How to know which is facing direction?
Criteria to select facing direction:
Building 1 & 2 are East facing while building 3 is North facing.
1st and 2nd Building is facing only one road, so their facing will be definitely EAST
After Considering Criteria a) Bigger Side of Building, b) Main Gate of Building, c) Society Entrance and d) Internal Road,
We can say that 3rd Building is NORTH facing.
Even if the Main Gate for 3rd Building was at EAST Side, Criteria a) Bigger Side of Building, c) Society Entrance and d) Internal Road will still make the Building face NORTH and not EAST even though it has the Main Door.
Such careful considerations need to be taken.
Building with one road will always be considered as that road facing the building.
When Building has 2 roads, the road from which the maximum view of the Building is seen decides its facing.
Each Building has only 1 facing direction, irrespective of the flat/apartment being on the front or back side of the Building.
For the above example, criteria b) Main Gate of Building is EAST facing but as the Building is constructed with a tilt, so the facing for the following building will be NORTHEAST and not EAST
The facing direction for the both the Bungalows will be NORTH.
