Delighted Customer

Last month I was invited by the builder to perform the final inspection and take possession of my apartment in Pune. Since I was in Netherlands, I neither had the time to visit India nor the skill set to perform the inspection. MACJ A Buyer’s Choice Home Inspections provided a quality solution to the problem.

The team from MACJ-ABCHI performed a thorough inspection of the apartment and clearly laid down all the defects and observations in the report. I could have never even imagined to perform such detailed but important checks on the apartment.

Because of the professional quality of the inspection and detailed defect report, the builder gracefully accepted the inspection report and agreed to fix all the defects mentioned on it. I can now peacefully accept the possession of the apartment, knowing that all issues have been identified by MACJ and fixed by the builder.

MACJ-ABCHI provided a professional service from beginning till end and I would recommend everyone to use a professional inspection team like MACJ-ABCHI before investing a lifetime of savings to buy a dream home.

Happy Customer

“I am Tanay Saraf Advocate & Partner, SB Legal Partners, a law firm at Calcutta High Court.

Our 30 year old home recently developed a damping situation wherein after a heavy rainfall, the ceiling would drip water in two rooms. My father who had constructed the building with his own hands was surprised where the source of water.

I told him about how MACJ Home Inspection from my BNI Chapter had modern day gadgetry and could detect the water source. We hired their services and MACJ Inspectors inspected the premises with complete ease and suggested by father to make other adjustments in the terrace to prevent future water seepage.

My father and I are very happy with  their service and would recommend their services to any family suffering from damp walls at their residence.

Home buyer shield

The Mamata Banerjee government has drafted a bill to protect home buyers that so far seems to have refrained from following the many states that have watered down central provisions.

The West Bengal Housing Industry Regulation Bill, circulated but not yet tabled, is almost identical to the Real Estate (Regulation & Development) Act promulgated by the Centre. Several states had chosen to frame diluted rules under the central act but Bengal is seeking to enact a law of its own.

The following are some of the key features of the Bengal bill:

  • All ongoing projects that are yet to get a completion certificate will come under the purview of an authority that will regulate the segment. Each phase of a large development will be treated as an individual project requiring registration under the authority. Several states had diluted this provision by exempting ongoing projects.
  • The authority will seek and upload on its website details of a project and the record of the builder.
  • The builder must rectify free of cost any structural defect detected up to five years from the date of handing over possession.
  • Seventy per cent of the amount received from buyers in a project has to be kept in a separate bank account to cover the cost of construction. The promoter can withdraw sums from this account in proportion to the percentage of completion. This provision is aimed at averting diversion to other projects — a recurring and debilitating problem.
  • Apart from minor changes, no addition or alteration can be made to sanctioned plans of buildings or common areas without written consent from two-thirds of the buyers. If a person owns multiple flats in a project, his or her consent will be quantified as that of one person.
  • If a builder fails to deliver on time and the buyer wishes to withdraw from the project, full refund, along with interest and compensation, will be mandatory.
  • If a promoter fails to follow the provisions for registering a project with the authority, a penalty of 10 per cent of the project cost can be imposed. Failure to comply with the authority’s orders can attract a three-year jail term.

Satisfied customer

“MACJ-A Buyer’s Choice Home Inspection has played a vital role in getting our dream home delivered in the most perfect manner. At first, I was hesitant about whether I should pay for such services but after seeing the report I realized that it was a good decision.

Before going for the inspection, all I could find were 5-6 issues in my flat but the MACJ-A Buyer’s Choice team did come up with a lot of other issues that needed to be fixed by the builder before giving possession.

The reports are exhaustive with the list issues and a photo for reference for each one of them.

Such reports also help us in getting the work done from the builder. After receiving the report, I now have a ready checklist which I can handover to the builder. The team is well equipped with .modern gadgets. I would like to thank MACJ- A Buyer’s Choice, Mr. Nitin and his team for being professional and committed.

I would definitely recommend their services to everyone.”
