Q: I own a flat in Uttarahalli which does not have A-Khata and there is no DC conversion for my apartment. Not sure why the builder has not done the DC conversion before building the apartment. Can I do the DC conversion now for my flat ? OR is it falls under Akrama-Sakrama ? Please advise.
Latest Answer: DC Conversion is a legal mechanism, which is compulsory Under Section 95 of Karnataka Land Revenue Act that helps a property owners or an incumbent to make a formal application to the Deputy Commissioner of the District, asking for his permission for change of land utilization, from agricultural to nonagricultural (which may include Residential/Public Use/Commercial) purpose. The Jurisdictional revenue authority will acknowledge the application, depending on the rules and laws devised for this purpose, and subsequently, the order may be given.The Conversion fee/fine is imposed and an authorized, rather Official Memorandum (OM) is circulated to the applicant, guiding the applicant to ante up the same amount in the state treasury box. Only on the confirmation of payment of the amount, the Conversion Order will be issued by the Deputy Commissioner, however,the Conversion Oder will include certain terms and conditions. The owner/occupant must adhere to all the mentioned terms and conditions. The owner/occupant must adhere to all the mentioned terms and conditions of the conversion order in order to avoid the order becoming invalid or inoperational, without any kind of further notification to the owner.

Q: What happens if the developer leaves the project/layout which he has supposed to complete in the middle (without completing the full layout) and after i purchased and registered my plot. Will it be a problem to my registered plot ? Who will take care of the project/layout as the develoer has left it in the middle. Thanks Sai

Q: I am pllanning to buy a plot from a just launched layout (near Kumbalagodu of mysore road) from a developer. Developer is saying this is BMICAPA approved. But how to make sure this just launched layout has been approved or sancationed by BMICAPA and there are no legal issues with this layout. Can we check the BMICAPA approval number in any registrar office or in BMICAPA website ? Please advice. Thanks Sai.

Latest Answer: I think you can check if the plot is approved by BMICAPA with the order number in their website. You can also take help from your legal expert to check whether the layout is approved by BMICAPA and BMRDA. The builder will also have the legal documents with him.

Q: One of my relatives wants to buy a property of 200 sqyds. The owner of the land was allotted this land in 1991 from Authority. He has been allotted the plot on lease for 99 years. Now they want to make a registered agreement on stamp paper at the time of registry in future. Is the registered agreement legal? If not then what is the process of agreement so the owner cannot deny the sale of the plot to them?
Latest Answer: Since it is a leased property it cannot be sold but you can ask the lessee for a copy of lease deed and check if he has the right to assign the leasehold land or not. After checking everything you can enter into a registered lease deed.

Q: My dad bought a flat three year sago in a project have three blocks. Our flat is in B block and it is of 1, 040 sqft but the sanctioned plan is only for 900 sqft. Now I want to get an OC for my flat. Is this possible and what is the procedure?

Latest Answer: Occupancy certificate (OC) is a legal prerequisite for a buyer, before heading for an apartment. Furthermore, having an OC is the license for a buyer to apply for Khata. However, during property registration, occupancy certificate is of no account, which often leads a buyer to formulate the notion that this authorizing document is wide of the point. The OC is taken for the whole builder and not for a single flat. This certificate is generally obtained from the local bodies like City Corporations or City Municipalities The area of the flat is calculated on the super built up area you have to get the ratio of the built to super built up area from the builder. You can also check the built up area in the floor plan given to you by the builder
