Comment on Maintenance charges in co-operative housing societies by Ashok.
I own a flat in a society at Indrapuram. I took the posession of the flat from the builder in 2012. I was never asked to pay any maintenance charges till now. Last month , suddenly I received a letter demanding an amount of around 2.5 lacs towards maintenance charges and common paint charges of the society. Am I liable to pay this amount while I never received any bill or communication from the society regarding this in last five years. Can I claim for any discount? Please guide.
