According Ravi Group, Construction quality is one of the most crucial factors to be considered when buying a home. It is imperative for the buyers to ascertain the quality of project before investing in it. However, determining the quality of construction becomes a challenging task in case of pre-launch of projects, under-construction or completed flats, not having any guarantee on the quality. In order to ascertain the quality of a project on their own and get a fair idea, the buyers can look for third-party audits and certifications pertaining to the project.
Many buyers, after taking the possession of their flats realize that the quality of the project is not what the developers claimed it to be at the time of purchase. The most common issues pertain to leakage, uneven plastering of walls and electric wiring, faulty alignment of doors, window frames and grills and sub-standard flooring.
“The quality of building materials used, not only affects the safety of projects, environment-friendliness and resource conservation but also impacts people’s vital interests and socio-economic development. If a developer doesn’t deliver quality projects, his goodwill will take a hit,” explains Gaurav Shah, director of sales and marketing, Ravi Group, one of the leading real estate entities.
Ravi Group further highlights that a code of conduct has been developed by The Confederation of Real Estate Developers’ Associations of India (CREDAI) in order to safeguard the interest of the customers and instill a sense of confidence in them. The code has been adopted by all 11,500 members of CREDAI spread across 154 cities and 23 states.
