5 tips while buying a home in India

It is a desire of every individual to own his dream home, but buying home is not all that easy task as it looks like. Since it involves bulk of your hard earned money, you should be very careful while buying the new property. There are few points to be taken care at the time of buying new home such as one has to be sure about the legality of the property whether it is approved by the local authorities or not and check all related documents of the property to avoid legal hassles at the later stage. It is essential to be alert right from beginning to the final stage of buying the home. There are following few important points to be kept in mind while buying the property.

1. Title Deed

Must check the title deeds, this will let you know whether the property is on the name of seller or not. While doing so always ask for original documents, in most of the cases copy states of documents is shown which is not correct. The legal status of the land must be ascertained before making any payment in the form of token to the seller. It is equally important to know the kind of property whether it is commercial, residential or mixed. Check whether the land on which the property is built up is free or lease hold; the lease hold means you can use it for a certain period only. If required do measure the land to ascertain the correctness of area at times people get duped by the seller showing exaggerated measurements.

2. Tax Receipts and Bills

There are property taxes levied by the government make sure that receipts of such property taxes are available with the seller and all dues are paid till the time of selling the property. In some of the cases these receipts may not be available with the seller in such cases buyer can approach the concerned office with the survey number of the property and verify the real owner of the property and check if all due taxes are paid or not. You must make sure that all due electricity and water bills are paid till the time of selling the property.

3. Pledged property

In some of the cases people do take loan from the banks or financial institutes by pledging the property. Make sure that all dues are paid by the seller and are in possession of no due certificate from the concerned financial institute before making any deal with the seller.

4. Encumbrance Certificate

Before buying the property ask for encumbrance certificate which will ensure that property is not mortgaged and if so see that all dues are cleared by the seller before making final deed.

5. Taking advice of the experts

For most of us buying house is one time investment of your hard money and if few bucks are spent to take the advice of experts like real state people to make sure that property is hassle free without any legal issues. Take help of engineers to make sure that the construction part of it is to the satisfaction of basic requirements. Last but not the least if you believe in Vastu take advice of such experts to make sure that you really land in your dream house and stay peacefully.

best hotels in south Delhi which are perfect for your pockets

South Delhi Image from Sky scrapper

There is no doubt that the capital of India is a hot destination for travellers (Business and leisure) and they need hotels. Well if you as a hotel owner in Delhi that why he or she opened a Hotel in Delhi than they will have these words in common. “Asian Games in 80’s and XIX Commonwealth Games 2010 Delhi”

But still as the population of Delhi is 2.2 million and this population has good amount of money so they love to spend a lovely night with their friends or love ones in Luxury if not budget hotels and there is no doubt that hotels in south Delhi is the most favourable ones which many locals and corporate travellers will love to refer.

So I thought that I should prepare a list of top 5 accommodation places which I would refer for South Delhi.

At no 1- Eros Hotel

Eros Hotel Delhi

Eros Hotel Delhi

This is not just a hotel but a building which caters middle class people visiting Nehru Place market for computer parts. The room rate isn’t too high here and I am sure that if you contact them a bit early then they can offer a good room deal.

At no 2- GTC Hotel and Lounge

GTC Hotel and Lounge Delhi

GTC Hotel and Lounge is a nice 3 star low budget hotels at south Delhi which is a popular destination for greater kailash locals and many corporate travellers. The location of this hotel is amazing as it is on G.K 2 main road and the hotel staff offer some amazing deals like free movie tickets (as this hotel is close to Savitri Cinema) or a free mocktail at check in. Plus their room rates are really affordable (Its like 2000 though they said 2500 on call but I got a discount as I blog :D). Beside this hotels is perfect for travellers looking for hotels near new Delhi railway station for 2000 as the GTC staff offer free cab service from Delhi railway station.

Apart from Hotels one can also try Service Apartments or home turned hotels in southern part of the city. Though I would suggest that if you are either travelling alone or carrying good amount of cash that prefer hotels. As they are safer and have tight security and this facility isn’t always available on Apartments.

For really cheaper options try PG. South Delhi is full of them. As per GTC Hotel they have a PG service near by and but its only for girls. But that place is safe as they have mails and guards 24/7. For more information about Delhi and some tourist destinations I will suggest that you read Tripadvisor and Lonely planner sites as information there isn’t doctored as compare to local tour guides book available in the market and if you are coming from an anther nation that do contact Delhi Tourism site for more information on their site- www.delhitourism.gov.in

Some useful details for travellers:

  • Delhi Airport website is www.newdelhiairport.in and the best way to book flights for Delhi from from Makemytrip, Yatra and Via.com
  • Delhi has many railway stations but New Delhi railway station is the biggest and Anand Vihar Railway station is the newest. For more information do visit www.irctc.co.in/
  • Bus Service in Delhi is bit not luxurious but if you are in a group and want to explore the city is a A.C bus that contact Mann Travels at www.manntours.com

A small post on Delhi- Image Style…

New Delhi is amazing. It has everything which can attract a foreigner to settle here and that is happening. Now why boys and gals from all over the globe are settling in New Delhi? Just check these reasons.

Reason no 1

Money, Money and Money. New Delhi is famous for Hospitality business which is giving rise to real estate industry and that is giving rise to anther one. So this chain of development has opened many office all around the city and in neighbouring cities of Jaipur, Noida etc. So everyone from the world is interested to be a part of this growing economy and thus they settle here. We also plan to do the same.

Reason no 2

Food and culture of the city is declining but its not dead. Many will say today that the culture and food quality of the city is declining but I believe that delhi is still number 1 place to dine and there are still many locals which treats you as their own child as our PG lady. Sucg love and affection is visible in her food and you can’t find it anywhere. So Delhi is still amazing.

Nameste India

There are still many reasons but I will end this post here. I will add some more points or if you are interested that you can add too..Till than Namaste.
