you have purchased the property on 'as is where is basis'
prior to bidding, you ought to have visited the property, taken its inspection and made inquiries with society and other authorities whether any outgoings are outstanding and due from the defaulter member
you were given this opportunity before entering your bid amount in e-auction, however you chose not to make the requisite inquiries, which a person of ordinary prudence is required to do
you did not exercise due diligence before purchase
so now you cannot cry foul
as property is purchased on 'as is where is basis', you alone are liable to pay the amounts demanded by the society
however you do have an option to challenge the society's demand if its not as per law/rules
there is nothing impolite in the reply, We are here to give legal advise and not to buttress anybody!
as a bidder, you should not be convinced merely on the information provided to you by the auction or bank officer
you ought to have visited the society and made inquiries with the managing committee, which it seems, you have not
as stated before, you can always challenge the society's demand, if its not demanded as per law
you can write to the deputy registrar of co-operative societies to issue directions to the society
if there were maintenance arrears which were not paid by the defaulter, then society is entitled to charge interest on the maintenance amount
plz seek inspection of records from the society office as to till what period maintenance was paid by the original owner
also ascertain from other members if the renovation fee was charged and what was its quantum
