How to file a complaint in APRERA (Andhra Pradesh)?

Complaint in APRERA

The Andhra Pradesh Real Estate Regulatory Authority (APRERA) was set up under the RERA Act, 2016. The state government was notified of the Andhra Pradesh Real Estate (Regulation and Development) Rules in 2017. The Real Estate Regulatory Authority (APRERA) will provide the platform for Registration of the Real Estate Projects with Promoter details and the Real Estate Agents. Apart from this, one can also file a complaint in APRERA.

Important features of APRERA Act

  • The APRERA acts as the government body which can be approached by a homebuyer for the purpose of grievance redressal
  • This authoritative body governs and controls real estate transactions, whether it’s residential or commercial.
  • The law has made this mandatory for all the buyers and developers to publish all information related to the real estate project on an official APRERA portal. This includes layout plan, project plan, approval certificates, land title status, schedule for completion, development plan, etc.
  • If the developer delays the delivery of a project, the developer will be liable to compensate the customer.
