What is Occupancy Certificate?

With respect to Bangalore jurisdiction, the Occupancy Certificate (OC) is a document issued by a statutory authority, such as Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) and Bangalore Development Authority (BDA) and it gives the applicant or the builder permission to “occupy” the property. It is required for residential projects which have more than five apartments or flats and commercial buildings also have to obtain it before they occupy. OC is not issued for individual flats either it is issued for an entire building, or a part thereof.

It is illegal for the builder to hand over the flats to the buyers without receiving the OC. It is illegal for the flats to be occupied / rented without the OC.

  • When a project fails to get OC, it means that the building is not as per the sanctioned plan, and the builder has deviated the actual plans with illegal unsanctioned floors, walls, or any other extensions.
  • It also states that the building is not safe to inhabit because of quality of construction, safety of stairs or lifts, electrical safety, fire safety, airline safety, etc. Because the building might have failed to obtain the clearance from the respective departments.
  • The building is not capable of fulfilling its mandatory role in managing its waste management, sewage treatment, water management.
  • The project has exceeded its limit of 5% deviation, so it will be an issue in future.
  • The builder might have failed to obtain the necessary documents related to the project; it can be legal documents, or any other NOC’s from the departments.

Importance of Occupancy Certificate

  • Occupancy certificate (OC) is needed by a purchaser when he/she is legally moving into a flat. Occupying a flat without OC is treated as illegal & owner can be forced to evict the flat in certain cases.
  • Occupancy certificate is not required for the registration of the flat, but it is required when the buyer applies for Khata certificate.
  • Khata Certificate which is linked with the OC plays an important role during resale of the flat or apartment.
  • There are chances of discontinuing the civic facilities like electricity & water to the flats that haven’t obtained the OC.
  • Banks ask for the OC when someone planning to buy a resell flat, so, your buyer can ask you for an OC to make a deal.

In simple words buying a flat with Occupancy certificate (OC) ensures you are free from all the misfortunes or unfortunate’s in your future.
