RERA Telangana All You Need to Know

Telangana RERA Registration for Buyers’ Protection

When people buy a house, they  invest their lifetime savings and/or commit to pay large sums of money as EMIs for a decade or two into the future to repay a home loan. Needless to say, they have a lot at stake. 

What if they are faced with real estate frauds? We have heard about people losing all their money and facing financial problems after being duped by real estate agents and promoters. We have also heard about cases where victims of real estate frauds have gone to the extent of committing suicide.

Home buyers, thus, need security from real estate frauds. They need an authority they can report grievances to and seek redressal of disputes.

RERA Telangana Comes to The Rescue of Home Buyers

The central government enacted the Real Estate (Regulation and Development) Act in 2016, to protect home buyers. This act requires all states to appoint a Real Estate Regulatory Authority (RERA), and ensure that the act is implemented in the states.

Subsequently, the Government of Telangana implemented the Telangana State Real Estate (Regulation & Development) Rules in July 2017 for regulation and promotion of the real estate sector in Telangana.

What Does RERA Telangana Do?

  • It protects consumer interests
  • It regulates the real estate sector
  • It ensures transparency in real estate projects
  • It maintains a website with records of registered real estate projects and agents for public viewing
  • It offers a mechanism for speedy dispute redressal.
  • It provides an Appellate Tribunal to hear appeals from the decisions, directions or orders of the RERA.
