UPRERA Requires Developers to Prove Land Ownership for Project Registration

    Synopsis: UPRERA now demands developers to show proof of land ownership when registering projects. If the land belongs to someone else, the promoter needs written consent and a joint development agreement (JDA) with the owner.

    The Uttar Pradesh Real Estate Regulatory Authority (UPRERA) has introduced a new rule for promoters registering projects: they must demonstrate ownership of the project land.

    According to UPRERA officials, this rule is crucial because without proper ownership or consent from the land owner, promoters cannot legally transfer titles to buyers or allottees.

    In a directive issued on March 16, 2024, UPRERA clarified that promoters must have legal ownership of the land for project registration. If the land belongs to someone else, promoters must obtain consent and a registered JDA with the land owner.

    Promoters are also required to submit an affidavit confirming that the project land is free from any encumbrances.

    Sanjay Bhoosreddy, Chairman of UPRERA, emphasized that RERA provisions mandate obtaining completion and occupancy certificates for projects and transferring titles to buyers through registered deeds. This rule ensures consumer rights protection and facilitates smooth conveyance deeds without legal obstacles.

    Bhoosreddy highlighted that UPRERA faced challenges in processing project registration applications when promoters lacked legal land ownership or consent from land owners.
