Legal document of allotment of stilt area for parking

This query is : Resolved 

26 September 2019

Dear Sir,

I stay in Thane since 2005. There are 28 flats in our society. Few members of our society purchased stilt area for parking. They r saying that they are owner of that stilt area. Also few members sold their stilt parking to other members and new buyers. When asked they are not ready to show the legal documents with respect to ownership of stilt area? They are having allotment letter from builder on stamp paper which was registered by them. My question is :

1) Whether builder can issue such allotment letters to members ?
2) Registration of such letter is Valid ?
3) Can we consider this allotment letter as legal document for ownership of Stilt area for parking purpose?
4) Can we ask for copy of such documents for legal purpose?
5) Can they sell that stilt area alongwith their flat to third person?
6) Can stilt parking be sold by member to other member without informing society?
7) Can committee members issue NOC for sale of stilt area?
8) Can builder issue such allotments on first come first serve basis?
9) Is judgement issued by supreme court is applicable for the allotment / sale of stilt area before 2010?

Thanks and Regards?

Supreme Court has catagorically held that parking can not be sold, hence if sold, it is illegal and invalid.

You can not file complaint against the parking space allottees. Better course would be to submit a written complaint to the Managing Committee and endorse a copy of the letter to the Dy. Registrar of CHS of your zone You can then take further recourse to RTI. Follow the matter with perseverance and it will definitely help. Good luck.
