Hi friends, This query is actually for my friend... Here is the scenerio... She recently decided to invest some money in plots in Chennai suburbs...She has now spotted one in Mannivakkam(which she says is about 8kms from tambaram and is along kancheepuram road)..where it is 20lacks per ground.. She doesnt (even I dont) have any idea abt the market rate there.. So what are the pros and cons abt this area?is it really worth investing there?Any hope of appreciation in the long run? So we both have another query abt registration...as she lives abroad right now ,she doesnt have any idea of visiting Chennai in the near future... In such a case ..suppose she registers the land in her mom's name and later to her name when she visitis...does she need to pay for the registration twice? if so is it worth to make a trip during the registration process? What are the factors she needs to take into account regarding documentation ..to prevent her from being a victiom of various frauds ?(Any govt websites to look for the authencity) Your earliest response would be very much appreciated.
