Traditional mode of payment:
Under this mode of payment plan you are required to pay 10% to 15% of the purchase price when you book your property, another 80% to 90% within a given time-frame. The remaining amount you can pay within 45 to 60 days. The remaining amount of the cost of the property include stamp duty, registration fee and other legal charges. The major risk with these kinds of property is delay in construction and delivery of the property. At times, you receive a property with some changes, which was not similar to the project shown at the time of booking. Delayed in the construction also increase the price of property you have booked. In such cases, you are bound to pay the increased price of the property.

This is an easy way of payment and has many advantages of choosing the under-construction property.
