While constructing a property in Pakistan it is really important to hire a contractor who understands the importance of constructing the building according to specifications laid by the development authority of that area. Some individuals fail to understand its importance and face sever problems. To avoid falling into complications it is necessary to know the specifications before working on any construction project.

Just like Capital Development Authority (CDA) in Islamabad, Lahore Development Authority (LDA) works in Lahore. LDA Specifications are written proofs for organizing the graphical structure of properties in Lahore. It is really crucial for the success of a property in Lahore to follow all the construction details shown in the map (approved by LDA) for residential and commercial units. These specifications have a great impact on the cost, construction period, safety measures and the quality of construction.

Importance of following LDA Specifications

When owner (or contractor) finishes constructing a property in Lahore, he needs a “Completion Certificate” from LDA. If the property is constructed according to LDA specifications, it gets quite easy for constructor to get the completion certificate. If the property in Lahore is not constructed according to LDA specifications LDA refuses to issue a completion certificate for that property and imposes fine on that property.

All the properties which are constructed according to LDA specifications have more valuation worth after completion as compared to the other properties. For example: Johar Town and Iqbal town are few housing societies that are part of LDA scheme. Properties built in these societies according to LDA rules have more worth in terms of pricing as compared to others.

Lahore Development Authority rules play an important role in the ultimate success of any construction project in Lahore property market. LDA defines certain rules which make sure that the property being constructed whether residential or commercial property is safe for use. LDA specifications result in accurate construction upshots, less complications, quantifiable successful measures throughout the project life cycle.

LDA keeps a quality check on every property in Lahore that is part of its jurisdiction. Therefore, during the construction and after the construction, LDA employees inspect the property to ensure whether specifications laid by them are met or not. It holds the right to demolish or impose heavy fines on properties not constructed according to its rules.

Those who want to avoid any legal action against them and want to sell their property in Lahore on higher rates should follow specifications laid by LDA and get a completion certificate for their properties.
