I live in a apartment in chennai which has 6 flats. Builder has provided a common bore water line and a common sump water line to the over head tank. 5 of the residents wants to install a water meter in the bore well line and sump water line (common property - water line) without the consent of the 6th flat owner. Is this legally correct or can the 6th person sue them in Civil Court against their decision ? If this can be sued, under which act of law this comes under ? Please advice.
Basically we want to know if consent from all 6 owners is needed to install a water meter in the common water lines.
We do not have any legal associations in our appartments and there are no by-laws until now declared.
