Frequently Asked Questions
Property Ownership
  1. What is a pre - approved property?

    Ans.: A pre-approved property is a property where the HFI has done a legal and technical check on the property documents. The builder gets his property pre approved from various HFIs to increase the marketability of his project. Every HFI has its own methods of carrying out legal and technical checks on the property.

  2. Where can I get a list of pre-approved properties?

    Ans.: The list of pre approved properties of HFIs who are participating on our site is available under the Browser section.

  3. What are the advantages if I buy a pre approved property?

    Ans.: By buying a property in a pre-approved project, you can safely assume that the property is legally and technically clear. For you this means quality construction and authorised construction. Moreover, the documents that you submit to the HFI in a pre-approved project are fewer than in the case if you buy a non - approved project. In a pre-approved project, the only documents that you submit are your own property documents. While in the case of a non approved project, the entire list of documents pertaining to the land along with the various permissions granted to the builder need to be handed over to the HFI.

  4. In case of a Pre-approved property if there is a delay from the builder - does it mean I don't have to pay HFI?

    Ans.: When a HFI pre approves a property of a developer, it only means that the property is legally and technically clear. This does not mean that the HFI guarantees the performance of the developer. You have to pay off your loan even if the developer delays the construction or even calls off the project completely.
