Property Possession Delay - NCDRC


If possession is not delivered on time, the buyer can file a complaint for ‘deficiency in service’ in the consumer court against the builder. MyAdvo will help you find an expert consumer court lawyer and will help manage the case lifecycle.

Before filing a Consumer complaint, sending a legal notice to the builder acts as a final warning. In case the dispute is still not resolved, you should then file a Consumer complaint. To send a legal notice, click here.
