
  7. Lumpsum amount towards Infrastructure Charges payable to BESCOM and BWSSB

Note: Items (a) and (b) are payable by Demand Draft/Pay Order favouring the respective Government authority empowered to collect these payments. 

What is capital gain?

Capital gain will accrue from the date of Sale Deed or possession whichever is earlier and if the property is sold within 3 years of the above date, the same will be treated as Short Term Capital Gain and if it is more than 3 years from the above dates, the same will be treated as Long Term Capital Gain.
