The Occupation Certificate (OC) is an important document for those purchasing flats under the MOFA (Maharashtra Ownership Flat Act), and must be acquired before possession of property. Consumer courts will support the purchaser if the said is not done by a developer.

A Consumer Disputes Redressal Forum ordered a developer to give a purchaser OC within four months.

As per an agreement in September 2006, the purchaser bought two flats in a locality near PowaiLake. After paying the agreed amount for the flats, a remainder of one lakh per flat was agreed to be paid on possession. The possession was promised within 12 months from the date of agreement. The promise was not fulfilled
