Bahria Town Karachi has announced to extend the deadline to obtain possession of developed properties till 31st January 2020. Previously, the management of the mega real-estate project had directed the property owners to clear their dues and apply for the possession of ready-to-handover residential and commercial plots as well as apartments and villas in different precincts. In this regard, a notice for Bahria Town Karachi possession had been dispatched to the concerned owners in December 2019.
The main reason behind the extension in the deadline, which was previously ended at 15h January 2020, appears the massive response Bahria Town Karachi has received over the past couple of days. The possession counters at the project’s office have witnessed an influx of property owners, thus prompting the management to extend the last date.
In a recent tweet, Bahria Town Chairman Malik Riaz also announced the plot location will be allotted to the old members according to the map. Meanwhile, those who invested in Bahria Paradise and Bahria Sports City will be able to obtain their plot numbers in March.
Although the possession process in Bahria Town Karachi is rather systematic, the public rush owing to the recent announcements can make it a little time-consuming. Therefore, if you want to avoid any unnecessary delays, you should familiarize yourself with the procedure to obtain possession in the upscale housing society in Karachi. You can also take a look at the map of Bahria Town Karachi to learn more about the project.
Let’s take a look at this step-by-step guide on applying for possession in Bahria Town Karachi.
Is your property ready for possession?
As mentioned above, Bahria Town Karachi dispatched notices to concerned property owners regarding possession handover in December. If you have received such notice, it means you can apply for possession by clearing outstanding dues, paying the possession and utility charges and submitting required documents.
However, if you haven’t received a notice, you can simply visit the ‘Possession and Category Information’ counter at the Bahria Town office and inquire about the status of your property by showing the statement of your last payment and/or your Bahria Town Karachi registration.
If your property is not ready for possession, you will have to wait for the next Bahria Town Karachi possession announcement. On the other hand, if your property is ready for possession handover, acquire the possession request form as well as possession and utility charges slips from the ‘Possession and Category Information’ counter. Also, don’t forget to ask about any other charges that might be applicable.
