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


Before taking the keys from the builder, we make sure that you have received the original documents and photocopies of all the essential documents from the builder. We also obtain important documents like No Objection Certificate, Encumbrance certificate, Commencement Certificate, Completion Certificate, and all the other documents on your behalf. Our team will thoroughly check the documents.

Features and fittings:

One of the important things we inspect after checking the documents is fitting and features promised to you at the time of booking. These include an electrical switchboard, doorknobs, bathroom fittings, etc. We also make sure that the builder has provided the same brand that he promised you at the time of booking.


You may have been promised by the builders a plethora of amenities such as a swimming pool, clubhouse, gym, or even a golf course at the time of booking. But it may happen that some of these may be delayed, or not in a ‘working’ condition at the time of possession. So, we make sure that these amenities are available as per the agreement.

Switches and plug points:

We ensure that all the sockets, plugs, and bulb holders are in working condition and are connected to the main supply. We check if the main fuse in the house is working properly and all switches and plug points are working. 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 when we take possession of your property from the builder in Chennai 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 all the taps and bathroom fittings are in working condition and there are no leakages.

Obtain all sets of keys:

After we thoroughly inspect and complete all the above-mentioned processes, we make sure that all sets of keys to the property are obtained. This includes the set of keys for your property from the maintenance agency too if they have one.
