Maintenance Charges prior to Registration
I have booked Ready to move flat in Bangalore in Dec 2020 & planning to go for sale agreement now and registration afterwards by Jan end.
Construction was completed by Q1 of 2020 & builder started allocating flats by June 2020
Now, as I got my cost breakup for sale agreement, i can see 51000 being charged under title of maintenance for year.
Earlier, i was informed by sales person that this is practice to take one year advance for maintenance by builder as builder has to take care of it till association is formed
I was under impression was that, i will be charged maintenance after registration & possession property
As there was no explicit mention of this thing in sales agreement, I tried taking it in written over mail for which CRM person replied that it will be charged from June 2020 till May 2021
My question is, as per RERA guidelines - ideally builder should not charge any maintenance cost for 1 year & if they are doing so it should be from date of registration or from the date builder decides ?
As we were not there to utilize the things before registration, how can builder charge us with past expenses ?
I am waiting to get answer of this question before signing sales agreement
Thanks in advance !
