  • Q2. How is Modi Properties is different from most other builders?
    Modi Properties is different from other Builders primarily on four counts: (a) Design: All our Projects are designed by reputed architects. The emphasis in the design is to enhance the quality of life of the occupants rather than maximize the area constructed. Accordingly, all units have proper ventilation, good vastu, access through wide corridors/passages and are designed to maximize usable space. Typically the constructed area is restricted to about 70% of the maximum permissible construction to ensure large open spaces. (b) Amenities: Affordable housing is synonymous with poor quality. However, Modi Properties is providing affordable housing of great quality with modern amenities like club house, swimming pool, sports facilities, landscape areas, generator backup, security etc., Customer not only enjoy a quality product at affordable prices, the amenities also improve their quality of life. (c) Transparent dealings: Customers can be assured about title, approvals and costs as these are clearly stated in our brochures, agreements and website. Clear and transparent dealings leave no scope of misunderstandings and customers can be certain about the terms of their purchase. (d) Timely completion: Date of completion is stated up front at the time of booking and Modi Properties has a near 100% track record of on time completion. Modi Properties understands that customers financing their purchase through housing loans can face severe hardship in case of delays, as payment of EMIs can be a burden.
  • Q3. How is quality ensured?
    Achieving quality is ensured by: (a) Using quality material. Most materials are purchased from the top 3 brands available in India and that to wherever possible directly from the manufacturers. (b) Quality of personal. Each site has several qualified engineers along with a team of supervisors and admin staff to ensure that construction is taken up exactly as per design and procedures laid out. (c) Quality check. At each stage of construction like RCC work, civil work and finishing works inspection is carried out by an in-house quality control team. Project managers at site can proceed to the next stage of construction only on clearance from the QC team. Reports with hundreds of check points are made at each stage of construction and are directly monitored by the top management.
  • Q4. What about guarantee against construction defects?

  • Q13. Is my booking transferable
    No. Your booking cannot be transferred.
  • Q14. Can I re-sell my flat/villa?

    After making an application for housing loan along with all required documents and processing fee, the housing finance company (HFC) will issue a sanction letter. The HFC may request for further documents which will have to be provided. Thereafter documentation like loan agreements, etc., need to be executed. HFC may also request for pre-EMI and EMI cheques as per their policy. On completing these formalities the HFC sends a copy of the cheque for the first tranche of the housing loan to the builder. On receiving a copy of the cheque the builder executes a sale deed and agreement of construction in favour of the purchaser. The originals are deposited with the HFC. The purchaser is required to pay the margin money, stamp duty, registration charges, VAT, etc., to the builder before the registration of the sale deed. The purchaser is also required to give to the builder security cheques for the amounts being released through the HFC and PDCs for the balance payments.

    In some cases we have made special arrangements with some HFCs wherein a tripartite agreement is executed between the purchser , builder and HFC. Here the registration of the sale deed will be done for the entire sale consideration at the time of completion of a flat/villa.   

    Our customer relations team will help you to complete these formalities. Incidental expenses payable to the document writer for registration, etc., also need to be paid to the builder. On a later date the purchaser has to send request letters to the HFC for release of balance loan depending on stage of construction. HFC on such request inspects the flat/villa and then releases the amounts. Please note that the liability to ensure the regular payment from the HFC to the builder is that of the purchaser. Our customer relations team shall help you in completing the entire process. However, the purchaser is required to give their full cooperation without any delay to our customer relations team.

  • Q21. What is the expected increase in price in the coming years?
    We do not guarantee or speculate on prices. Our company policy is to regularly increase the price of each flat/villas from the start of the project upto the completion of the project. In that way purchasers who have booked flats/villa at an early stage are likely to be substantially benefited.

It has been our endeavor to sell the flats/villa at reasonable prices to ensure that our purchasers enjoy a reasonable return on investment.
