    Dear Sanadiip,

    No, there is no such rule

    For the flats given on rent -NON OCCUPANCY CHARGES will apply in addition to the regular maintenance cost.

    Non occupancy charges will be 10% of the service charges(Common expenses-shared by total no of flats)

    eg: if the service charge-(common expenses towards security/ common lighting/ gardening/ housekeeping/ office etc) is Rs:50000/- per month. There are 100 flats in the society. Then per month service charges to the flat is Rs:500/- ; so for tenant it will be 10% addition, which is Rs:50/- permonth extra.

    Maintenance cost for flats which is occupied by owners / relatives {Family as described in the byelaw }= (Repair& Maint fund) + (Sinking fund) + Service charges+ parking charges.

    Maintenance cost for flats given on rent = (Repair& Maint fund) + (Sinking fund) + Service charges + parking charges + Non occupancy charges (10% of the service charges)
