About this Course

The Real Estate Regulatory Authority (RERA) is the regulator of the real estate industry in India, established in 2016 under the RERA Act. It aims to protect the rights and interests of consumers and property buyers by promoting uniformity and standardisation of business practices and transparency of transactions in the real estate sector. RERA tries to balance the interests of consumers and promoters, builders and developers through a list of dos and don'ts for them.

This course has been designed for property buyers, builders, real estate developers and promoters, real estate agents, lawyers, chartered accountants and other professionals associated with the real estate industry.

Despite the implementation of RERA in 2016, many of us are still unaware of the major changes that have been brought about by these laws and regulations. Even though there is a proper legal framework for real estate now, we still rely on hearsay and past experience of our friends and neighbours while trying to understand RERA laws and our rights as buyers or even our liabilities as promoters or agents. This course will be your guide to understand the laws yourself without having to rely on the understanding or lack of understanding of others! For professionals such as lawyers, agents or CAs in the real estate sector, it will be your handbook and professional companion to help you advise your clients better.
