Real Estate Investment options for NRI - Wiser Choice

Real estate prices in rest of the world are going down, but the good news is that the real estate investment in India is growing leaps and bound. As a Non-Resident Indians (NRIs), the customers has the best opportunity to eacash on the growth in real estate and should plan to make investments in India in the real estate sector.



BENEFITS FOR INVESTMENT IN PROPERTY

An NRI property buyer can look at three benefits:
  1. Self Use : Apart from the pleasure of owning a house, Non-Resident Indian would be very happy to note that if he takes loan for a self occupied house property, then he would enjoy a deduction from his Indian income in respect of interest paid on loan taken for such self occupied residential property. This loan can be taken either from the bank or financial institution so also the loan can be taken from any member of the family or friend or relative.
  2. Rental Income : A good location property, like the one built by CMRS Group, ensures that you get consistent rental income which increases over time. For the Rental income derived by a NRI, the income is deducted in respect of actual payment of house tax as also a special 30 per cent deduction is available towards repairs, maintenance and collection charges of the property. This special deduction is permissible irrespective of the fact whether you spend on the repairs or you do not spend on repairs. 
  3. Save On Tax : All the properties offered by CMRS Group offer very good appreciation over time and the NRIs are interested in reaping the benefits. In case the property is sold after holding it for three years, it becomes Long-Term Capital Gain for which innumerable tax advantages can be achieved by an NRI.  The maximum income-tax payable on Long-Term Capital Gain is just 20 per cent and finally it is possible for the Non-Resident Indian to save such Capital Gains Tax by making investment in new residential property based on the provisions contained in the Income-tax Law.  
As an NRI, sometime it becomes difficult to do your home work when buying a property and more often a person makes a wrong decision. Many times the NRIs gets fooled by investing in bigger brands which may result in a home of a promised quality but will never result in higher than expected returns. You should invest in a builder which assists you in home work and also promises you higher returns with reasonable price. A future proof home is another factor which one should consider if the home is for investment.

HOME WORK FOR NRI

  1. Confirm the nature of property. As per the guidelines from the Reserve Bank of India (RBI), an overseas Indian cannot buy agricultural land, plantations and farm land in the country. 
  2. Verify all the legal documents before buying the land. If you invest in residential projects being built on agricultural land without securing approval from the government, the investment will be deemed illegal, irrespective of who buys the land.
  3. Make sure that the property has secured all clearances required by law, such as environment and municipal clearances and the authority to transfer the undivided share of land to each apartment owner and the entire plot to the society upon completion of the project.
TIP : Buying a property from CMRS Group will always ensure that you are investing only in residential land. With CMRS Properties, you will be shown the title deed, in original, and that it is solely in the name of the seller. This will ensure that no loan has been taken against the property.

MAKING THE FINAL PURCHASE
  1. A sale agreement must be drawn on a Rs 50 stamp paper, which will mention the final amount, advance payment, time limit to pay the due amount and details of installments if any. You need to get it registered at the sub-registrar or Sub-District Magistrate. The NRI buyer's foreign address has to be mentioned in the sale agreement. He can appoint a representative in India (with a power of attorney) to act on his behalf. The power of attorney should be notarized with the Indian consulate in the buyer's country of residence.
  2. The property can be registered in the name of the NRI; and the holder of the power of attorney can sign on his behalf by producing a copy of the document to the appropriate authorities.
  3. The payment of purchase price, if any, should be made from either funds received in India through normal banking channels or funds held in a nonresident bank account. You could pay through rupeedenominated non-resident ordinary (NRO) or nonresident external (NRE) accounts and foreign currency non-resident (FCNR) accounts.

TIP: CMRS Group provides all assistance, guidance and support to make your property payment experience hassle free. The group has dedicated NRI relationship manager to help you going through the payment process.

Occupation Certificate (OC), the Hot Item which is rarely SERVED by Builders

Do you know the BDA had sanctioned the building plan and issued CC and OC for Mantri Tranquil project, but BESCOM disconnected the electricity finding the violations?

The reason, the BDA ignored the fact that the project was within BBMP limits and that the two blocks of the Mantri Tranquil were built on the storm water drain! The fact remains that the property buyers don't know the importance and meaning of occupation certificate in its true sense. This information asymmetry allows a builder to take customers for a ride.




It can be assumed and granted that the small budget homes will be made with little deviations and occupation certificate for the same should not be expected. Such homes have to wait for akarma sakarma to pay the penalty and regularise the construction to get the occupation certificate.

But how can you forgive the builders, who charge upwards of 75 lacs and do not provide valid and appropriate occupancy certificate?

Without OC, the building is technically unfit for occ…
