What is super built up area

Before you set to buy a commercial or residential property you need to understand what is super built up area. Let’s start with understanding the definition of super built up area.

Definition of super built up area

The super built up area of a flat is the sum total of the built up area and the mark up for common spaces like lifts and stairs. Generally the super built up areas is 25 per cent more than the built up area. It is also known as the saleable area.

Understanding and calculating the super built area

What generally is followed as the thumb rule for calculating the super built up area is the multiplication by 1.25. Let’s take an example here. Suppose the built up area of a flat is 710 square feet then the super built up area would be 710 * 1.25, which equals to 887.5.

Although there is no fixed rule that says the super built up area is always 25 per cent; it could vary between 25 and 30 per cent. It is observed that generally more amenities are given to the customers than what is charged to them. Ideally this multiplier could be more.

It is therefore always important to read the sale document carefully to know the exact multiplier of the built up area to estimate the correct super built up area.
