  1. You cannot purchase two properties jointly as exemption can only be availed only for a single property. You can either buy two (one each individually) or single with joint ownership.

  2. Yes, registration amount and further construction amount can be added to new house cost.

  3. Yes, a plot can be purchased and a new house can be constructed on it within next three years from sale. Total plot cost + construction cost can be counted to claim tax benefit.
