The legal name of the association


I am an owner of an apartment in Bangalore. I was going through the Deed of Declaration registered by the builder, to which I become a signatory by signing From B while doing my apartment registeration. I have a question regarding the same.\

   In the initial paragraphs of the document, it is stated as " Salarpuria Symphony Apartment Owners Association" whereas in the Exhibit of the same, it is written as "Salarpuria Symphony Owners Association" and in the Definition clause of it, it states Owners or Apartment Owners are the same.

   End of the day what stands as the legal name of the Association.

Dear friend,

                      Since in the definition clause it has been expressly stated that both "Owners" and "Apartment Owners" mean the same, there will be no legal problem. For example if a person issues a cheque on either of the names it can be encashed. But in best interest and not to have legal problems later on it is best to have the Declaration amended as to either one of them after consulting the Builder. It is hard to say which stands to be the legal name of the association as the document can be construed in anyway according to the situation .
