The Society of our Apartment complex in Bangalore is proposing a 10% increase in maintenance charges for tenant occupied apartments of the complex, a move that is strongly opposed by the non-resident owners. The society is already charging moving in and moving out charge for tenants and is just a 100% residential complex, where NONE of the apartments have been rented out to any small business or parlours/spa etc. so the society's argument that rented out apartments increase the utility expenses is not valid. Can the society still go ahead the charge this extra 10%? is it legal in Karnataka? whats the point behind this as there is no way the tenants are using up more of the amenities than the resident owners?
