3 BHK Flat Best Features

What are the best features of an 3 BHK flat?

1 BHK, 2 BHK, 3 BHK, 4 BHK Penthouse and the list goes on, the more the variety and the more is the confusion. And even if we have it all figured out, another confusion starts, what should be the feature that one should look for in a flat that they are going to look for.

But let’s hold for a moment, what is BHK Exactly – and hence what does it really mean for these BHKs and other forms of flats. Let’s try to help you out a bit by explaining the types in a bit detail, but here is a promise, this is going to be for a lifetime and you will never be wondering with these terms used and explained:

BHK Explained –

Bedroom, Hall and Kitchen. The first letter of each comprises and makes the BHK.

Why is it used – simply because it denotes the number of rooms that are present in the flat for your consumption? E.G. 3 BHK Means that the flat/property consists of 3 Bedrooms, one hall and one kitchen. Generally, it is assumed that a 3 BHK flat will have one Kitchen, 2 Balconies and 3 Washrooms but there is no fixed rule here, there can be 3 balconies or 2 Washrooms and it all depends upon the developer and his land usage guidelines or the planning that has gone into the particular project / Property.

And hence the abbreviation is used for:

  • 1BHK apartment that means 1 bedroom, hall, kitchen.
  • 2BHK apartment that means 2 bedrooms, hall, kitchen
  • 3BHK apartment that means 3 bedrooms, hall, kitchen
  • 4BHK apartment that means 4 bedrooms, hall, kitchen

However, there are a lot many variations to this as well. A 2BHK can have a servant quarter / or a study room, depending upon the requirement of the general investors/customer for the particular area. And the same goes with 3 BHK and so on.

Now the same abbreviation is used for Independent houses, Builder floor properties and VILLAS. However to make it easier for the customer, in the case of PLOTs – the general terminology is used that a 3 BHK flat can be built in the plot and hence the customer is clear in his / her mind as to how big or small can the plot be.

Now let’s talk about the features of a typical 3 BHK Unit / Flat.

If you are looking for a 3 BHK Apartments, there are some of the following criteria that are already in the mind of the developer / Broker which he uses to help you with, in order to make your decision:

  • You are a family of 3 to 4 people. You will enjoy the best of the space for each other. Live Expansively. Especially post Covid – the demand for bigger spaces for the family has seen an unprecedented growth. And the reason is very simple. Every individual need their own space to work from home, and if both the husband and wife are working, which generally is the case, you don’t want to be interrupted often.
  • You want space for each one of you – Even the kids have to take their classes’ online along with the other activities. Since our home is our most comfort zone, and that where we seek for the (Me time) or that particular corner where we feel the best even in the most not so relaxing moment. We must get a relaxing and soothing space when we like to unwind after a day full of work.
  • Privacy is of high importance – A 3 BHK will allow you to have three rooms and an ample space where you can easily maintain a balance between communal living and your privacy. You enjoy the much needed privacy for the whole family and especially when we have elderly with us, the kids also feel independent and unperturbed in their own happy space.
  • If you are a small family, you are thinking about the future, it may be that you are planning to expand your family or you are planning to provide space to the newly wedded couple in the future course which a 3 BHK can easily accommodate.
  • You want to enjoy more of the common area which allows you to enjoy ample family time with all the household with the eye contact.
  • Parking – a 3 BHK Ensures that you get at least one parking slot for you / your spouse’s car and this can be purchased also for the next one.

With time and during the on-going pandemic, , people have realized that, a home is the need of the hour. And just a home doesn’t work that much. The home has to be bigger, where a husband, wife, kid/s can have their own privacy, space, work and fun done all together. No wonder that all across the country the steep rise in the purchase of the bigger houses has become the need of the hour. You can pick-up the interview of any big real estate developer, it I really evident that the demand for bigger houses is only getting increased day by day.

The house is no longer just the place to live. The house has become the lifestyle and for a modern middle and upper middle class family, a 3 BHK is something that is the need of the hour. The increase in purchasing power and a preference for a luxury lifestyle has created a huge demand for 3 BHK properties in Lucknow.

If you wish to move in immediately, go for a ready-to-move-in project. You will have to make the entire payment in one go for a ready-to-move-in property.

Things you must look for in your neighborhood while buying a Flat

Things you must look for in your neighborhood while buying a Flat

Neighborhood, in today’s world, has become one of the most important aspects of living. All over the world, as we are experiencing the neighbors and either standing by or fighting with each other. The most live example is that of Russia and Ukraine, India, Pakistan and China, Iran and Iraq and the list goes so on. And if you have a neighborhood like that of NATO countries, life is much easy and more pleasant. A sheer thought of a nice neighborhood brings up a smile and vice versa. And similarly, when it comes to buying a flat or a house, location and neighborhood are two major important decisions to be taken care of.

Buying a home is one of the biggest decisions of a person’s lifetime. It is a dream come true for most people. One of the most crucial factors while buying a home is to choose a location that best suits the needs of you and your family. Each person may look for different things from their neighborhood in terms of the kind of lifestyle they have.

With no dearth of the variety of options that are available for a property in Lucknow that the decision to finalist your dream home may look overwhelming. Keep reading to find out the factors you must consider before deciding where to buy a home in Lucknow.

  • Amenities and Activities: The life that you desire for yourself and your family will determine your lifestyle. So choose a home that will fulfill the needs of your family. Apartments in Lucknow offer a number of amenities for your everyday comfort and convenience. Your home buying decision will depend on what your everyday life and needs look like. For instance, a young working professional will look for amenities like a gym, jogging track, clubhouse etc. to relax whenever he/she has the time in an apartment in Lucknow. A family with kids will look for a play area and sports facilities available on the campus. An elderly couple would prefer a place where this is a yoga zone, park and open green spaces.
  • Convenience: Choose your neighborhood so that you do not spend more time in traffic than actually enjoying your new home. Your home should be easily accessible to places of everyday importance like a convenience store and shopping mall. Availability of Public Transport like Metro, Buses etc. should also be easy to make your everyday commute hassle-free.
  • Secured Neighborhood: It is important to consider that the location you are finalizing is a safe and secured neighborhood. Make sure that your apartment has gated security. Especially in these times when both the partners are working professionals, it becomes all the more important to consider an apartment that has proper security arrangements.
  • Social Infrastructure: Choosing the location for your home is one of the most important factors in making the decision. You should choose a location so that your school, office and other places of daily commute are easily accessible. It is also important to have good connectivity with markets, schools, hospitals, railway stations, airports and other such important places.
  • Transportation: as it sounds, the lack of transportation is a huge factor in deciding upon the purchase of your property. Even if we are well equipped with our own commute, these days that is not the only criteria. We are living in a digital world and we make a lot of our purchases through online Mediums, but as a matter of fact, there are a lot of places where home delivery or transportation is not available by the e-commerce players, in the long run, that can make our lives more complicated and we would be running for small little things to the shops that will charge us obnoxious amounts for petty things. More so the public transport like connectivity from Rail, Metro, Bus and Cab services should also to be searched upon before the final decision of closing on the property deal. 
  • Culture: Whether you want to stay in a quiet family-friendly neighborhood or a busy urban neighborhood is a question you should ask yourself before you come to a decision. You want to live in a place where people have a lifestyle similar to yours. An elderly couple would want to live in a quiet neighborhood whereas a young couple or a family with kids would look for a place which is bubbling with activities like clubhouse sports facility, park, nearby market, schools etc. So do make sure that you take into account all your needs while making this decision.

Buying a home is the biggest decision for a family so do take your own time to discuss with your family about the kind of place they want to live in. We hope this gives you all the things you must look for in your neighborhood while buying a home.

The best advice would be to get the information about the stamp duty beforehand
5. Buyers Liability – in regard to the agreement of sale, it is the prime liability of the buyer to pay for the stamp duty as stated by the authority books. If discussed and agreed upon, the buyer and the seller can share the stamp duty equally or as per the decided terms as shared and accepted before the sale deed.

6. When is the stamp duty payable?
The Stamp duty is payable much before the execution of the document or at the max, it should be paid on the date of execution of the document or on the next working day of executing such a document. Execution of the document means putting a signature on the instrument by the person’s party to the document.

According to the provisions of Section 12 of the Indian Stamp act 1899, any person executing (Signing) an instrument—affixed with an adhesive stamp—shall cancel the adhesive stamp by writing on or across the stamp his full name or only the initials. If such an adhesive stamp has not been cancelled in an aforesaid manner, such a stamp is deemed to be stamped.

10. What is the instrument?
Any document by which any right or liability is, or purports to be, created, transferred, limited, extended, extinguished, or recorded. The duty is payable on instruments and not on transactions. Stamp duty should be charged on the idea of the contents of the instrument only. If any information essential for working out stamp duty is missing in the instrument, the valuation officer can call for it. Information such as the area of the flat, number of floors, and year of construction must be mentioned in the agreement for a quicker response.

11. How should instruments stamped with an impressed stamp be written?
As per the supply of Section 13 of the Indian Stamp Act , 1899, any instrument on an impressed stamp, shall be written in such manner that the stamp may appear on the face of the instrument and can’t be used for or applied to the other instrument i.e., cancel the adhesive stamp so affixed by writing on or across the stamp his name or initials. If such an adhesive stamp has not been cancelled in an aforesaid manner, such a stamp is deemed to be unstamped.

12. Is stamp tax payable on all instruments/documents concerning the transfer of immovable property?
Any transfer of immovable property or documents shall attract the stamp duty, Except for transfer by Will (or by original nomination in a co-operative housing society) all transfer instruments/documents including agreements to sell, conveyance deed, gift deed, mortgage deed, exchange deed, partition deed, power of attorneys, leave and license agreement, agreement of tenancy and lease deeds have to be properly stamped before registration.

It is clarified that when a nominee transfers the flat subsequently in the name of the legal heirs, that transfer instrument should only be stamped as per the market value. If the flat has been purchased in a co-operative housing society on or after 10-12-1985, the buyer has to pay the stamp duty on the market value as per the Ready Reckoner. A flat purchased through an agreement purchasable on or before 9-12-1985 required stamp paper of Rs. 5 only. Sounds a bit old but However, a flat purchased on or before 9-12-1985 will require stamp duty on the market value at the time of conveyance of the property in favour of the society. The concept of payment of stamp duty on market value was introduced from 04-07-1980 will be charged on agreement value only.

Owning a luxurious house is like dream come true for most of the people, enjoying all the comforts of the world in your own home. These days every other real estate developer uses the word ‘Luxury’ to define their properties in Lucknow. We have defined the basic parameters that will help you categorise a project as Luxurious.

  • Location

Location is one of the key factors. The project should ideally be located at a prominent area in the city like Gomti Nagar, Shaheed Path, Sushant Golf City. It should have easy connectivity with the rest of the areas in the city for day to day commute as well as good social infrastructure available in the city.

  • Space

  • Floor-to-ceiling Height

The floor to ceiling height should be at least 12 feet. The more the height the more the feeling of openness and grandeur. The floor should ideally have marble or wooden flooring.

  • Home techs

The House should be equipped with centralized air-conditioning. Smart home technologies are in high demand these days, technologies that monitor and manage systems inside and outside the house. Whether it is locking the doors or controlling the thermostat, variable-speed air conditioning, appliances, music, and lights, one can look after their home from anywhere in the world using smartphones.

  • Security

The need for security is increasing day by day in India. The demand for installation of security within the house is also rising. Besides human security in the form of round-the-clock security personnel, electronic surveillance units should be installed in each and every corner of the property. 

  • Amenities

If you are staying in an apartment it is important to consider the amenities that your project is offering. Some prestigious builders from Lucknow like Paarth Infra, Omaxe, Ansal are offering high-end amenities like luxurious state of the art clubhouse, fully equipped gymnasium, lush green spaces, amphitheatre, multiplex, swimming pool, to name a few. Do make sure to check out the amenities the project is offering before making your decision.

  • Specifications

The material used in construction should bee premium,for example flooring should be Italian marble or wooden, the kitchen should have high quality premium fittings. Also if you are going in for a residential apartment, make sure to check the quality of material being used in the other parts of the project as well like garden, parking, lawns, pathways,etc.

The above-mentioned points are some of the features for a luxury house. Thus next time when you go searching for a luxury property, you should keep the above points in mind lest you might end up getting duped and lose your hard earned money.

Nowadays, demand for luxury houses is rising and developers are incorporating interesting technological innovations into their projects in order to attract a niche set of clients. Hence, the market for such luxury houses will only grow and get bigger in future.
