you are entitled to get compensation delay period if the said condition is availed in the terms and conditions of sale agreement. If yes, you have to issued a legal notice to him for the same, if the said builder failed to comply the demand legal notice thereafter you have to approach the concerned jurisdictional consumer forum.
