This query is : Resolved
We are staying in 60+ years old dilapidated building under Pagadi in Mumbai suburbs. We are not sure whether the existing Landlord is officially on papers. He is niether providing proper rent receipts nor his name is on Property card. Though we came to know that the original Landlord have sold the property to 3 partners. The existing landlord is one of the partner. Other two invisible.
Present landlord never took any initiative to repair or redevelop the building which is under bad condition now.
The location of our plot is such that it is under airport zone and half plot will go under road widening as per new DP.
I understand that tenants have no rights for redevelopment and needs NOC from Landlord. Under the above mentioned circumstances what tenants can do to initiate redevelopment?
Whether forming welfare association is useful?
Whether we can go in Court after forming the welfare association?
