I am a real estate agent. If I connect a client towards one project, the deal is done via me. If the project is not delivered on time or project is closed or delayed by some reason, I get into obligation & problem. Can my client sue me for the same, according to RERA?

  • According to RERA, every real estate agent registered under section 9 shall—

    - represents that the promoter or himself has approval or affiliation which such promoter or himself does not have;
    - makes a false or misleading representation concerning the services;

    This means it is the liability of a developer, if some issue has occurred due to which the developer is responsible
