The Lahore Development Authority (LDA) has warned citizens not to buy property in five private housing schemes that it says do not have formal development approval.
These are Munir Gardens on Thokar Niaz Baig Road; Lalazar Gardens, Peco Road, Marghazar Colony; Mian Farm Houses near the T&T Aabpara Housing Scheme on Raiwind Road; Green Avenue Housing Scheme Near Gulshan-i- Lahore, Khayaban-i- Jinnah; and Yousuf Town, Defence Road.
The LDA said in a statement on Monday that citizens should not enter into any transactions at these housing schemes. Prospective buyers should always check the status of private schemes with the LDA, it said. The LDA statement said that the developers had been asked to stop the advertisement, sale and development of plots or face legal action.
