Construction delay of Affordable Housing Project “The Millennia” Sector 37 D, Gurgaon

Estimated Reading Time:

The Project “The Millenia” sector 37 D, Gurgaon is promoted by M/s. Signature Global Pvt. Ltd. In Sept. 2017 with the completion date of August 2021. The payment plan is time linked i.e. full payment is to be made by September 2020. We have paid 75% till date and not again a demand for 12.5% payment is due on 27th April 2020, whereas the builder has just made 25-30% construction only. We are not willing to make any more payment to builder till he achieves a construction milestone of 75%. Builder is threatening us with 15% interest and cancellation of flat if demand is not made. How can we postpone the payment of demand? How can we postpone the payment of demand until the builder achieve the construction milestone of 75%?

Question from: Haryana

You should send him a notice for delayed construction work. When the builder completed only 25 to 30% of construction work it seems that the project is far behind the schedule mentioned in the brochure. This is an agreement and the builder is bound to perform his promise which has mentioned in the agreement. When the builder does not perform his part he cannot compel the purchase to make the full payment otherwise he will levy 15% interest thereupon. He has to complete the construction as per schedule to provide the flats within time. It seems from the current progress of the work that he would not deliver the flats on time. 

You can claim the refund of the entire investment

In this situation, you can claim a refund under Section 18 of the RERA Act. In the said notice, you should mention that your construction work is not going as per the schedule so I could not pay the remaining amount as per the payment schedule given in the brochure.  If he persists to make payment despite the delay in his project then you should file a case before the RERA authority under section 18 for the return of entire investment with interest.

Possession without occupancy certificate

Occupancy certificate or completion certificate is an important document because it proves that the flat is fit for occupancy or living. It also proves that the builder has constructed the builder as per the permission granted by the competent authority. If a flat buyer takes possession in absence of occupancy certificate it may cause harm to his property rights.
