Comment on Maintenance charges in co-operative housing societies by Kasturi Rath.
Recently I purchased a flat from Lodha Builder, Mumbai (Thane ). The society is already registered three years back. But I purchase the flat directly from builder.
Now society is asking to clear the three years old out standing amount to issue the NOC< builder is playing around foul game. It was initially informed me that builder will pay all old outstanding amount pertaining to society.
Society saying they will not allow me to enter the premises unless they issue a NOC against the property.
As per builder the property is belongs to them and they are not liable to pay any maintenance charge as the property is not yet registered.
Now the property is registered on my name.
Please confirm Who is liable to pay the out standing amount,
Whether the amount is logical and can society charge same against the property when the property is not sold and registered.
Please provide your expert guidance urgently.
