[Resolved]  Apartment Association — Inappropriate action by Apartment Association


I stay in an apartment at Bangalore & recently I missed out on the deadline to pay the Quarterly Maintenance fee for the first time in the 2 years I have been there.

As a result, the Association unilaterally decided to disconnect Fuse of the Electricity Connection to my Flat, without intimation of such an act. They did send a notice to pay up the maintenance fee a week prior to this incident asking to pay up at the earliest. The regular feature in our Apartment is to pay a delayed fee with a penalty fee. In extreme cases, they decide to stop supply of water. However, in this case, they unilaterally decided to disconnect the power connection.

Hence I seek advise on whether our Apartment Association has done the right thing by tampering with the Governments property {Karnataka State Electricity Boards Meter}, when I have paid to KSEB.

Based on sound & factual advise, I would like to take it up with my Apartment Association accordingly.

Request comments please.

The apatment association of the apartment that we stay in has fixed seperate rates of montly maintainence for owners and teneants.
Whereas the owners (self occupied apartments) have to pay Rs.850 per month, the tenants (occupants of let out apartments) have to pay Rs.1000 per month. This, when the area of apartments are the same.
I wonder if the association is empowered to make such a distinction based on type of occupancy and fix seperate rates accordingly.
Could you pls. throw some light on this? What action could be taken against such a policy by the association?
I stay in Suraksha Elegance apartment at kodichikannahalli Road bangalore (opp mahavir marble)

I was a member of a team who was taking care of this apartment for day to today needs and maintenance activities (Since Association is still not formed) chosen president of that team was suppose to take care of important issues with in the building, Instead he occupied a extra parking within the building, without even submitting or showing the legal documents to the other owners of the apartments in the building. As I was a member of their team I raised a question that since there are no 40 extra parking so in my opinion it is illegal (which I am not sure also) instead parking should have been auctioned giving equal opportunity to every one.

Now after raising the above issue since it was within the team I tried to educate the other apartment owners by writing mails to the mailing group of the building but for my surprise others are little bothered.
taking advantage of the same these guys of the team hired third party gundas and asked them to make abusive and life threatening calls to me (again I am not sure if this is done by them or someone in the apartment is taking advantage of the situation) but I have the proofs and the witnesses for the same.

Also this apartment has 40 flats .All the flats are of different size and the issue is small size flats are few only. So rest of the owners taking advantage of the same proving their majority unanimously decided to pay the same maintenance of 1000 Rs which again seems to be injustice because when they cannot charge the guy who has even illegally occupied the parking how can they justify the same maintenance and also this is not a practice in other apartments where maintenance is collected on the basis of per sqft.

Now I want to take the legal action against the apartment owners in the building for all the trauma and sufferings I have had in this building. Can anyone guide me or suggest some good lawyer for the same.

your inputs will be highly welcome.
I tenanted my flat in W. Venkatapuram, Secunderabad and staying at Kurnool (AP). Since my flat on top, terrace is badly damaged due to rains and usage. i brought it to the notice of Secretary and treasurer of our owners' association in last Jul2009. since there is no concrete measures nor even assurance of time frame for the remedial action, i stopped paying monthly maintenance with an aim to get it repaired myself. But secretary and treasurer are only worried for maintenance and not taking responsibility for the repairs in common area. nowadays they started harassing my tenants and threatening stoppage of electricity and water to my flat. please guide me for the appropriate action in case they interfere with services provided by the Govt bodies. can it be taken up with local consumer forum for redressal?

Thank you
