Points to be considered before buying individual plot and construction of a residential building:

Check whether the seller has a right over the property.

Check whether the layout has been approved by the CMDA. (Chennai Metropolitan Development Authority) and the local body. (Copy of approved layout can be obtained from the CMDA for a nominal fee.)

Check whether the roads and park area have been handed over to the local body through a gift deed.

Check whether the abutting road of the plot has been maintained by the local body or has been handed over to the local body.

Verify whether the plan has been prepared according to the development control rules.

To check whether all documents/certificates have been enclosed before submitting the plan for approval to the CMDA/local body.

Avoid unauthorised/deviated construction and stay free from the enforcement action of the CMDA.
