Q1. What is the meaning of deemed Conveyance?

Ans: The Promoter( Builder/ Developer) is legally required to convey the land and the building within 4 months of  formation to  the society or any legal body of the flat purchasers.  However, it has been the experience that many promoters( Builders/Developers) have not conveyed the land and building to the legal bodies. Therefore, government has amended the Maharashtra Ownership Flats Act, 1963 (MOFA) and provided for the deemed conveyance in favour of the legal bodies. Under the provision, deemed conveyance means after the expiry of 4 months of formation of the legal body, the land and building is deemed to have been conveyed to the legal body and to bring the same in the revenue record, a Competent Authority has been designated who will hear the parties on the basis of applications received from the aggrieved party and transfers the title in favour of the legal body by passing the necessary order and deemed conveyance certificate and appoint an authorised officer to execute the conveyance deed in favour of the society and execute on behalf of  non co-operative builder or the land owner.

Ans: In case of regular conveyance, the builder/ Developer/ Landowner prepares a conveyance deed, execute the same and appear before the Sub-Registrar of assurance for admitting their signature.
