Expert Speak

Friday, June 16, 2017
By Ramesh S. Prabhu

I own a flat in a Co. Op. Hsg. Soc. in Mumbai since June 2011. I have kept the flat locked and visit it once or twice a month. I have never given the flat on rent. I have maintained the flat well and have not caused any disturbance or nuisance to other occupants in the building. I am also paying the monthly society and BMC dues regularly.  The Society has started charging me additionally charges per month as non occupation charges from February 2015 without any prior information or notice. Is the society justified in charging me the extra non occupation charges? How do I get rid of paying the non occupation charges?
— Joy Banerjee, Bhandup
Ans:
The society is not supposed to charge non occupancy charges to the flats which are kept vacant or is kept in the possession of the flat. The flats which are given on rent only can be charged non occupancy charges.

Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)
Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)You will be inclined towards deep introspection. You will realise that it is important to understand your inner self. However, Ganesha says spontaneity is equally vital, and playing with children is a very good way to be spontaneous. Today, you should refrain from taking major decisions of any kind without consulting the right people.
