Registration of Construction Agreements between the builders and the buyers of new flats have been made compulsory in Tamilnadu,with effect from Oct 1,2013.

The registration expenses are 2%(1%Stamp Duty+1%Registration Fee) of the cost of construction.

    Hello sir,
    One property registered at 2018, they registered only sale agreement, they missed to register construction agreement, they went for resale, This month only the identified construction agreement is not registered, In this case what we have to do


    It depends on the agreement between the builder and buyer. Some builders agree to bear registration charges and include it in the per sq ft price
