No Punishment for Land Owners in Joint Venture Deals TN RERA


4 year(s) ago

Landowners who executed JV Deals in Tamil Nadu Get Relief from TNRERA. The Tamil Nadu Real Estate Regulatory Authority (TNRERA) has issued a welcome ruling for landowners involved in joint venture housing projects. Tamil Nadu RERA has stated that land owners part of a joint venture project, are not party to a case if a sale deed for Undivided Share (UDS) is executed in favour of homebuyers.

Key Takeaway:

  • Landowners are not liable for legal action if they have registered an Undivided Share (UDS) for homebuyers.


  • Homebuyers in a Coimbatore project (Vardhana Constellation) filed complaints against the developer (Sree Vardhana Builders) and eight landowners.
  • The issue arose due to confusion over who could be held accountable under the RERA Act.

TNRERA’s Clarification:

  • TNRERA adjudicating officer, G Saravanan, clarified the distinction based on the presence of a UDS for homebuyers.
    • In this case, the landowners had given a power of attorney to the developer.
    • The developer then executed UDS sale deeds and construction agreements with homebuyers.
  • Under these circumstances, only the developer (promoter) is liable for any violations of RERA.

RERA Applicability:

  • TNRERA distinguished this case from a previous one where landowners granted power of attorney to a third party and no UDS was registered.
  • In such cases, landowners could be liable for action under RERA.

Overall, this ruling brings clarity for landowners in joint ventures and protects them from unnecessary legal hassles.
