1. What’s the carpet area?
This is a big bone of contention. Builders try to hoodwink buyers by touting the super area of the project. Super area includes the common facilities used by all residents like the lobby, elevators, staircases and corridors. These facilities can sometimes be up to 20-25% of the super area quoted by the builder.

The built-up area is the area covered by a house. This also includes the area that gets covered by walls and storage places. What an owner actually gets to use is the carpet area, which can be 60-65% of the super area.
