At our esteemed law firm, we specialize in real estate matters, offering expert guidance to both homebuyers and builders. One crucial aspect of real estate law that profoundly impacts both parties is the Real Estate (Regulation and Development) Act, commonly known as RERA. In this article, we will delve into how to approach RERA for your real estate concerns, outlining the requirements and procedures for both buyers and builders. Whether you’re a homebuyer seeking resolution or a builder striving for compliance, understanding RERA’s provisions is paramount in ensuring a fair and transparent real estate environment.

Approaching RERA for Your Real Estate Concerns

When it comes to addressing real estate issues or concerns, the Real Estate (Regulation and Development) Act, or RERA, provides a structured framework. Whether you are a homebuyer or a builder, understanding how to navigate RERA is essential. Here’s a concise guide on how to approach RERA and the requirements for both buyers and builders.

1. For Homebuyers: Seeking Redressal

Filing a Complaint: If you are a homebuyer facing delays, subpar construction, or deviations from your agreement with the builder, you can file a complaint with the state’s Real Estate Regulatory Authority (RERA). Ensure that your complaint is detailed, specifying the issues and violations.

Documentation: Collect all relevant documents, including your agreement with the builder, payment receipts, and any correspondence related to the project. These documents will be crucial when filing a complaint.

RERA Registration: Verify that the project you invested in is registered with RERA. This registration ensures that the builder complies with RERA provisions and provides project details.

2. For Builders: Meeting RERA Requirements

Project Registration: As a builder, it is mandatory to register your real estate project with RERA before advertising or selling any units. Ensure that all project details, approvals, and timelines are accurately disclosed during registration.

Transparency: RERA emphasizes transparency. Be prepared to share accurate project information, including layout plans, approvals, and timelines, with potential buyers.

Advance Payment Control: Understand that you can’t demand more than 10% of the total cost of the property from homebuyers as an advance payment before signing an agreement.

Compliance: Comply with RERA provisions, including quality standards, project completion timelines, and promised amenities. Any changes to the project must be promptly communicated to homebuyers and updated with RERA.


RERA’s regulations are designed to empower both homebuyers and builders by providing clear guidelines and mechanisms for dispute resolution. Whether you are a homebuyer seeking redressal or a builder striving for compliance, understanding RERA’s requirements and procedures is vital for a transparent and accountable real estate sector.
