i have a purchased a property on 7th floor of a bldg. with a balcony attached to the living room. however the balcony has a deck style .i.e. open from 2 sides. it has a railing with glass, on the edge of the balcony. there have been cases where the glass of the balcony has fallen down. luckily nobody has been injured till date.
i have 2 very young children (aged 3 yrs and 3 mnths). so i had taken permission from the society to allow me to put a grill around the balcony with a shade on top (sunroof) for safety reasons. this will in no way encroach on anybodys property. they denied the permission saying it spoils the aesthetics of the building. i tried reasoning with them that it was only for the safety of my children. bit they r adamant and wont budge. infact i have been told that a legal notice will be sent if i try to do anything.
so inspite of having a balcony i can hardly use it for fear that something untoward might happen to my children.
also they wont allow us to have the sunroof. as we have balconies on alternate floors, there have been lot of problems with the people on floor above us watering the plants and dirting our balcony.
is the society in any way allowed to send us a legal notice. and what can be done to allow us to put up the grill in our balcony.
