How many apartments/flats are there in total and how many have opted to become members of the association formed now.
Actually, an Apartment Owners Association (AOA) is an authority that protects the rights of the apartment owners, maintains the amenities in the apartment and works for the welfare of the residents of the apartments by conducting events or awareness programs. Apartment associations in India are formed by a voluntary association of the owners of a particular apartment in India.
In almost every case the goal of the Apartment association is not to make a profit but merely to take the best care of the residents of the apartment and prevent them from suffering from discomfort. Therefore, you will commonly find Apartment Owners Associations (AOA) performing tasks like ensuring running water supply, providing power back-up facilities, preventing disputes between the apartment residents and having cultural activities and fests to foster good neighbor relations. A minimum of seven members are required to form an association. Out of these 7 members, you need to appoint office bearers and others to ensure that the Association is managed properly. The office bearers are accountable to the rest of the Association and to the members of the Apartment as a whole.A memorandum has to be created. The memorandum will state the name of the society, the objectives and the names, addresses and occupations of each and every member of the Association.
The memorandum and bye-laws of an apartment association are crucial to the operation of the Association. All members of the apartment association are to be aware of the existence of the association and the maintenance charges payable, if any. Most disputes arise because the residents are not made aware of the rules and charges.
How many apartment owners are yet to become members of the recently formed association? If you people who are left form a a major lot than those who have formed the association, first initiate talks to to include you all as members or else you can form a association on your own and get it registered and then issue legal notice to those members to close their association and to join your association which consists of majority of flat owners.
