What Is HRERA? A Must-Know Guide for Home Buyers

There isn’t a dearth of doubt in the fact that Haryana is the most rapidly developing state in the country.

The urban population is increasing at a good rate and the city is coming up with numerous urban estates and state-of-the-art townships. This land is presenting mesmerizing opportunities to entrepreneurs, developers, and buyers, investors, facilitating organic and systematic real estate. Maintaining a transparent and harmonious relationship between the developers and buyers is important.

RERA Haryana or HRERA began in July 2017 with the launch of a portal in 2018 to help citizen’s access information and services more easily. We will discuss HRERA in this blog post, what its provisions are for homebuyers, and what steps you should be aware of to take advantage of them.

What exactly HRERA means for homebuyers? 

RERA in Haryana is divided into two independent jurisdictions, Gurugram (Gurgaon) and Panchkula. HRERA Haryana is important for homebuyers for what reason?

  1. It is important to know that the RERA Haryana Act here provides that if a developer crosses the delivery guidelines, you will get a penalty interest rate from the builder if you are an existing homeowner. However, this penalty rate may vary from state to state.
  2. It also ensures that developers deposit 70% of the collected amount for new homebuyers to make sure the money won't be diverted from the existing project to another. 
  3. A property dealer is not allowed to charge more than 1% as commission to a buyer or seller under HRERA. 
  4. Homebuyers are left in a bind when realtors fail to deliver projects and disappear, putting them at risk of losing their homes. 

In order to provide additional strength for homebuyers, the act also requires developers to only sell their projects once all clearance requirements have been met. According to the Haryana RERA, disputes between builders and buyers regarding the RERA-registered projects must be resolved within 120 days of their occurrence.

Similarly, the RERA Haryana Act aids developers in promoting projects within Panchkula and Gurugram by promoting the registered projects. As part of the registration process on the RERA Haryana website, developers and builders are typically required to provide the following information and documents:

  • Authority under which the project is enrolled
  • Name of the project
  • Copy of the license and the schedule of land
  • Renewal letters in relation to the license validation
  • Ownership proof of the licensed area
  • Any agreements and documents at the time of license granted with the Directorate of Town & Country Planning (DTCP)
  • Demarcation plans, approved zoning plans, layout plans
  • Cashflow statements
  • Personal proof including Aadhar, Pan card, etc, of the developers 
  • Commercial information of the company
