Do you feel completely stumped by realty jargons like built up area, super built up area, carpet area, stamp duty and so on? Here is a glossary of frequently used terms in the Real Estate business so that you do not feel completely at sea if by chance you come across these.

  • Built-Up Area: It is that area of the apartment that includes the area covered by the walls.
  • Super Built Up Area: Super Built Up Area is most commonly known as sale-able area. It consists of Built up area plus the area for common spaces such as lifts and stairs etc.
  • Covered Area: In general, Covered Area is the actual area under the roof and this term is not so widely used.
  • Stamp Duty: Real Estate Stamp duty is a type of tax collected by the Government of India. Stamp duty establishes the agreement value or the market value, whichever is greater.

With a massive upswing in the real estate market, it becomes imperative for each and every individual whether or not involved in the real estate business, to know about these realty jargons. This would stand in good stead while buying any kind of property.
