    Dear Mr. Swapnil,

    One potential solution could be that the society allows one car per unit. Rest cars can be parked outside.

    Collect R.C.papers of all flat owners. Those members, who have R.C. in their name will only be eligible to get an allotment of car parking in the society.

    I & my brother is staying in same Co-operative society. My brother is having a stilt park purchased from builder & done agreement in ther year 1998. now that flat is given on rent as he has transfer to other country. He parked his car in stilt & use when even he visit to mumbai, sometime i am also using. His tenenat has got a car and wants to park in the society open parking, as there is ampale space available. Committe is saying they will not give parking because that flat is on rent and owner is having stilt. In society bye-laws there is nothing like if person is having stilt and the flat is on rent cnt get a open parking space even this rule is not passed in our AGM. Secondly one of the committee member is having stilt and also taken additional open space, but they says because owner is staying. so they are playing with words and not replying to my letters too. what I should do?

    this is a answar given by one person .
    Collect R.C.papers of all flat owners. Those members, who have R.C. in their name will only be eligible to get an allotment of car parking in the society.

    is it correct that society can ask RC book
    society is not have power to collect RC book

    We have only 6 parking out of total 20 flat scheme, all are allotted. So one person having his Inova car with tourist passing, he is park without prior permission of society in side the premises of society. He is not paying single money . can any law for this tourist passing vehicle can not allowed in society

    i am view of that the parking issue which was passed in the agm, should be followed by the society's members. the person may be secretary or treasurer of the society that is not important, but responsible person always should follow the bye-laws, rules and act of the state that is my advice.

    What are the statutory norm for clearance to pass other vehicles. Is there any condition by Municipal Fire fighting department. Are there any legal binding or otherwise.

    Whether parking close to any member's house's window is legal? They lose their privacy

    If no.of flats are More than available STILT parkings, society/managing committee or even General body CAN NOT, allot/allow, open space parking to STILT parking member.
    Member having stilt has to park Second car outside. All the open parking should be allotted to Only to members who don't have parking allotment. Stilt parking member Not allowed to apply for open parking.
    Such open parking should be allotted on 3/6 months rotation so that each member will be able to park his car in society open space minimum for 3/6 months.
    STILT parking member has to pay BMC stilt tax plus parking charges, at least equal to open car parking charges.
    As society is maintaining, stilt area, also getting repaired, painted and light plus security charges etc , such stilt parking members SHOULD pay parking charges even though they have purchased from builder or allotted by society.
    If society has not collected any parking charges earlier, from stilt parking charges, society can collect now, effective first year of parking.

    Co operative society's main theme should be " Co operation ". Each member should get chance to park 1 car in the society premises.
    No member should be allotted second car parking if total spacs are less than no. Of flats.

    If any society , builder has not allotted parking for all members can other members can make demand for rent from parking allotted members in the the society account as the individual can not have ownership right the for parking area , jogging park, cube house,stare case etc . In case of bungalow only individual is owner of property as well as land. Pl clarify.

    Dear Sir

    Recently i have purchased a flat in mumbai from the 2nd owner of the flat, as the first owner had mortgaged the flat with the SBI bank, and since the 1st owner declared bankrupcy and no capacity to repay the loan, the bank auctioned the flat, and the 2nd owner purchased the flat, and post earning a margin he sold the flat which we purchased.

    Along with this flat there is a open stilt parking space and we have the original parking allotment letter of the same which we have submitted to the society along with all the relevant docs, share certificate, etc, BUT the few society and cmtee members came up saying that there is no stilt parking with this flat hence you cannot occupy the still parking, as it belongs to the society, where as we have submitted all the relevant docs related to the flat and stilt parking.

    Please advice how do we deal with this.

    thanks regards
