Stamp duty and registration charges for flats in Kerala

In addition to the cost of the flat, you also have to pay Kerala stamp duty and registration charges. The registration of flats in Kerala is quite expensive and the registration fees for flats in Kerala has to be paid, and this is in addition to the sq.ft. cost of the flat which the builder in Kerala has quoted. The Kerala stamp duty and registration charges are about 15% of the value of the land and building. So for new buildings, when you are the first owner, it is common practice to only register your share of the barren land on which the new apartment block is to come up.

To avoid the Kerala land registration fees, the cost of the building is given as a separate contract between you and the builder to build the flat for you. This avoids paying Kerala stamp duty and registration charges on the cost of building the new flat or house.
