1. Can he make an alteration / build any structure in the common area?
2. Each apartment owner has paid separately for car parking space, any excess parking space available after providing each apartment owner one parking space can it be sold by the builder to any third party?
3. Does the association have rights to stop the builder in case he indulges in any of the above acts? does the position of the association change in case it is not registered?

The builder has no right to make alterations in the common area as the other existing owners have equal rights in the common area.

Your second query will be depend on the future circumstances.

The association has every right to stop the builder from encroaching the common area and acting against the interests of the existing owners.

It is always advisable to register the association because registration provides various other benefits.

Sir
Thanks for the reply.
This is the first time iam raising a query in the last 5-6 months. My only earlier query was on deviation in floor and bank loan being rejected on that count.

In the present case the builder says the parking space after alloting to the owners will be given for rent by him to third party. Also the security space he wants to demolish and build a smaller one and rent the remaining space as parking.
To the extent of aprtments not sold can he say that the common space for the same is being used by him in the above ways.
Please clarify.
