I have faced a doubt while arguing a case today.
The problem is that whether a Scoeity is empowered or has any authority to claim interest on the maintenance charges for the period prior to the formation of the Society or not.
The maintenance charges were enhanced by the Builder before formation of the Society and my client had asked some clarifiations. Pending clarifications, I had paid only the old maintenance charges. But after formation of the Society, my client had paid complete pending maintenance charges in the enhanced rates. Now the Society is charging interest for the period before formation of the Society. Whether they have the authority for this or not.
