Am looking for some advice on a situation am faced with from my CHS.
I have a flat in Mira Road and have given it out on rent which is about to expire.
Today the Chairman of the society informed me that going forward the Society will be charging me One Months rent as a fee for allowing me to rent my property. This fee is over and above the NOC charge that I may incurre if I rent my property.
I know in the past they used to charge me 1100/- and it was not a huge amount so never questioned it. But now, i think it is extremely harsh to be charging me a months rent for sub-letting my flat.
When asked for an explanation, no proper reply was given and was told that all other socities are charging this and it was passed in the General Body Meeting by all commitee members; so I will have to abide and pay.
Is this even legal? From what I have read that besides the 10% NOC charge, there is nothing else that the society can charge. I read somewhere about a registration fee which is 500 - 1000/- and guessing that is what I was charged in the past. However, one full rent is way higher than the 1100/- i used to be charged.
Any advice and guidance on this subject is appreciated. And if its not right, then whats the best way to approach this.
