What our users have to say
I was planning to buy a plot in Nagpur. Before buying the land, I wanted to get all the documents verified and ensure it is free of fraud and forgery. LegalKart undertook every step carefully and their team was very responsive. I am impressed by their professionalism and would highly recommend their service.

I had purchased a flat in Bangalore. The builder had delayed possession from the committed date. I was paying a high EMI and rent which increased my monthly cash outflow and this left me with no money at the end of the month. I was very stressed and didn’t know what to do. I came across LegalKart and their Property Expert Lawyer advised me to send a legal notice to the Builder and also appeal to the RERA for the delayed possession. I got compensation from the builder for the delay and finally also got possession of my flat.
