Stamp Duty is supposed to be paid every time there is a transfer of ownership. It is calculated on the total value of your property. The amount to be paid varies from city to city.
You must be at least 21 years of age for the loan to be sanctioned. The loan must terminate before or when you turn 65 years of age. You must be self-employed with a regular source of income. The loan can be for the purchase / construction / extension of a non-residential property. A loan for renovation or improvement will be given only at the time of acquisition of property. Professionally qualified and self-employed individuals can apply. A minimum of 3 year’s work experience is a must.
During the transfer of property from one to another, the stamp paper and registration fee has to be paid which is equivalent to 7 to 8 per cent of the value of the property or those of circle rates. These rates are the notified rates of a particular area set by the government on which the registration charges on the value of the property are calculated. The circle rates can be seen on government registration and stamp department websites of each city.
