• Structure of the property in poor condition

I am holding a shop in a commercial complex in surat , and  the  complex is about 15-20 years of age. But the structure of our complex is very weak and many a time it happened that some ceiling or some part of the staircase or the front elevation falls down . till now no casualty has occurred. but the our building  value has become poor. Now can the builder  or the structual engineer or any other person be held liable for this structure ? the  builder has handed over the administration powers to society . can he be driven to court or not? please guide me for this

1. Who is in management of the building. ask him to repair the same asap. 
2. If nay mishap occurs out of this, the person holding management of the building will be held responsible.
3. if this is not enough to make him repair the dangerous portion then file a proceeding u/s 133 crpc.
