I am the treasurer of Housing Society registered under the Karnataka Societies Registration Act, 1960. One of our members has procured the area between two blocks at ground level from the builder access for which has been given only from his flat and it is mentioned in the sale deed as well as "Open Terraces Area". Our bye laws are not very clear and only talks about collection of charges for maintenance. In our first AGM, we had a decision to go by sqft. It was not clear documented which sqft to use, but we have been since inception (2017) collecting the same as per the super built up area given by builder.
Since this additional space sold by the builder has not been included in the super built up area, the concerned owner contents that he should not be paying any maintenance on that. However, this does not seem fair for the other members as they enjoy much lesser space and yet pay the same maintenance. Please guide.
