• Maintenance charges-higher rate for rented apartments

I own an apartment in Trivandrum city that I have rented out. At the start of this year, a revision was made to the building maintenance charges. Additionally, as per the revised rates, the maintenance charges per sq.ft for rented apartments are higher than those that are occupied by the owner themselves.

Having failed to interpret the logic behind the difference in maintenance charges between rented and non rented apartments, I would like to know if this difference in rates is legally acceptable in the first place.

It is your Society matter.The rate would have been fixed differently by passing the same in Society's meeting and by members.if you feel it wrong request the Society to review in accordance with the bye-laws .

It is left to your apartment association or society, If majority members are disappointed with this, you can file review demand before society.
