If you want a home buyer’s manual, there isn't any. But surely there are a few things you need to look into before buying any home:

1. The sale deed: the essential legal document that contains evidence of the sale and the transfer of the property from the builder to the individual. After a few years, the individual may want to sell the home, then this document becomes essential. It is executed before the sale agreement and after the compliance with the terms and conditions detailed in the sale agreement as agreed by the individuals concerned.

2. The Mother deed: this is an important document that traces the ownership of the property. This is required by the bank when the buyer avials a loan against the property. Anybody can approach the local authority to create this document.

3. The sale and purchase agreement: contains a list of terms and conditions agreed by both buyer and the seller; like the negotiation of the flat price. This will contain the agreed-upon amount of the flat by the buyer and the seller.

This document avails utilities like water supply, electricity supply, and the drainage system.

7. The Khata Certifiucate: Khata is a revenue document that contains details of property likle size, locxation, area, etc, to pay property taxes. It is a form of identification and is required to take a home loan. It is a part of the home buying process and is needed to apply for electricity and water supply.
