RERA Stands for Real Estate (Regulation and Development) Act, 2016. The word RERA is also used to denote the Real Estate Regulatory Authority. As per the act, every state and union territory in India has to set up a RERA authority. It’s an initiative by the Indian Government in the real estate sector. The Act aims to set up a Real Estate Regulatory Authority (hereafter, ‘RERA’) to ensure speedy justice to home buyers. The Act is designed to ensure timely recovery of money or possession of the property to the buyers, against the builder.

RERA or Real estate development act 2016 was the need of the hour. In the absence

of a sector-specific law, the Indian real estate sector suffered from corruption and a lack of transparency.

RERA takes care of consumer interests and brings discipline in the real estate sector. RERA has the following broad objectives

  • Bring transparency in the real estate sector.

  • Protect consumer interest by ensuring the time-bound delivery of real estate projects.

  • Single forum to handle real estate disputes.

  • Bring standardization in the real estate sector

Ensuring accountability of the builders /developers /Agents /promoters.

The Real Estate Act 2016 applies to all commercial and residential projects where-
  • The land is over 500 square meters,

  • More than eight apartments are to be developed

  • Ongoing projects which have not received completion certificate on the date of commencement of the RERA Act.

  • If a real estate developer fails to register a project within three months, the RERA authority

    -can impose a penalty of 10% of the project cost or

    -can award a three years' imprisonment Once you register as a promoter, you will receive a login ID, password and a unique registration number.

    You can update your project details after login into the RERA portal of your state.

No, RERA is not applicable to rental projects. It only covers the purchase and sale of real estate projects.

RERA is applicable to both residential and commercial projects, including shops, offices, and buildings.

The RERA act applies to ongoing/existing projects. All real estate projects which have not received occupation or completion certificate will come under RERA. All existing/ongoing projects must register under RERA within three months of implementation of the RERA Act.

File RERA complaints: Step-by-Step guide

Step 1 – To file a complaint with RERA authority you need to visit your state's official RERA portal. For example, to file a complaint with Haryana RERA you need to visit the portal and click on Registration of Complaint with HRERA Authority to start

Step 2 – Once you click on the above link, the online RERA complain form will appear.

Step 3 – You need to submit your name, address, Contact details, and project details. Attach supporting documents such as builder-buyer agreement, project advertisement, brochure, etc.

Step 4 – After filling up the form, you need to pay a sum of INR 1000 for filing a complaint before RERA. If you are filling complain before adjudicating officer, the fee would be INR 5000. You can pay the complaint fee online or via check.

The complaint can be filed as soon as there is an apprehension that the builder will not be able to deliver the property within the stipulated time period. In any manner, it is best to file a complaint as soon as the term of the agreement expires.

Yes, an association of persons (eg. a Welfare Association of Home Buyers) may file a case against the builder. The following are the requirements for filing a complaint as an association:
  • The association may be registered or unregistered.

Will RERA increase property prices?

The act will surely have an upward impact on the prices for residential properties, but not in the short-term.

With so much inventory lying withing existing projects, a market correction will take 3-4 years. Here are some impacts or RERA which we will see in the next five years.

  • Small players will be wiped out.
  • Market will consolidate
  • The RERA Act makes it mandatory to sell on the carpet area. The Indian real estate market has been transacting on the super-built-up area, which is 25-30 percent higher. The per square fit rate adjustments will happen in the coming years.
  • Once the current inventory is sold, there will be limited supply.
  • The builders will have pressure to complete in time, the focus will shift to completing the projects from launching a new one.
  • The burden of Structural Defects shifted on developers, they will add this cost to project prices.
