REA India-owned online real estate company Housing.com has tied up with online legal assistance startups to offer legal advice and assistance to homebuyers.
Consumer surveys have shown that this is a major pain point for consumers and this offering will go a long way in addressing that need, the company said.
“Besides requiring a substantial financial outlay, property purchases could also involve legal complexities that need to be handled with the help of an expert. This can be extremely overwhelming for homebuyers, who may not be completely familiar with the multiple legal and financial procedures involved in property purchases,” said Dhruv Agarwala, Group CEO, Housing.com.
The decision to launch our new service has been made by the company to address yet another task a homebuyer has to undertake while buying a home in a very affordable way,” said Agarwala.
The company will provide the legal services to its clients in a large number of cities across the country.
Using the services offered by the Housing Edge platform, homebuyers would not only get all their legal queries answered but also get assistance to draft and execute property-related documents like sale deed and agreement for sale. The company will also offer guidance to buyers / investors with regard to property title and its registration.
These services would also be available to customers, who are using services PropTiger.com or Makaan.com, the other two brands that REA India owns.
“It has been our constant endeavour to make the home-buying journey hassle free for our customers. With that as the guiding principle, we have brought on board our new partners who will help our customers to handle any legal requirements they may have through their journey,” said Sangeet Aggarwal, Head of Product & Design, Housing.com.
All a user has to do to avail of these services is to simply drop a request on any of our platforms. Our partners will immediately connect with users and help them find all the answers they need,” said Aggarwal.
