Comment on Maintenance charges in co-operative housing societies by mahadevan hariharan.
Is house maintenance charges are to be collected as per the Square foot of the flats by any law in Tamilnadu. Many societies are including all amenities like Maintenance of Parking Area (Which is same for all flat owners irrespective of their flat area), swimming pool / Gym maintenance charges, water charges & even garbage collection / cleaning on square foot basis, which seems to be absurd as these are incurred more on user basis or equally for all. So can you please inform as to what are the legally required facilities required to be included in the Society charges to be charged by the Society on Square foot basis from the residents and what can be on user based charges.
Would be thankful for your advise
