Before buying 5 Marla plots on installment in any of these housing schemes, you need to realize that they differ a lot in what they offer and one is definitely a better option for investing in 5 Marla plots in Lahore than the other.

CONCLUSION:
Bahria Orchard claims to be completely LDA Approved on its website and other social media accounts but there is no NOC to be seen anywhere. As shown below, when searched for on the e-khidmat platform, Bahria Orchard’s phase I is approved only, all of the other phases are either ILLEGAL or  in-process.

If your first concern for buying 5 Marla plots in Lahore is an LDA Approval, Bahria Orchard has already failed to be a viable option. However, some people just aren’t concerned about the legality of society and look for other features which is quite a stupid thing to do. If in the future, the society’s illegal land gets possessed by the government or there is a case against the society, you won’t be able to sell or transfer the plot you have spent your whole life’s savings on. Therefore, before looking for other amenities for buying plots on installment in Lahore, study the society’s legal status.

If a society is not LDA Approved, access to Sui Gas is not possible for its residents. Moreover, even though illegal societies have electricity, it is not a proper connection and cannot guarantee proper voltage. This can damage your appliances and can prove to be a fire hazard. Moreover, illegal housing societies are vulnerable to being demolished by the government.

On the other hand, Park Avenue aces the legality department and flaunts it proudly on all of its social media accounts as well as its website. Park Avenue’s original scanned NOC is posted all over its social media platforms as well as the society website so that it is easier for potential buyers to access it.

On top of this, Park Avenue’s sewerage system is top-notch with separate storm channels. Moreover, the sewage pipes used in the system are made in society’s in-house pipe manufacturing plant to ensure top-notch quality.

All in all, Park Avenue is a much safer investment option in comparison with Bahria Orchard. Aside from the LDA Approval, which is extremely important, the amenities provided by Park Avenue and Bahria Orchard are all the same and Bahria Orchard is still a lot more expensive than Park Avenue. Therefore, Park Avenue’s LDA Approval, similar amenities and affordable payment plans make it much more suitable for getting plots on installments in Lahore than Bahria Orchard.
