“Under the law, any developer who builds a housing company must enter into a written tripartite agreement with any buyer who has already purchased an apartment in the project or is about to buy a home,” says Vijay Gupta, CMD, Orris Infrastructures. “This agreement clarifies the status of all parties involved in real estate transactions and monitors all documents,” he says. The bank begins to pay the loan amount to the client on behalf of the borrower as soon as they have all signed the tripartite agreement. In such a situation, the bank did not guarantee the credit for the construction of housing by a material guarantee until the MS of such housing was established by the borrower in favour of the bank. This usually only happens after 18-20 months, the time it takes the client to execute the deed of sale of the apartment or property for the benefit of the borrower. In the event of bankruptcy of the client due to an excess of commitment to the real estate market or a slowdown in the markets, the bank may be without tangible security. This can harm the interests of the bank`s depositors. What are the main details mentioned in the tripartite agreement?
