Self-Redevelopment Service

Why Self-Redevelopment?

Self-Redevelopment - oldest form of redevelopment. In the 60s, most of the buildings in Mumbai were developed by the society members themselves. They would come together, form a society, arrange the finances by contribution and mortgage, and set designs in place, and select contractors to construct the building. These buildings were designed as per the requirements and quality standards set by the members and they still stand tall and distinct due to the efforts and interest taken by the members. But leadership in an unknown territory, and the norms started becoming complex which instead made the journey difficult, tiring and unpredictable, which made the societies opt out and developers stepped into the picture.

It is one of the most difficult form of redevelopment although beneficial for the society. Usually the society as a whole appoints a member of the society as a leader who is ready to go through various hardships like approvals, appointment of contractors etc. However, there is a procedure for self-redevelopment which has to be followed correctly if a housing society wants to opt for self-redevelopment and avail all the benefits of self-redevelopment.
