What if one fails to get RERA registration in Haryana
If the builders or the real estate agents in Haryana miss out the chance to register themselves under RERA it will become difficult for them to survive their business. It was reported that without obtaining the mandatory registration no real estate agent will be able facilitate the purchase or sale of any apartment, plot or building. Since registration is mandatory under the central act there are no chances that the deadline will be extended. It was reported that in Punjab everyone will have to register before July 31 under the newly created real estate watchdog.
