Are you planning to construct your dream home? Then be prepared to pay a hefty fee to buy ground space over and above what the existing policies allow. The Common Zoning Rules drafted through the Urban Development branch has introduced a new concept of top class FAR (ground vicinity ratio). This could doubtlessly burn a hole inside the wallet of belongings owners and shoppers. It has additionally created a variety of ambiguity some of the humans. DH interacted with citizens and experts to throw extra mild on the difficulty.
Shakuntala Iyer, chairperson, National Real Estate Development Council (NAREDCO), Karnataka says, “It is an acknowledged reality that the real property is an unorganized sector. The circulate to implement top class FAR is a welcome selection. But the thought to lessen the present permissible FAR approach developers have to buy premium FAR paying additional price.”
The authorities, she says, need to relax the rules so that the developers can absorb more tasks.
“It has to lessen the load on developers to encourage people to shop for their dream home,” she says.
In view of the destiny developments in actual estate, Shakuntala says the authorities have to verify the infrastructure provisions in line with urban making plans. Besides, the procedure of Transferable Development Rights (TDR) to increase the variety of flooring must be made less difficult and greater credible for a developer.
Jaffer Khan, CEO, Jeff Design Studio, Bengaluru says in line with the FAR rules if the height is permissible and if the FSI (Floor Space Index or FAR) isn’t always utilized, the assets owner has an option to shop for TDR and construct on it.

He reasons that going vertical, at present, is vital due to land scarcity. “If the developer is prepared to pay a certain amount to every ground, the builder can go vertical. There are some elements that govern the permissible FSI: plot quantity, ground coverage, and the road width.”
The builders say better FSI could now not necessarily encourage inexpensive housing as the norms should be relaxed preserving the pursuits of each developer and client in mind. “The intensification of density in line with care needs to increase in tandem with FSI for inexpensive housing. Also, the authorities have to earmark the extra budget for other services inclusive of water, power, and sewage.”
Nagaraj Reddy, chairman, CREDAI, Karnataka says that the objective of introducing the top rate FAR Property owners premium
via decreasing the permissible FAR is to gather a fee based totally on the market fee of the assets. This will generate revenue for BBMP/BDA/other municipal or companies across Karnataka. It isn’t compulsory. “Only if the builders or the land owners need to boom the built-up place, they need to pay and avail the top class FAR,” he says.
The circulate is being touted as one that might improve ease of doing enterprise. But Reddy reminds that its implications will be felt via each the client and developer. The land price of the mission may be higher and the flats could be extraordinarily pricey.
The expenses will move up by means of at the least 25%. The current land prices of the land must come down, but land owners will by no means lessen their costs and they’ll postpone their sales. There will no longer be plenty sale transactions and it will lead to sales loss to the authorities, he cautions.
The authorities, he shows, should no longer reduce the prevailing FAR. Instead, it needs to introduce top class FAR in addition to the present FAR where the road width is more than 18 meters so that the land cost can be less expensive and the flats may be less costly.
Premium FAR, he says will affect the general public and assets proprietors more than the builders. “The builders continually calculate the FAR price of the land before they purchase it for improvement. The government ought to encourage more inexpensive housing initiatives,” he says.
“Fiduciary” is basically defined by Black’s Law Dictionary as a term derived from Roman law which means, as a noun, a person or legal entity, holding the character of a trustee, with respect to the trust and confidence involved as scrupulous good-faith and candor towards another’s affairs. A fiduciary also has duties which are described as involving good-faith, trust, special confidence, and candor toward another’s interests. Typical fiduciary duties are imposed on and include such relationships as executor, administrator, trustee, real estate agents, attorneys, and, of course, property managers. A person or company who manages money or property, i.e., the manager, for other people must exercise a standard of care in that the interests of the money or property owners are placed above and beyond those of the property manager. In some states, like California for example, a property manager is statutorily defined as an individual or entity which has the same duties as a trustee, i.e., a fiduciary.
The way I always explain it to clients, using my hands to demonstrate, is that my interests end at the top of my head (one hand at the crown of my head), but the client’s interest rise above and beyond my head and take precedent over my own (holding both of my hands above my head in a clasped position). Most people understand the gesture and comprehend that as a property manager and a lawyer my interests are much lower than those of the clients in our relationship.
Common Fiduciary Duties Owed by Property Managers
Since a property manager is a fiduciary they must act with the highest good-faith and fair dealing with respect to the owner’s asset, disclose all material information that may affect the owner’s decision-making with respect to that asset, and can’t in any way, shape or form act adversely to the owner’s interests. This may sound easy, but there are situations that arise that tempt even the best property managers to sometimes not act in their client’s best interests to suit their own self-interested convenience. Unfortunate as that may sound it happens regularly.
The following is a short list of some common sense duties, rights, and wrongs when a fiduciary relationship exists between a manager and an owner.
A manager should have a written agreement with their clients and may even be legally entitled to profit from services for which they provide to the owner, however, a manager may not secretly profit from this relationship. For example, a manager may charge an eight percent markup on materials and services provided by vendors to the owner’s property. This is legal and acceptable provided that the agreement between the parties is in concert with the markup. If this markup was not in the agreement then the law requires a property manager to disgorge or relinquish any and all secret profits derived from the relationship. There are so many possible examples of this, but a common one is a manager making a percentage profit on work and services provided to their clients but not disclosed; like a new roof, bathroom remodel, repairs to interior walls, etc.
A property manager is required to disclose any and all rental offers received along with documentation of those offers such that the property owner is well informed about all potential tenants. It is easy for a manager to fail to provide names of potential tenants that don’t necessarily qualify or are poor credit risks as this would involve more work for the manager.
