The super area includes the proportionate share of common facilities, such as the lobby, corridors and staircases. The built-up area is the size of the apartment, including the walls. The carpet area is the actual size of the apartment.

A home buyer must pay attention to the carpet area that the builder specifies in the agreement, they always state the super built-up area that is 20-30 per cent more than the carpet area, so one must insist on finding the promised carpet area. Take a look at the building plans, so that you know the real size of the living space that you will get in the apartment.

     7. Possession:

Developers may verbally commit a certain delivery date when you go for site visit but it is extremely important to check the project completion date on the  RERA website and also the date mentioned on the agreement. It is advisable to not be carried away by the verbal commitments by the developer's team.
