What does Consumer Protection Act,1986 govern in Real Estate?

 Consumers in the real estate industry are prone to a higher degree of risk than they are in the other sectors of the economy. Though progressive, the real estate industry is immensely unregulated. It lacks regulations, it lacks the required ethics. Consumers are exploited by taking advantage of these limitations that plague the real estate industry. The housing sector is immensely opaque, due to which consumers are unable to procure complete information or enforce accountability against builders and developers. There exists no binding regulatory body to the industry, which affects it by delaying completion of projects, diversion of funds collected from buyers; one-sided contracts in the absence of adequate supply; reneging on contractual commitments by both the developers and the buyers; and constraints in financing and investment options available to the sector, thereby affecting its long-term growth.

Therefore, the consumer Protection Act,1986 protects consumers from such risks as huge money is involved in real estate matters. Where a purchaser can file a suit if the purchaser finds that the Developer is trying to cheat or take to fraudulent means to gain extra from the pockets of intended purchaser or deviating from the Agreement as made.

In the last couple of years, there has been an enormous upsurge in the real estate sector and buildings are mushrooming everywhere of metropolitan cities in India. Inferable from this extensive development of the sector and consumers' willingness to invest in real estate, the builders have possessed a position of predominance and the arrangement of standard shape contracts or uneven agreements has additionally worsened the situation.
