Representation Of RERA Complaint

The Real Estate (Regulation and Development) Act, 2016 aims to protect the rights and interest of homebuyers from the illegal and unfair practices of the real estate developers and builders. A homebuyer can file a complaint against a builder with the RERA Authority of the state in which the property is situated. A RERA complaint can be filed against the delay of property possession, failure to obtain Completion or Occupancy Certificate, use of substandard quality of construction material or any other violation of RERA laws and rules.

Once the complaint is filed with the RERA Authority, the Adjudicating officer examines the complaints and either accepts or dismisses it. If the complaint is accepted, the RERA Authority informs the builder by sending a legal notice and assigns a date of hearing for the builder and buyer to appear before the court. The buyer needs to represent their matter before the Authority through a RERA Advocate to get the RERA order in their favour.
