What is OC? and Why Rates Differ Drastically for Houses in Same Areas Some Facts

Happy New Year! May Your Dreams of Owning a Home Investing in homes and Buying New Homes take a Quantum Leap! All the Best!
What is OC?
While the future of housing construction companies is bright , people are opting for more and more larger homes, spaces with gardens, themed structures, latest amenities from wireless security systems to a modern contemporary design, we see the trend is also more towards living closer to nature.
Booking homes under construction helps to save a lot of money and  you get the home at considerable low rates per square foot. But there is also a lot of risk involved, will the project be completed on time? will the promised amenities be available for the buyers? will the builders follow all rules as quoted in the project?
Recently I have been searching for property and was astonished to see a lot of difference in houses rates. Some in the same areas and made beautifully were very high rates and some were very low. Yes the base rate is standard for a particular area and then each construction company or builder is willing to negotiate to complete the deal.
The most shocking discovery! Many building where people are living and everything is  hunky dory have not got Occupancy Certificate.
An Occupuncy certificate  is a document issued by the local Government Agency as approval that the builder has followed all construction rules and the project has been made as approved in their plan.
While most reputed builders follow norms there are few who may begin with the plan but as the project reaches completion modify the plan and then the project does not get OC.

Simply quoting that if there is a garden space the builder may impulsively add a theatre there or a Playground area is converted to shops for sale. Usually the most seen default in housing projects is for parking spaces which are approved  as stilt parking on ground floor according to plan on paper, where the real project has shops with all activity abuzz!
Then also flats are modified while in constitutions where the plan shows two room kitchen houses the builder modifies it according to demand and either makes them larger or smaller areas. The basic space surrounding each building is also compromised resulting in buildings made very close to each other not following the safely norms.
The legality of such spaces does come up and even though you will get a really good  bargain for such houses and flats it will always be a question as these houses do not get legally approved.And this again comes up with every bill and every document, the illegal status, and also while reselling the flat,, as the new buyer may want to see all the approved documents and status cleared before buying a flat from you.
Do check the documents before committing your precious money into under construction housing projects, or buying resale flats, one of the best ways is to take a home loan where the lender banks representatives do all the hard work for you and find out the details of the housing projects, and only then approve your home loan! Check the original papers of the flat or property and see the floor plan, there is mention of the area, and every detail, all will be clear!
