The usual arrangement is 40:60. Here you are expected to provide your land for construction. While the developer will provide the capital and labour needed for construction. Depending upon how the investment equation changes, the ratio will change. The more you invest, the better the ratio becomes.

In a nutshell, if 100 flats come out, you will get 40 of those. Joint venture projects are picking up popularity due to growth slow down in many metros (pune, bangalore, hyderabad to name a few) and also because it minimizes the risk for developer to acquire a land (for a very high capital) and sell 100 % of inventory in time.

1. Once the agreement is executed it becomes the charter of mutual rights and liabilities.

2. Get a flawless agreement drafted by a lawyer.

3. Retain the remedy of approaching the civil courts instead of choosing arbitration.

You need to enter in a developers agreement and you need to negotiate the deal which is beneficial to you and make sure that you are not stuck in any financial year legal obligations based on the agreement

It will be a good idea to get the draft agreement be checked by an advocate before you sign the agreement

Advantages of a fixed bid

Easier Budgeting. You agree on a price and are able to plan on it fairly reliably.

A fixed bid may protect you if the job is unexpectedly expensive (within reason, generally if the scope creeps too much the initial fee won't hold up).

With a fixed bid, a contractor has an incentive to expedite the work and move on to their next project.

Disadvantages of a fixed bid

Contractors may pad their bids to protect themselves against unforeseen circumstances.

You will miss out on potential savings if the job ends up using less time and materials.

If the contractors expenses start to exceed their expectations, they may cut costs to get back under their target budget, reducing the quality of the final product. This can be protected against by carefully defining the desired result within the agreement.

The pros and cons of a time and material approach are the exact opposite.

Fixed bids are generally used for larger protects. Both parties agree on a price that they will be happy with and proceed. With smaller projects, it can be difficult to come up with a good fixed bid price. It is essentially a regression to the mean problem.
