Real estate touches everyone at some point of time in their lives. Real estate is much more than buying, selling or leasing immoveable property. It is a whole economy in itself. In fact some call it one of the key drivers of the economy. In order to understand what constitutes real estate and how to manage real estate transactions, it is paramount that one understands its basic fabric. That basic fabric is the essence of the book, which is a collection of real-life situations faced by common people when undertaking real estate transactions. It provides historical perspective for the current legislations and their evolution from the 19th century British India through seventy five years of independent India to the 21st century. It captures modern day practices, malpractices and reforms in the real estate sector. The book endeavours to bring out the practical nuances of dealing in real estate through numerous judicial pronouncements and contractual scenarios, which will enable everyone to understand the legal aspects and make informed choices.
