This query is : Resolved
My husband and me jointly took a housing loan and purchased a flat in navi mumbai. My husband is the first owner and his name stands first in the loan agreement, sale agreement, share certificate and my name stands second in all documents.
I want to know the following as a joint owner of the property:
1, Do I as a joint owner have any rights to question the working of the committee... Should i route all my queries only through my husband. According to the committee I have absolutely no rights as a joint owner.
2. Can i examine all the documents in our society without my husband consent?
3. If elections in our society have never been legally held for over 20 years and the Treasurer and Chairman continue their post without ever resigning whom should I take up this issue ?
This is very distressing for me, since I find that committee members just do as they wish, and my husband being peace loving does not say anything.
Looking forward to your valuable advice at the earliest.

As a joint member in the CHS you can avail all the rights, previlages and liabilities of a member excluding "right to vote" which can be exercised by "first" member. However, he can authorise you to cast vote on his behalf.
