TMR: All you need to know about wills & gift deeds!

Real estate has been one of the most preferred investment options globally. No doubt these immovable assets are India’s favourite when it comes to investments, legacies and bequeathing. However, thorough estate planning is essential to minimise any issues that may crop up in the future with regard to both, immovable and movable property.

There are two ways of passing on your assets to your loved ones. Through a will or a gift deed. Let us understand the difference between both and how to go about planning your will and gift deeds in this blog.

What is a will?

A will is a ‘written expression of the intention of the Testator (maker of the Will) as to the mode and manner of division of his/her properties (movable and/or immovable) to such person(s) as he/she may deem fit.’ To put it simply, it is a legal document written while the testator is alive and takes effect after his or her death.

How to make a will?

Any individual who is competent and of sound mind can bequeath his/her assets by making a Will. It can be written either by the Testator, or his agent and must be attested by at least two people, who are third parties to the will. While there are no prescribed formats when it comes to writing your will, the following points need to be covered:

  1. The name/s of Testator’s legal heirs and/or family members, if any;
  2. The name of the person/s to be appointed as ‘Executor’ who will carry out the directions and requests of the Testator in the Will. They will be in charge of the management and disposition of the assets there in the will;
  3. Details of all the assets owned/acquired by the Testator till that point, and;
  4. The mode and manner of distribution of the Testator’s assets

It is not necessary to register a Will to render it enforceable. A will can also be revised a number of times till the Testator is alive. Experts however advise getting it registered to minimise potential disputes amongst the heirs in future

What is a gift deed?

A gift under Section 122 of the Transfer of Property Act is defined as the transfer of asset/property made without consideration by a donor (asset owner) of his own free will. A gift is transferred during the lifetime of the parties and takes effect, subject to acceptance and/or delivery, etc. immediately upon the registration of the gift deed or immediately upon delivery and acceptance thereof in the case of movable property.

In layman’s terms, a gift deed is an agreement made between a donor and a donee that outlines the simultaneous and reciprocal act of giving and receiving. For a gift to be valid, it must be given voluntarily rather than under duress and without the exchange of money.

How to make a gift deed?

There are two key points to be noted when it comes to gift deeds:

  1. Acceptance: It is a legal necessity that the gift is accepted by the recipient after it has been executed and during the donor’s lifetime. If the donee does not accept the gift, it becomes void.
  1. Acceptance: It is a legal necessity that the gift is accepted by the recipient after it has been executed and during the donor’s lifetime. If the donee does not accept the gift, it becomes void.

A gift cannot be revoked, unless both the parties, i.e, the donor and donee agree to the same. At the same time, if the gift is intended to be made in favour of a person who is not your relative, and the value of the property which is the subject matter of the gift exceeds INR 50,000, as of the date of the gift, the recipient of such property has to include the market value of the property in his total income in the year of the receipt and has to pay the appropriate tax on such gifts.

Wills and gift deeds both have their own share of pros and cons. One has to consider multiple points before deciding on a specific course of action. Having said that, both are a symbolic representation of your love towards your near ones. Making the right investment choices which are beneficial to you and your family even in the future is a must.

Hyderabad has been thriving as one of the most vibrant real estate markets in the country. For numerous years, the city’s real estate outperformed the national average. The availability of affordable housing, a booming tech sector, and state initiatives were among the causes for the same. Even when other cities suffered losses, the real estate market in Hyderabad witnessed a high.

The real estate market here is credited for being disciplined, which, along with robust infrastructural development across the city, has enabled the sector to maintain an equilibrium of supply and demand. Despite the pandemic, the city’s real estate market remained quite active last year and was among all top cities – both in terms of sales and new launches. Many realtors and developers profited handsomely from this growth. However, the tendency is now shifting.

Despite numbers claiming that the realty sector picked up after the COVID-19 pandemic, the unsold residential inventory in Hyderabad has been more than 50% due to a significant number of under-construction projects. Let’s together understand what is causing this rise in unsold properties in Hyderabad. 

The rise in unsold real estate inventory:

The sale of apartments in Hyderabad has declined in the previous few months. Experts suggest that there are a startling 1 lakh unsold flats in Hyderabad. One of the reasons is multi-story buildings with a large inventory and little demand. The rise in costs is another key concern, as many purchasers are reconsidering their purchases. According to many media sources, there are nearly 80,000+ unsold flats in Hyderabad. This substantial unsold housing stock has made Hyderabad amongst the top southern cities, including Bengaluru and Chennai, with an increasing unsold real estate inventory.

Factors responsible for the rise in unsold real estate inventory:

City-based realtors point out that the cost of construction, registration charges and land rates have gone up in the past year, thus increasing the cost of under-construction apartments and to-be-built houses. Many houses which were built are left unoccupied due to high property rates. The cost of flats has increased marginally and, in turn, made them unaffordable. High inflation and the work-from-home culture have, in a way, aided this decline.

At the same time, land prices in and around Hyderabad have skyrocketed in the post-pandemic era. Rising steel and cement prices, labour expenses, and other inputs have, in turn, increased the cost of goods.

A study has revealed the unsold inventory rose by 55% Y-o-Y as the city saw a spurt in launches over the last few months. A large proportion of the unsold units are currently under construction.

A resilient market:

Despite the unsold inventory, the city has seen resilient demand for property, which is led by employees in the tech sector. The overall housing prices in Hyderabad, therefore, rose by 8% Y-o-Y. The spike in property prices is predicted to have little impact on home-buyers sentiments as their outlook towards the overall economic scenario and income stability have improved in the post-pandemic phase.

Among the main micro markets that have seen a surge in demand for residential units in Hyderabad are Ghatkesar, Malkajgiri, Medchal, Banjara Hills, Gachibowli, Kondapur, Kukatpally, Miyapur, Nanakramguda, Boduppal, Karmanghat, Kothapet, Maheshwaram, Puppalguda, Shaikpet and Shamshabad. The demand and the growth prospects in the vicinities of these regions have made these pockets the hotspots for residential markets today.

Hyderabad: A hotspot for open plots!

The demand for housing in Hyderabad stands witness to the growth of this city. With incentives and initiatives by the state of Telangana to boost the economy, the iconic city is now thriving as one of the biggest IT hubs in the country. Excellent standard of living across all parameters, opportunities for growth and secure investments has made it the choice of residence for young and old alike.

The major reasons behind the growth of the Hyderabad real estate market include infrastructure development projects undertaken by the Telangana state government and investor friendly policies. Several companies are expanding their operations in the city, including international giants like Amazon, Google, Microsoft and the rest. Several skilled professionals therefore are migrating to Hyderabad for better work opportunities and making this city their home. Hyderabad is today one of the top destinations for realty investments in the country.

A recent study has highlighted that southern cities are leading the demand for residential plots in the country. Notably, Hyderabad has witnessed the maximum price appreciation in plots.  The demand for plots and independent floors has significantly strengthened after the COVID-19 pandemic. Residential land is also believed to be a better investment option than buying a flat in apartment. Reports say that plots have generated higher capital returns in India. Experts say that one of the reasons for this demand could be the limited supply of plots in big cities because of paucity of large land parcels in the urban centres like Hyderabad.

Home buyers today are looking for either high configuration homes or private lands to build a home that’s customised to suit their needs. The continuance of Work From Home (WFH) policies and cultures and need for space is predicted to be one of the major driving forces for the same. A demand for plots has been in the range of 900 sq.ft to 1800 sq.ft has been noted. Other factors that have contributed to this demand include the reduction in premium charges and stamp duty in the real estate sector across states.

With the revival in the demand for plotted development, a number of well-known real estate developers have ventured into the plotting business. Unlike earlier decades, where owners of vast tracts of open land would plot their land and sell them as individual units, with several big developers joining the bandwagon, gated plot communities are booming in the business.

Medchal, Adibatla, Ghatkesar, Shankarpalli, Patancheru, Tukkuguda, Maheshwaram and Shadnagar are today amongst the top locations in Hyderabad for investments. The growth prospects in the vicinities of these regions have made them the hotspots for residential markets today.

Plots have undoubtedly become a go-to choice of investments in the post-pandemic real-estate marketplace. Additionally, a well-chosen land offers higher returns on investment when compared to apartments. With TMR Group gated communities you have multiple opportunities in this city of prospects to grow. Our plots in the lands of future opportunities make the ideal investment for a secure future for you and your family.

TMR: Old Hyderabad is gearing up for a new look!

Hyderabad- the land of pearls and Nawabs! Its charm lies in not just the glass towers that line its skyline but in the by-lanes of the old city, where the hidden treasures lie. Dotted with shops that sell bangles, pearls and other jewels, and the aroma of the famous Hyderabadi biryani and bakery biscuits lingering by, Old Hyderabad has a charm of itself. It wouldn’t be wrong to say that it’s another world in the lanes around Charminar and River Musi where heritage and history combine. This world has always fascinated people from far and wide and continues to leave them in awe to date.

The resilient real estate market of Hyderabad hasn’t swayed in the past 6 years and more, inspite of the pandemic and its disruptions. The housing market has remained at the forefront as resilient and flexible and has experienced stable growth over the years. Constant efforts by the municipal authorities and the state government have to be credited for this boom. Over the years, the city has not just fared well but also topped the charts as the best city to live in the “Quality of Living Index” for years consecutively now. It continues to be among the top cities in terms of purchasing power index, safety index, healthcare index and cost of living index, property price to income ratio index, traffic commute time index, pollution index, and climate index. A booming IT sector and employment opportunities in tech start-ups and unicorns have resulted in a rise in migrant influx to the city, who now call it their home. With increased hiring and hefty pay by Info Techs and start-ups, the economy in the state is growing like never before. The demand for rising is also credited to this growth. 

The residential market in Hyderabad is a mix of end users and investors, and with the economy growing and positive traction from both, the demand is projected to stay robust in the coming years. The city’s rapid urbanization isn’t limited to its outskirts and suburbs anymore. It has now seeped into pockets of the Old city along the streets of Ghanzi Bazar, Noorkhan Bazar, Pathergatti, Aghapura and other colonies around Charminar. Old homes in these areas are now making way for modern buildings that cater to the residential and commercial needs of their new-age owners.

While many have opted to revamp their spaces, others have leased out portions of their homes to tenants. These upgrades, local industry experts observe, have pushed rates to an all-time high. Notwithstanding the caps on construction, projects in this part of the city are priced anywhere above Rs.3500 per sq. ft. Several online real estate portals list apartments in this vicinity for sale between 3,400 and 5,500 per sq.ft. In other prime locations, residents have leased out entire buildings for commercial purposes that bring them anything between Rs.1 lakh to 1.5 lakh as rent.  

All these numbers and figures highlight the growing demand for housing in Hyderabad and the growing opportunities in the state.

TMR Booming:Hyderabad Home prices on a high with booming tech salaries!

Google this year announced plans to build its largest campus outside the Mountain View headquarters in the Pearl City of Hyderabad. But it’s not the only one. Hyderabad is also home to giants Amazon, Microsoft, and thousands of other tech companies, unicorns, and start-ups. In just 2021, the city added 2,250 tech start-ups and 42 unicorns to its ecosystem. So let us first understand what has brought about this bloom in the city.

Ever since the formation of Telangana, its state government has undertaken various initiatives and passed several laws to promote IT development and foreign investment in the state. These measures include the HITEC City (Hyderabad Information Technology and Engineering Consultancy City) to boost information technology, engineering, health informatics, and bioinformatics in Hyderabad, the Start-up Telangana portal to promote start-ups, MoUs with Microsoft and Google to develop the local ecosystem and accelerate sustainable economic development in the city.

Evidently, the booming IT sector and employment opportunities have resulted in a rise in the incomes of households in the state. With increased hiring and hefty pay by Info Techs and start-ups, the economy is booming like never before. As a result, Hyderabad has been ranked second in the country in terms of salaries drawn. The Salary Trends Report 2021 suggests that the average salary in Hyderabad for junior level (0-5 years of experience) stands at Rs. 5.93 lakh per annum, and for mid-level (6-14 years of experience), the salary is Rs. 17.71 lakh per annum.

Simply put, these paychecks are fuelling the demand for residential properties in the land of Nawabs like never before. The Telangana government’s Municipal Administration & Urban Development (MA & UD) report states, “The city’s residential market has emerged as the ‘best performer’ compared to other metros in terms of the property price to income ratio.”

Another report by Mercer has rated Hyderabad as the best city in India in the “Quality of Living Index” for six years consecutively. It remains number one in the purchasing power index, safety index, healthcare index, cost of living index, property price to income ratio index, traffic commute time index, pollution index, and climate index.

Constant efforts by the government have ensured that the city fares well on all parameters when it comes to lifestyle and living. The state Municipal Administration and Urban Development Minister KT Rama Rao had mentioned earlier this year that the government aims to make Hyderabad one of the top 30 cities to live in globally. . “We are not competing with any other city in India – our aim is to put Hyderabad among the top 30 cities in the world so far as quality of life and economic competitiveness is concerned,” he said.

Hyderabad has not seen a single year of decline in average price per square foot since its inception in 2014. Veera Babu, the Managing Director of Hyderabad & East India, Cushman and Wakefield, a global commercial real estate services firm, credits this boom in the residential market to employment generation in the city.

Hyderabad’s residential market comprises four major districts — Hyderabad, Medchal-Malkajgiri, Rangareddy, and Sangareddy. Of them, Medchal-Malkajgiri has recorded the highest home sales, with a share of 44% till April 2022. These increasing numbers continue to highlight the state’s growth and the rising opportunities for success in the state.

TMR Green Meadows, based in Chegunta near Medchal, make the perfect investments for a prosperous future in Hyderabad. These plots, in a 50-acre gated community, are just 30 minutes away from Medchal and surrounded by a number of growth opportunities for the future.
