Society maintenance for commercial

I have been owning a Shop past 3 years, and society formation was not done. The shop was rented out. Past 2 years there was no communication from society about maintenance.Suddenly I have been sent an invoice for 2 years maintenance with penalty charges.
I am trying to reach them. But they are not ready to listen.
Query: 1. Can they charge me per sq.ft rate for maintenance plus sinking fund and repair fund?
2. Can they charge non occupancy for commercial shop?
3. Can I appeal for discount on the maintenance based on the non usage of shop due to pandemic?

What type of Society is referred by you ?

If it is a residential CHS how they can built and rent out shops ?

Is there any rent agreement between Society and tenant (you) ?

Relevant facts are missing from facts posted by you.

Hello,

Query: 1. Can they charge me per sq.ft rate for maintenance plus sinking fund and repair fund?

Society may adopt the method to charge the maintainance per sq. ft. basis. Sinking fund and repair fund are charged alongwith maintainance bill.

 

2. Can they charge non occupancy for commercial shop?

Yes, non occupancy charges can be charged if premise is given on rent.

 

3. Can I appeal for discount on the maintenance based on the non usage of shop due to pandemic?
No. Discount or concession due to pandemic may not be given. 

 

It is your duty to know about the society formation where your shop is located.

Have you been enrolled as a member of the Society? If not, why?
