What do we inspect while we take possession of your property from a builder in Mumbai if you are not in Mumbai?


Before taking the keys from the builder, we make sure that the owner receives the original documents and photocopies of all the other essential documents from the builder.

We also get the No Objection Certificate, Encumbrance certificate, Commencement Certificate, Completion Certificate, and all the other documents on your behalf. And then, our team will check the documents in a thorough manner.

Fixtures and fittings:

After checking the documents, we ensure to check the fitting and fixtures at the time of booking. We also make sure that the builder has provided the same brand that he promised you at the time of booking.


There are cases where the builder promises to provide amenities at the time of booking. But in certain situations, there might be a delay in providing these amenities. Or the other case may be that some of the amenities are not in working condition at the time of possession. So, we make sure that these amenities are available as mentioned in the agreement.

Switches and plug points:

We ensure that all the sockets, plugs, and bulb holders are in working condition. We also ensure that these are connected to the main supply. We check if the main fuse, switches, and plug points in the house are working properly. We also check if the miniature circuit breaker (MCB) is of good quality.

Wall paints and cracks:

This is another important thing that we check while taking possession on your behalf. We ensure that all rooms have double-coat paint with no visible patches. We also make sure that there are no cracks in the foundation, ceilings, and walls.

Drainage outlets:

Drainage outlets are one of the main areas that you need to check before taking possession of a property. We check all the drainage outlets in your property and make sure that they are working well and not clogged. We also check that all the taps and bathroom fittings are in working condition and there are no leakages.
