What Does Circle Rate in Lucknow Depend Upon?

Circle rate in Lucknow depends on several factors listed below.

  • The area where the property is located.
  • Available amenities.
  • Age of the property.
  • Type of property, depending on whether it is a flat, an independent house or a plot.
  • Occupancy, i.e., either residential or commercial.

Also, the value of commercial properties is higher than residential ones. During property valuation, circle rates thus significantly affect the assessed value. However, when availing a property loan, it is preferable to go for a residential property mortgage. It is because lenders consider loan financing against residential properties a more viable option than otherwise.
