Things to Check Before Buying a Villa in Trivandrum

Trivandrum is a rapidly expanding city and growing both vertically and horizontally year-on-year. There is a lot of residential construction activity going on in the city as demand for new housing is always on the rise. Known as a peaceful city with comparatively lower pollution, lower crime rates, excellent infrastructure and increasing job opportunities by virtue of the growing IT hub, Trivandrum is attracting more and more people to come settle down here.

All this and more are leading to a greater influx of people into the city and keeping real estate developers on their toes. There are numerous villa and apartment projects in various stages of construction available all over the city, with something suitable for every kind of taste and pocket size. For all those interested in buying luxury villas in Trivandrum, there are a number of projects available in peaceful suburban areas. Villas are more coveted as they are more spacious, private and come with the added benefit of owning the land on which the villa stands.

However, before you proceed to buy a villa in Trivandrum, here are some things to check out to help you make the right choice:


Gated community villa projects are usually located in peaceful neighborhoods away from the hustle-bustle of the city center. Since most villa projects require more space and are spread out on large tracts of land in the city suburbs, do ensure that there is functional connectivity and road linkages to important parts of the city.


Before getting into the buying mode however, do check out your finances with a magnifier. You will need to have sufficient funds to make the down payment – which comes down to a neat sum of money when it’s a villa. Aside from this, do ensure that you have enough funds kept aside for emergencies and other important things. Finally, you will need to have a steady source of income to pay the monthly EMIs for the home loan you take to complete the purchase of your dream home.

Contemporary designs

Since villas are usually bought by well-heeled individuals who know what good living is all about, these homes come with the latest features, contemporary designs, open gardening spaces and multiple car parking. They combine function and comfort, providing you with premium living experiences and treating you to scenic views and eco-friendly green environments.


Villas come with high-end specifications, contemporary designs, quality construction, branded fittings, and ultra-luxury features and stand on a plot of their own. In keeping with climate changes, most villas come with energy-efficient features too; all this and more call for higher pricing. If you are being offered villas at cheaper prices, don’t fall for the gimmick as such villas will be of sub-standard quality and design.


This is one of the most important aspects of buying your dream villa and will require you to be extra vigilant. If you don’t have the time to go through the list of necessary permits, approvals, certificates and documents, do avail the services of a property lawyer instead. Some of the paperwork you need to go through include approval certificates from the various civic authorities for land, construction, project design approval and permits for commencing construction.

You will also need to ensure that the seller has the right to the title deed of the land for construction and that there are no encumbrances or mortgages taken against the property. This will save you unnecessary hassles for the right to ownership down the years. You should also make an agreement for the delivery date of the villa and collect an occupation certificate before accepting the keys to your brand-new villa.
