If you are buying a flat in Bangalore, watch out

GIREESH GOPINATH writes from Bangalore: Be very cautious before you book a flat with “Sri Lorven Builders” in Bangalore. The promoters are two brothers, Narasimman Reddy and Mallaya Reddy from Hyderabad. (Mallaya Raddy, the main owner, is said to be a government employee).

They were in operation in Andhra Pradesh for a few years under a different name. But once they were blacklisted, they have shifted to Bangalore and changed the brandname to “Sri Lorven”. But they continue to use the same tricks that has fetched them crores.

Their modus operandi is to offer a flat at a price lower than the market rate. Very decent and educated guys are placed near the reception area of their office to woo and win over customers.

Usually builders start selling the flat from the initial stage itself. But the Brothers Reddy start the marketing only when they finish 70 per cent of the construction. So, the first payment is 70% of the flat cost.

In another 20 or so days, they start threatening you: “Registrations in Bangalore are going to close soon. Please register your flat immediately”. But at the time of registration, they say: “Without getting 90% of the total cost we cannot register. Pay 90%, we will finish registration today and hand over the flat next month.”

Since only a portion of the construction remains to be completed, you think registration is more important and comply. Thus, they collect 90% of total flat cost and finish the registration in your name.

Once you pay 90% you are in their trap. They collect the same amount from almost all the customers, and then escape from the site. You cannot find the builders, the engineers, or even a worker again.

They also change all the mobile SIM cards and you will get “Please check the number” message if you call them. Using the same strategy, they begin work on four to five projects simultaneously.

All this time, frustration will be building up inside you. You have been paying EMIs for the last few months. Plus, you have been paying your current rent.

After five to eight months, one fine day Mallaya Reddy sends his brother, Narasimman, to the building site. This guy, to put it mildly, is not one of Bangalore’s more reputable characters.

He changes tack: “The market price of this flat, when compared to last year, has increased by Rs 2 lakh. Pay me that amount to get the remaining work done.”

You cannot argue anything with him because he is not the kind of person you would want to get into a conversation with. (He is always accompanied by more heavies and he claims that he has good political background. He slapped a couple of my fellow residents who are decent software engineers and who tried to protest.)

Some people who are frustrated in this transaction compromise, and pay the extra Rs 2 lakh thinking that it is better to pay the extra money instead of losing the Rs 20 lakhs which they have already paid.

Then the Reddy brothers will show some progress to those guys who paid the extra amount, just to emotionally force the other guys to pay. Once they collect it from everybody, they change the strategy again.

They say, “We never promised you electric fittings (switches, boards), lifts, flat doors, windows, bathroom pipes etc.”

(Initially you see the plan brochure and think that they are obvious from any builder, but there is a disclaimer written behind the brochure: “This brochure is purely conceptual and not a legal offering. The developers reserve the right to add/alter/delete any of the specification mentioned here”.)

This chain goes on and on…. and you will not get the flat even after 18 months of your initial payment.

One fine day after making some more money the brothers leave the place without providing even the basic amenities. We approached the bank from where we got the loan but to no use.

Finally we paid money from our pocket and got the balance work done. If you want any more clarifications regarding this, you can meet any resident at the following addresses in Bangalore:

1) Sri Lorven Castle, 5th Main, 7th Cross, Near Hasenda club, Maruti Nagar, Mallesh palya (Behind BEML gate).

2) Sri Lorven House, Kagadasapura, Vignana Nagar, behind SCT college.

3) Sri Lorven Paradise, Krisnanna Palya, Byappana halli, Old Madras Road.

4) Sri Lorven Villa, 4th cross, Wind Tunnel Road, Airport.

Sri Lorven Builders are also building more apartments near Whitefield, Banashankari, BTM, JP Nagar and Indira Nagar

Be very cautious. If you book a flat with them, that’s the end of your money and happiness. Please forward this to your friends and save them from this trap.

    I am amazed that people like this are allowed to take advantage of hard working people. The police must be in cahoots with these guys as well. There was a similar story from Pune that was posted last week.

    I am also surprised that the banks dont do anything about this. Ideally banks should stop funding the Lorven (I presume it stands for Lord Venkateshwara). The banks are probably fuelling this. The more loans they give out the better. They have nothing to lose. The people who buy this are the “mild” software types.

    hi ,

    my name is surya . i took a flat in sri loven homes , but i hadn’t faced any problem like this. do u people have full furnished proof about the information what u gave . please just check before u proceed .

  3. Bill Says:

    Hi, Even i booked a flat just recently but i didnt face any such problems, infact the flat was completely ready to occupy and all amenieties were made available, except lift which completed 90%

  4. shanti Tilak Says:

    This can be true. When we tried to book one flat in Bangalore thru Gopalan Enterprises, we got a mail from One Mrs.Shoba mentiong that the builders while marketing promises many things and when they handover the possession do not keep up their word and do not give many of the amenities which they promise.

    Why the bank finance these people without seeing the previous projects completed by them and interviewing the residents of those projects.

  5. owner Says:

    This is the feedback from Customer of Lorven Homes, Bangalore. You can check with this guy suryaksvas@yahoo.com.

    Hi,

    I feel this is the time for me reveal some facts on my experience with Lorven Builders, Bangalore.

    Every day iam getting calls / mails from my friends / relations to enquire about the
    Builders. Here with iam considering few points from the mail circulated on Lorven builders, Banglore and share my experience, so that you will know the facts.

    1) They came to Bangalore by changing the brand name to “Sri lorven” and started the same tricks here.

    Before buying the flat, I have enquired with my friends in hyderabad about the Lorvern builders. I have got positive feedback and got confirmed that they have ventures in hyd with Brand name Sri Lorven Estates.

    I get verified because first time they started business in blore when i book the flat.

    2) They offer flat at a very lesser price when compared to market price

    The rate appears to be cheap but I can say they are reasonable. The rates purely depend on the extra amenities providing in the apartment. If no swimming pool, party hall,
    and GIM then it is obvious that the rates are lower than the rates compared with flats providing with these amenities.

    Also the rates in Bangalore are governed by the site location like BDA, CMC or BMRD areas.
    The rate high particularly in the locations of Cauvery water supply is available.
    Initially they have started flats in CMC areas where there is no Cauvery supply is there.

    3) Considering the Registration point.

    Definitely I have got some benefit out it by registering few days earlier.
    Builder told me that land rates are getting revised soon and we will go for Registration. They never forced me for the registration.
    After i register my flat, the land rates are increased -> registration charges raised.

    4) Once you pay 90% you are in his trap. He collects it from almost all the
    Residents, and then he escapes from the site. You cannot find builder
    ,engineer or even a worker again. He immediately changes all the mobile SIM
    cards and you will get “Please check the number” message if you call
    him.Using the same strategy he starts four to five more projects
    simultaneously.

    * This is not true as he never changed his mob. Iam communicating with same
    mob number from last 1 year. They have group call facility and you call
    the main owner if you have any issues.

    5) The decent guy mentioned in the mail still reachable on the same mob. (9448496960/5)

    6) this guy changes the strategy. He says “The market price of this flat, when
    compared to last year increased by 2 lakhs. (it is obvious that market price
    will increse in one year and that is the damn reason why we purchse a flat)
    Pay me that amount to get the remaining work done”. You cannot argue
    anything because he is a gunda who can speak only foul road side language.
    He treats customers just like dogs.(He is always accompanied by more gundas
    and he claims that he has good political background. Even he slapped 2 or 3
    of my fellow residents who are decent software engineers and who tried to
    protest him.) Some people who are frustrated in this transaction compromise
    and pay that 2 lakh amount thinking that it is better to pay 2 lakhs instead
    of loosing 20 lakhs which they already paid.Then he will show some progress
    to those guys who paid the extra amount, just to emotionally force the other
    guys to pay.Once he collects it from everybody, then he changes the strategy
    again.

    * As for as this point concerned, I have not paid any extra amount.
    The extra amount which I have paid is only for the additional things/ modifications
    I have asked. He has committed to do puja for free of cast and have not charge me for that.

    There was communication GAP here. I thought all the other things also he do for free of cost, but later come to know that other builders are also charging for the extra work My cousin paid 50000 Rs for exra work being done in his flat – Tata Sher wood.

    I have settled the amount what we have agreed upon + Service charge.
    After the registration, i have paid the aggreed amount only even though the flat rate raised by 20%.
    Iam not sure about other Lorven constructions but definitely not from our apartment.

    7)
    He says “I never promised you Electric fittings (Switches,Boards), lift,flat
    doors,windows,bathroom pipes etc” (Initially you see the plan brochure and
    think that they are obvious from any builder, but there is a disclaimer
    written behind the brochure :”This brochure is purely conceptual and not a
    legal offering.the developers reserves the right to add/alter/delete any of
    the specification mentioned here”. He say that he removed all the above
    componentes from the plan)

    * I have paid for extra electrical fittings but not for entire electrical work.

    * They have provided all the other facilities as promised like

    Lift
    Intercom
    Power back-up

    Finally I can say, they will definitely finish the work on the promised date.
    If you have a clear agreement with the target date to complete then it would not be an issue.

    There is no point in saying that builder will escape because he staying the PENT house
    of our apartment and his family also living with him. His children got school admission in bang lore.

    Reply to the hidden brainless fellow’s allegations.

    An hidden Idiot has been sending false messages, misleading the public with an ulterior motive to tarnish our company’s image in the market. And Our company has initiated criminal action against that person and the cops are investing the matter to find him.

    He has made all false allegations of about 70%, 90% etc., and alleges that the Builder runs away from the project and has further alleged that the Builder has changed brand name – Factually we are successfully carrying on the construction activities in the name and style of Srilorven Estates at Hyderabad and has earned huge reputation there and has been continuing at Hyderabad even as on date, in the same name and has got several ongoing projects there.

    We have moved to Bangalore during 2003-04 and completed a big project known as “SRILORVEN HOMES” at Kaggadasapura and has got lots of satisfied customers in the said project – interestingly the Builder is residing in the pent house of the same Building goes to show that some vested interest are trying to tarnish the image of our company by circulating false information to the public.

    We have completed only one project i.e., the aforesaid SRILORVEN HOMES till now and a small project on the Airport Road is nearing completion and has quite recently has commenced a small project at Krishnaiahnapalya – and all the customers, flat owners in the completed project has expressed their absolute satisfaction about the quality of flats and service rendered by the Builder – the phone numbers of all the flat owners are given below – the public can confirm with them about the quality of flats, attitude of the Builder – and the satisfaction of our Real Customers who have dealt with us and purchased flats from us would show that there is no water in the allegations made by the hidden idiot, who has been doing the same only to tarnish our image and reputation in the market – it could be a handwork of our rivals, who could not see our progress within a short span of time. Be that as it may, general public are hereby requested not to believe the said false allegations and requested to know the real picture by personally visiting our completed project and talking to all the flat owners in our project – the phone numbers of all the flat owners are mentioned herein below – talk to them and know about our quality of workmanship and service rendered by us.

    It is known that all the flat purchasers would avail housing loan for purchasing flat and it is also well known that the Banker would not release entire loan without completion of the project, moreover the existing satisfied customers’ expression would speak about our quality and further the dwelling of the Builder Malla Reddy in the same project would speak about the falsehood of running away after collection money – 90% work etc.,. – the phone numbers of the Builder has remained the same from the beginning shows about the falsehood of change in phone number. We have also initiated criminal action against the person, who has created the fiction to tarnish our image and reputation.

    Further, if anybody proves that we have taken Rs.2,00,000/- (Rupees Two Lakhs) from the flat owners or if the real flat owners comes forward with such contention, we categorically undertakes to pay a sum of Rs.20,00,000/- to each such flat owners.

    The said message further alleges that the flat owners were slapped, had that been true – the flat owners are not foolish to sit quite without filing any criminal case against the builder. However the said clandestine person has made all false allegations to tarnish our firms image. There is flat owners’ association – had the allegation been true atleast the said association would have initiated action for the same. The perpetrator of the allegation has remained underground and has been making and circulating the information stealthily only with an ulterior motive of tarnishing our image and reputation.

  7. Raghunandan Ratnaparkhi Says:

    Dear all,

    The menioned information about SRI LORVEN Builders is not true.I have purchased a flat in their 1′st scheme in Bangalore, which is SRI LORVEN HOMES. I was one of the first few customers who booked at SRI LORVEN. I had quite a good experience with builder. He has done all the things which was told. So also I got many modifications done in my flat which was supported by builder.

    So also he supported us during registration time & got it done on time,else we would have ended up paying few thousands more.

    There are lot many things which has been made up by someone & has been put up just to malign builders image. But I don’t find any depth in these allegations.Infact when I saw these allegations, I was quite surprised, but my reaction was cool as I knew that this information is fake.

    About rates, It was as per market rates in CMC Area. So also builder never charged anything extra than the quoted price. I just paid few thousand more for extra modifications i got done at my flat.

    About his treatment to his customers, it was quite cool. I always had good experience with builder.

    changing names, mobile SIM are just fake stories made up….I still have same nos of builders, their supervisors & engineers.

    He is staying in pent house of our apratment only & can be contacted any time.

    I hope all you guys will look into customer feedback & will not belive in such spam mails.One should verify both the sides of coin before making any opnion on such spams.

    If you need any further information,You can write me on my mail id or can call me on my Mobile. Its given in Mr.Malla Reddy’s Reply to this mail.

    Thanks & Regards

  10. Well wisher Says:

    I am extremly dissatisfied with the way they have handed over the flat.They are looting money from innocent buyers. I bought a house and I do not encourage anyone to buy these flats that are build recklessly.

    The kind of pain and loss it has caused me is immense please dont land in the same trouble and what ever allegation are made on these builder are to some extent very true which I have experienced.

    1.During the process you end up paying thousands of rupees as bribe dont know to whose pocket it goes.
    2.once handed over you will see hundred of problems with houses which is newly built cracks,lekages,seepages,broken latches unpainted etc and workers as well the builder are absconding when u call the number does not exist or either the cell is switches off ass holes!
    3.There prices are higher and houses are not worth it.Trust me.These builders should be hanged in public.

  11. Well wisher Says:

    there is another seller of houses C.G Prakash resident of kaggadasapura.This fellow lends the builders to (srinivas reddy and shekar reddy)the land inturn builders owe him few falts as part of joint development agreement.

    Please dont buy from this guys either or lorven builders. I bought from this person and the houses have plenty of problems. I have not been able to rent it out because of obvious resons.
    1.Painting of walls not done properly.
    2.cracks and seepages are usual sights in these newly constucted flats.
    3.parapet finishing is not done properly.
    4.floor and bathroom tiles are not properly cemented as result come out when you step on it.
    5.you will see broken tiles here and there, cheap electrical and bathroom fittings for the huge amount you pay them.
    6.cheap window latches the moment you want to latch and pull ..it is broken.
    7.Main door looks like a 20 year old home.
    8.open ended pipes, cemented patches here and there…so and so on on on

    Some banks like ICICI have stopped lending loans to these builder after they realsied all this.The whole appartment form outside looks like a class builder building ..you step into it ..you bet ..you will see the truth.

    These apartment when handed over to you .. you have to spend lakhs of rupees to get them in good shape on painting, plumbing, fittings etc etc.

    No doubt the flats of these apartments looks like one concrete pile as a whole.

    Last word these biulders C.G.Praksh and Shekar reddy definelty are not in bussines with good intentions

    1. script or story writing for movies
    2. journalism on rumors and gossips
    Or
    He can even consider starting his own construction business with those above mentioned tricks.

    Coming back to the issue…..

    All I can say is it’s a FALTOO story, which might have come from a personal grudge.And if u notice carefully, the article is clearly oriented towards character assassination of the people who runs the company.
    Ok guys I am done. I will leave the rest to your logical thinking.

  15. domkar Says:

    I bought flat in Sri Lorven Castle in Oct 2005, and we know them from last 1 yrs, and we dont find any person like Mallaya Reddy or Narasimha Reddy in Sri Lorven Builders. The Mail which circulated over net is no link with Sri Lorven Builder, Whatever it explained in that mails is FALSE. They have completed their work very nicely, and they never asked for the extra money, they have provided all the aminities which they promised. The quality of work done is excellent, The Owner of Sri Lorven Castle Builder name is Shekar Reddy and there is no link with Mallaya reddy or narsimha reddy.

  16. S Sharma Says:

    but, yes there several builders for example M/s Salvia Developers Pvt ltd., whose project is located in AECS layout (Off Hosur Road, entry opp to Dr Agarwal Hospital, after the bugur signal) who is taken the customers for a ride since 2005. This builder named Somasekhar is from again from Andhra preadesh, Ananthapur who came to bangalore around 3 yrs ago and started as a builder. He started the project before 2.5 years and agreement was made with the customers to handover the flats after 10 months from the date of agreement. The apartment has 42-45 flats. The construction is still not complete. Out of 42-45 flats, after getting frustrated from the builder, 3 families moved in to their incomplete flats. I am seeing atleast few customers of Sri Lorven replying that they are happy. But with Salvia Developers, there is not even a single customer happy and there is no abusive word leftover to say on this builder. The customers so much frustrated. When the flat owners go to speak to him, he tries to deal with each customer separately. To few of the customers who cannot dare to go to Court/consumer court after paying hefty money for their dream flat, the builder of Salvia Developer has threatened saying ‘get lost, I am not giving the flat, go and do whatever you can do’. Most of the customers are still paying the emi since 2 years..for their incomplete flat..

    Be cautious of this developer (M/s SALVIA DEVELOPERS PVT LTD.) . If you do, at your own risk..

    Swamigale ..I have lived in hyderabad for about 5 years .I know a great deal about these andhra developers .Please be aware .
    Even if someone is handed out apartments ..it will be of very poor construction .
    Let me tell you about the way business works ..
    1. First it was granite business ..all andhra black money got into it and spoiled
    2.Then there was Prawn/Shrimp farming adhu haaLu maadidhru
    3.Then there was Road construction ..they went as far as Gujrath and Rajasthan rotating their black money
    4. Then came y2K and they collected huge sums of money to send everyone to US .Now on every street in US you can find ‘AMERICA VIA AMEERPET’ ..Police constables, Bank managers,Clerks,Teachers all in the guise of software professionals are in US . There are lots of them who got duped by lakhs .
    5.now they want to encash the buidling industry in bangalore after spoiling hyderabad market .They just want to spoil everything by shortcut methods of making money and making black money/dowry money WHITE.

    Whoever wants to transact with AP developers – Gob Bless them . these guys build a Pent home, live there for 2 years then they will sell them and move on. I really pity those living in 15 / 20 Apt blocks. Imagine few years down the line , if the elevator goes down , 20 people together will have no money to Maintain it.

    As a protest, I have stopped eating out in AP restaurents. Yes, I agree that these guys are Poor in quality and hopelessly blind towards environment. Our people are also to be blamed , they buy an APt – they dont check where the water is sourced from , what happens to the Sewage waste. It is Good that Mysore has a foum where they were vocal about the sewage. Every APt should have their own Sewage Treatment Plant. I certain to be attending the meeting with Mysore autirities to impress upon the need for these APT builders to obtain a permission only after providing Sewage tretment plant.

    Kaggadasapura is a story by itself – people there and who ever constructed Apt should be thrown into shark infested waters! Really – these guys send out the Sewage onto the Lake.

    If all said about the Lorven builders are true, everybody should stop buying flats from them. And it is the duty of the unsatisfied customers to spread such valuable information so that no other customer would fall in their trap. All Efforts should be made to make such builders suffer. I request all the unsatisfied customers to come forward and voice their concern.

    I am just sharing my experience with Oceanus Dwelling Developers. I booked my flat with them in one of their projects (Oceanus Ebony) in September 2004. At that time their marketing guy (Mr Polson – in my opinion he is a typical marketing guy who will make you book an apartment making false verbal promises and once you have booked, he will even fail to recognize you), said that the BDA approvals are due by end of October and the apartments would be ready by December 2005. I booked the apartment and they started moving the deadlines month by month. Eventually, the apartments got completed by January 2007 only. Thru out this period whenever I talked to them about the delay, they would very rudely tell me that I can take my money back (at the booking rate of Sep 2004) if I want. The rates had gone up by more than 30% by the time the construction actually started and there was no point in taking my money back. So I was just stuck with them. Anyhow the apartments got ready by 2007 January only. The construction quality was just about OK with the finishing not at all professional or up to the mark. There were quite a few things that were wrong in my flat. I gave them a list of the things that need to be corrected more than two months back. No action has been taken by them yet and whenever I call them, they say it will be done very soon.

    In middle of all this, they took Rs 12500 extra for registration citing it as bribe money. If you are paying 12500 as bribe money, you expect your work done relatively easily and timely. There is one Mr Venugopal with Oceanus, who made us stand in a queue from 9:30 in the morning till 5:30 in the evening for registration. Moreover, we did all the work at the registration office and this guy just kept standing in a corner. Other builders had their people come for registration and they got their registrations done in a couple of hours max.

    Then during possession, they asked for a check of 2000 for swimming pool. The swimming pool is not ready yet and so I told them that give me the possession certificate now so that I can shift and then when the swimming pool is ready, I will give the 2000 check. This Mr Venugopal became very rude during the conversation and went on to the extent of saying that he does not trust me.

    I am still struggling with Oceanus dwellings to get my apartment ready for shifting and I am not sure how long I will have to fight with them. There are quite a few people (whom I had met on the registration day) who have booked with Oceanus and every one had more or less the same story to share. They also were very disappointed and felt cheated. They also gave the feedback that if you raise any concern with Oceanus, they will very rudely ask you to take your money back. People are stuck as they will return the money only at the booking rate and the rates have increased so much since booking.

    Hi All,
    I am not a builder nor going to buy a house shortly. I went through this blog and the comments also. For and against. I really don’t know if only a handful are facing a problem coz I find many happy customers.
    But,All I want to point out is the way Mr Reddy has responed ::

    “Reply to the hidden brainless fellow’s allegations.
    An hidden Idiot has been sending false messages”

    I mean com’on Mr Reddy, you are a builder and I believe you should not be much worried about someone writing something about your projects in some blog.Its powerful,agreed but cannot be categorized as hot news. If you feel that your profits have declined, then you should go for aggressive advertising through media. I feel this would suit you rather than calling some unknown person a HIDDEN IDIOT or similar giving SEVEN DAY ultimatum and playing blogging blogging…

    Hi,
    I have purchased a flat with Kristal Group in Bangalore near ITP, Whitefield, They charged me 33Lakhs for it total, but the area is largely undeveloped, there is no tarred road to that place, It is caleld Kristal Citrine, I only hope that there will be some activity by the time i start staying there, But my question to the knowledgable readers is,Is it really worth it ?, (i.e.33Lakhs) Could i have got a better dwelling for the same place anywhere else closer to the city.

  38. prashanth Says:

    Jith,

    We are also planning to book apartment at Sowparnika Skanda near by to Kristal Citrine it is again of 34 Lakhs. We saw so many places where roads are not tarred and still rate is too high.
    eg. On bannerghatta road in BTM 6th stage also roads aer not tarred and that area is not developed so far but rate is going as 2250/sqft.
    So I personally believe the deal what we have got is fine.

    So pls guide me should i buy flat or not??

  43. prashanth Says:

    Hi an,

    Yes we saw the sire for Sowparnika Thulasi but what I felt is location of plot is not that good from ligtht and ventilition point. Once any project comes to left side of the property there won’t be sufficient light.

    Builder is good and have seen other projects and as of now we have not faced any issue.

Can any one throw information on the above subject?

  54. Santhosh Says:

    To everyone who is passionate about buying a house in Bangalore, Please be very careful when you deal with SGR Builders. They are very nice to speak to, they can talk you into booking a flat which you might not be able to afford. But Beware, do not trust any word they say, they do not keep their word. I have been cheated twise on the same property, GR Lavender In Bannerghatta Road, once by Orange Properties who promised things which were not really part of the flats. Then the GR guys very nicely spoke to me when i wanted to cancel, and then cheated me again when i realy wanted to cancel because i was pushed into a flat which i could not afford. They had promised that i would not have to pay any charges upon cancellation until i sign the agreement, but did not keep their word and are charging me 25% of the 2 Lakhs i have paid as Booking amount. Before booking, they say ‘ i do not need your money, we will return it fully when u want to cancel’. When we want to cancel, they say 25% charges is Company Policy.

    Please be careful if you are dealing with SGR Builders, they do not keep their promise, so we do not know at what point of time, what promise they are going to break.

    I am still fighting for the full Refund, wont stop until i recover it fully, i am just a normal person who cant afford to give away 50,000 for some rich man’s greed.

    Good Luck all….

  60. Aggreived Says:

    Do not buy any property from DSR Constructions: These folks are plain cheats and unprofessional operators who do not give even the basics to a customer. Do not expect them to deliver the property in time, do not expect them to deliver smooth walls even and what least you can expect…do not expect to be given an car parking agreement which they honour. These guys have alloted car parking to two apartment owners ridiculing all laws…..

    They cheat on the carpet area also promising in writing to deliver > 80% and then finally when u measure it the area would come to 70-72% for bare bones apartment complex (no swimming pool etc). These crooks should be taken to courts for that……see their properties as DSR Cresent, DSR Elite, DSR Windsor to get a first hand experience.

    Dear Vijay: Buy this property at your own risk with a constant headache. I had brought the flat in 2005 and till date they havent professionally given me a peaceful day. My car parking alloted to me has also been alloted to another apartment owner…so you can guage what legal agreements mean to these folks……Am planning my next flat and i swear am not going to deal with these B grade developers who do not stand by their words or even legal agreements.

  63. Scared Says:

    Hi ,
    Can some one tell me abt the DSR developers I am planning to buy a house at DSR Emerald, near bellandur outer ring road.
    Has any one any bad experiences with them if so why?
    Also let me know if there was some good experiences ..

  64. Aggreived Says:

    Scared,my comments on DSR constructions are very clear. Would you want to:
    a) Trust your hard earned money to a developer who does not even honor legal stamp papered agreements?
    b) Deal with unprofessional folks who would give false promises and then a shabby apartment? FYI my flat just after 2 years has numerous cracks and ants come out of that. This is not on external walls where due to temperature fluctuations you can assume it would crack but on internal walls.
    c) These guys would make you run for each and every step…weather it is for possesion of the flat, transfer of electricity, allotment of car parking… do you want to just be running around to a third grade builder or invest your time in more meaningful activities?

    d) Even after they give you a flat they ensure that their relatives etc also stay in the complex and they do all sorts of issues for the residents…do you want to take this nonsense on a continous basis.

    I have burnt my hands with these crooks and swear never to deal with these unprofessional asses again..rather i would deal with top notch builders who atleast have everything in black and white.

  69. Dr. Sree Reddy Says:

    Hello
    I think you guys who are buying flats from private builders shoudl take sufficient precautions.

    1. Buying a flat/apartment is a new thing for us as we are used to applying to BDA and get a site allottted and it was guranteed.

    2. There should be some rules and all the flats/ apartments/ private villas should have some approval authority like BDA.

    3. That authority should make the list of approved apartments/villas public.

    4. Many private plots are being sold near Devanahalli airport but the government has approved only TWO projects so far. So says a government release.

    5. Rules should change. Apartment builders should be able to sell the apartments only afte 100 % completion.

  70. Dr. Sree Reddy Says:

    Best, instead of buying flats from builders, why dont you people form a society, identify lands, and buy land and give the construction to some contractors. That way it will be safe: quality as well as your money.

    Many people in Delhi/Bombay do this way.

  71. anitha Says:

    Hi:

    I am really proud to, i tell abt M\s.Sowparnika projects, i have purchased an apt at sowparnika skanda , its construction is really good, the rooms are spacious. All the papers are legally correct. No deviations. So i am really satisfied in taking the apt with sowparnika projects. Builder is trust worth.

  72. ajith verma Says:

    iam pretty much happy to say lorven constructions management had handed over my flat with 90% when i registerd my flat , and within 1 month flat was completely ready for occupation.

    iam not so sure why only 2 to 3 people are behind this buliders ,and if they are not satisfied and if so called bulders slapped some of the occupants why this people left over as dumbshed ,this people are quite educated and work in good companies they know how to approach police and can also knock the doors of law.

    what i think about this people is they are foolish ,

  73. Ravi Says:

    I request everybody not to go for MS builder, the owner is MS Babu, he is a real cheater, and the other man in the same gruup is Ramesh , they never keep thir commitments in all the aspects and the quality of the apartment is very poor, and they never hand over the apratment to the association, example is one of their apartments in GM palaya, they have not finished the basic facilities what they committed and collected the money even after one year , lifts , water, and other common facilities are not yet made.
    If you go and ask them they use to threaten,

Orange holidays said 3 days before schedule date of departure that they cant get confirmations on air ticket. Finally we demanded a full refund for which Orange holidays agreed. They have given us a cheque yesterday for the full amount of Rs 50,000 which has bounced. You can’t get anyone on the phone, they are always evasive. They only come out with full page advertisements to lure innocent people. This is to advise all fellow Indians and travelers not to trust these cheats.

    I came to know about the new DLF project @ 2000 prices for 2bhk..Attracted by it i enquired with them,
    1)Most of the apartments carry a additional 50 psqft for orientation & another 50 psqft for greenery..
    2)Then I spoke to one of my colleague who has booked a apartment there @ a earlier price of 2775..Now they want to him sign a new agreement and have a new apartment..As the current design is totally different from the previous design ,he was not interested in going ahead and asked for money back,but he was told that his money will not be paid back and was told that the builder has the right to change the design anytime he wants..
    Previously there were only G+4 floors now its G+18 floors. So the number of apartments in the same area has increased manifold..and thats why the prices have been reduced..you can very well search the net/dlf site for the earlier site plan.
    As such you can never be sure if the current design is the one they will go with..If tommorow they change the plan and you want to come out of it ,you cant..you can very well check with them what they are doing with people who have already booked and are not happy with the changed plan,are they returning their money ..If they yes i can give references of my friends for whom they havent done so..
    My friend is now worried whether they have actually got the land in dlf name..He was collected 4L on october 2008 saying bda cleareance will come in 3 months,but now they are saying it will take another 6 months..My friend is planning to take it legally with dlf to get his money back.
    The manager in dlf has said it seems as per the agreement they have full rights to change the plan @ any date and even if the project is scrapped for any unforseen circumstances ,the customer has no say on it..(check wat happened with sjr big builder)
    Also they say, it will take min 2.5 to 3 years to complete,god knows when..you might be aware how much Prestige Shantiniketan(big builder) is delayed and the residents are not even paid the compensation for delay even though its mentioned in the agreement..

    So beware before proceeding…

    I have been staying in Salvia Residency for more than a year.

    Its location is one of the best in terms of proximity to Electronic City & Sarjapura Road / Marathalli. The apartments are spacious and airy. The surroundings are clean and peaceful. In all a good place for a peace of mind away from noisy traffic of Bangalore and yet close to Koramangla, HSR, BTM etc.

    Also the builder is friendly & cooperative. If you want to have a look at the model flat, please visit and see for yourself. Thanks.

  107. Nagesh Says:

    Sri Lorven, they are indeed a fraud and Rowdies. All those other people who wrote in their favour are their chamchas, who get a drink everyday.
    Forget Malla Reddy who is writing in his favour under different names.

    When buying a property in Bangalore Do Not buy from Reddy’s, check anywhere in Bangalore since years, they all have cheated and made money. Where do they get the money to build those huge houses – by cheating.
    They will not hesitate to sell a plat to 10 people, or hike up their price after getting initial major amounts.

    What has been written is less, a bunch of thugs stay away.
    You have 5 Reddy’s in the current BJP govt. having done Dacoity, Looting, Rape, Cheating. Wait until this govt. goes away to pursue proper action.

    Reddy’s will not hesitate to sell a plot to 10 people or chnge the price after taking money and before registration. Go to the courts most cheating cases are about Reddy’s , brothers cheating each other, son against father or mother or vice versa.

    Do Not buy from these people Reddy’s, they have no conscience and ARE ROWDIES, how much ever they study, the filth always comes out. We eally suffered until we solved from one os thes cheap low life characters from the gutters who call themselves builders, out to Cheat, Cheat and Cheat.

  108. Owner Says:

    Hi,

    I would like to give my feedback on builder Reddy Structures (Mahaveer), JP Nagar.

    Please don’t buy any property from this builder for the following reasons.

    1. Not at all professional guys to deal with, will be very polite till you book the flat and maake all kind of commitments but once done they will work in their own way.
    2. Construction quality is very poor and the finishing and touch up work is below average. Cracks will start appearing in the flats within 1 year.
    3. There will be lot of hidden charges and some times they won’t provide the basci facility even after paying the money for it. (eg sewage connection, cauvery water ).

    I personally didn’t had goood exp. after I bought the flat so suggest not to but from them.

    Thanks,

    I am living in Himagiri Meadows for last few years. We have simillar experience . The builder PC Reddy has collected money for life time maintenac from owners. He stopped maintaini and refused to return the money collected.
    There were few houses illegaly constructed that was demiloshed by BBMP recently. He collected huge amount from buyers promising generator back up. He insalled a refurbished low capacity generator. He has given so many promises but nothing fullfilled.

    So beware of this builder; He is a genuine cheat

  154. Unitech Says:

    Unitech have a flat at Yelahanka called Prestige.
    The guys have completed leaky apartments and say since it is in the middle of 6-7 floors we cannot fix it; with great pride and prestige.

    Can we take it to court with judge like Dinakraran?
    Obviously No.
    Consumer forums gives relief to very handful cases. If they had concern then they would have setup a forum with every land grabber. All gimmicks.

    Hi,
    Do not buy from Kristal.
    I am an unfortunate buyer who paid my hard earned money. They promised to deliver the project in 2008 June, now it is 2010 Jan, but still only 60% is completed. This project is in Cochin. It might take another one year if every thing goes well, for completing the project. Read the docs, before you sign any thing….and be ready to loose ur time and money…I am continuing 3 years of struggle still with this builder. It is not professionally managed. It is managed by Frieds and Relatives of Mr. Namboothiri who are not the competent people in this field. It is getting run like a Chinese restaurant with all relatives working for same cause…What a mistake…If u are ready to loose and wait for another 5 years..buy the flat from them.

    =======================================================

    If you are planning to buy any flat in Adarsh Retreat Tower-3, Tower-4 onward, be careful, they will not complete and deliver before 2015. Yes …They are the worst builder in Bangalore.

    They did booking for Tower-2 in 2004/2005 – took 5 years and still the project is not delivered. The keep extending the deadlines every month.

    Very incapable builder to handle large project.

    They only focus on Viila’s customer …no respect and time for Apartment owners.

    If you dont believe on this, advise you to speak to any existing owner there and verify.

  171. Neeraj Says:

    Skandesh Marketing – headed by somebody of name Venkatraman is a big cheat. Only two words if you see him marketing a project – STEER CLEAR. His very presence should be an indication that there is something massively amiss with the project, for builders who are extremely incompetent, extremely unprofessional and extremely untrustworthy would hire him. I am a buyer of the the Balaji pristine apartment (Whitefield road, near the Whitefield police station) and I am talking from my own experience.

  172. Kristalvictim Says:

    Please never ever go with Kristal builder, you will loose your hard earned money. They are in very big financial crisis nothing is happening in any or there project. I book a villa in kristal aquamarine (hosur road, bangalore) in 2008 and the never ending construction is still continuing (moving like snail). No proper management, design or quality. if you spend 40lakhs u will get <10 lakhs worth flat/villa like structure (u dont even call it as flat/villa).

  173. atul Says:

    I am scared with the post. I am a poor man and do not want to meet this misery. I can not bear that. EMI & existing rent is already a heavy load but if such thing is happened with any man then I am sure God will intervene. Thanks for the helpful post. God bless you and give you the strength to overcome with the losses.

    Newbuyer:
    I have bought an apartment in GR Lavender. Definitely there has been a delay in the delivery…they promised me March 2010 but its already June and there is still no sign of delivery.
    There is a notification from BDA on the site for developing a layout, the builders say its because BDA want money, but then we only can wait and watch what happens.
    Construction is going on, at slow speed.
    One word of caution is that you should be extra careful with these guys, never believe everything they say. Their promises are easily forgotten by them and once you are caught they take you for a ride. But almost every builder does that…so no reason to expect these guys to be any different. They are extremely money minded and will lie through their teeth to get as much money from you as possible…they even lie in the name of god. Good Luck.

  178. Balaji Pristine customer Says:

    Balaji Pristine from the Balaji developers (Managed by the trio Yogandhar,Amrinder and Krishna Reddy) was promised on Dec 09 but as of today (June 10) it is nowhere near completion. The luxury amentites like pool clubhouse gym etc had no approval (which they never told us) and are going to be scrapped now. So the builder has pocketed all the premium he charged by promising those. Materials are as poor as ever. Doors are made of 4th grade wood which has developed cracks while installation only. In flooring, many broken tiles are laid. Showed 4 way door frames in model flat but only providing 3 way. Materials sourced from very cheap providers. And they charge 25k for allowing you to register, which costs hardly 10k if you do it on your own. This way they made nearly 20 lac (considering 132 flats). Even they can’t provide covered carpark for all. They have started 3-4 apartments in the whitefield-kadugodi area. BEWARE!

    Hi!!!

    This to the people who are going buy properties marketed by Skandesh Marketting Services. Skandesh is marketting now Aakruti amity near Electronic city. Skandesh is headed by Mr. Venkatraman. Do not buy any properties through Skandesh because of following points.
    1. Advertised amneties are never approved.
    2. Skandesh washes his hands when builder delays the project
    3. While taking money from buyers, skandesh follows rules and agreement. And while delivering venkat passes responsibilty to others.
    4. Skandesh never takes responsibilty once agreement is made and you paid money.
    5. Skandesh is only interested in making money for themeslf and builders.

    If any one wants to know further details of Skandesh, please contact residents of Balaji Pristine @ whitefield.

    All those who are looking for flats @ bangalore pls be careful in dealing with DS Max properties as the assurances they give while selling will not be kept.They usually are only mktg agents for certaain unknown developers who cannot sell the properties on their own.Once the properyies are bought they will just ditch yu and the developer will take yu for a ride by not abiding to the amenities that are supposed to be provided.Also pls check all the interior works like walls, plumbing,tiles etc they are usually of low quality.Do not fall for the talks of their sales rep who are trained to con people just to get their flats sold.All those ads yu see from newspaers are only eyewashes.I bought one from them a yr back and still regretting it.Make sure all documents like Khata,OC,and all amenities mentioned arein place otherwise yu will have sleepless nights.BEWARE OF PROPERTIES SOLD THRU DS MAX

  204. anand Says:

    Be careful of Pavani Builders, they do not finish their projects on time and do a shabby job . They make you run around for every paper work. Every flat has so much unfinished work ,and they expect the buyer to run behind them even after full payment is made. They are just small time builder from Nellore operating in blore. Their website sucks too

    it is better to pay a little more and go for a reputed builder and check the quality of construction before buying .

    Don`t even think of buying a flat in Kristal Dolomite at Kanakpura. The project is pending since 2006 & It will not be ready…
    Last year ( April 10) I have visited their site as I was looking to buy a flat @ Kristal Dolomite. They said it will be compleated by Sept 10. I believe still it` in the same condition of last yr. If u book a flat with them u have to waite for another 5 yrs. to get ur flat. because constructions is stopped. More or less every Bangalorian is aware of Kristal group, so don`t fall in their sales persons promiss.

    Best of luck…

    dear nisha
    Last year i had a look at the kristal dolomite i.e. near Kanakpura road. i found the location and price very reasonable and now that area is promoted as next jaynagar.

    The concern is the work is going very slow and while browsing i came across few adverse remark regarding this one. You need to check and get clear about this. Is it due to any legal issue, i am not sure.
    Other issue there is 100 ft road just front of the flat. This road connects to Anjanpura BDA layout. I feel once layout is fully developed, this road will be very crowded. Just look at this angle
    regards

    according my friend,
    ETA GARDENS on Magadi rd is a value property in this market, probably around 3900- 4000/sq ft which is one of the low priced complexes in this market.
    They made them wait for two years to handover but now its ready looks good.
    Right next to majestic railway stations, and namma metro,
    construction looks good,
    has so many more amenities, they have two or three pools ( one exclusive indoor pool for ladies and children) big tennis and basket all court etc
    (this is my opinion, you make an independent decision)

    Never-ever buy any properties from Balaji developers and Skandesh Marketing, these are the BIG cheaters, they are coming up with new project in Hopefarm, never-ever buy even if prices are cheap.

    Quiality of product, work, service is worst …

    Materials sourced from very cheap providers. And they charge 25k for allowing you to register, which costs hardly 10k if you do it on your own. This way they made nearly 20 lac (considering 132 flats). Even they can’t provide covered carpark for all. They have started 3-4 apartments in the whitefield-kadugodi area. BEWARE!

    You need to be very sure and clever to deal with G R Lavendar. You will never know till the end what you will get. Be prepared for surprizes. They take their own time to address any requests/issues or queries. You can get any answer again a surprise. You need to have enough time to build your own independent house; then you could get one good one here too. They might not cheat you, but you should be lucky to get what you deserve. All the best

    Some Facts:
    New Apartment – 60×40 sqft BDA site, 6 apartments 1000 sqft each, price per apartment 60lakhs
    10+ yrs old Apartment – 60×40 sqft BDA site, 6 apartments 1000 sqft each, price per apartment 36lakhs

    The above two apartments were just 300mts apart in south bangalore.My friend (unlike me, he missed,
    the 2002 realestate bus) did the right thing, bought 36 lakhs apartment, spent 4 lakhs on
    complete rennovation…

    I think 2002 was the right time for buying new apartments…i think 2011 is the right time for
    buying re sale apartments … more over you don’t have to face the builder related issues as
    mentioned here.

    Most apartment now for resale were bought by oweners pre boom period…have seen a huge
    appreciation…are easy to negotiate …

  239. Abhinav Says:

    I want to buy a 2BHK apt between Marathalli to Bellandur/Sarjapur junction. Pls suggest some good builder name and project with good quality work, committment & timely delivery.
