• What is fees & time for property paper verification in Bangalore?

I'm planning to buy a property from a local builder in Bangalore. He's saying that he'd give us an OC. The property paper involves a GPA and also I'm not sure if all the required approvals are there so that we can get an OC after construction completion.
The builder is saying that he would get the registration done soon, however he might not give us the possession till early next year. So I'm doubtful towards the OC.
So I want to get the papers verified by a good lawyer. So I just want to know what is the general fees a lawyer charges for property paper verification and also the time it takes to do the verification.

1. The possession has to be delivered within the time frame incorporated in the sale agreement, failing which you can sue the builder to either recover the possession or the amount paid to him with compensation for delay.

2. There is nothing such as 'general fee' of lawyer. There is no fixed fee structure for the fee of lawyers. If you engage a competent lawyer for the purpose then be prepared to shell out at least one lakh. It should not take more than 2 weeks for him to complete the due diligence,

There is no fixed fee for lawyers on any particular task.  You want to take a legal opinion to purchase the property after vetting all the documents and relevant papers properly. 
You may have to consult a skilled experienced lawyer who is well versed with the subject knowledge.  The fee aspect will be let known by the lawyer who you would be consulting.

A. Unless obtained OC, you will have no marketable title over the property and you never permitted under the law to occupy the premises. Generally, majority builder will register the property before completion by mentioning the OC commitment clause in the Sale Deed or agreement.

B. You can choose any advocate from this blog by consulting admin of this website. 

C. You need to pay the legal fee based on advocate legal fee structure. There is fixed legal fee and it may be varied from one advocate to another advocate.

D. Once you provide the legal documents then the preliminary report will be given. Thereafter, if any documents is required based on submitted documents that they may ask more documents. Later, after satisfaction of the counsel they will release the final report. It is also depends upon advocate's caliber and charismatic.
