MahaRERA denies money to builder fordelayed facilities
A developer was ordered to not demand charges for facilities that have been mentioned in the agreement but not yet provided to the homebuyer by Maharashtra Real Estate Regulatory Authority.
At Andheri’s Runwal Elina apartments, Sunil Jajoo had booked an apartment and had registered the agreement for sale further executing it in September 2015. In his complaint, Mr. Jajoo stated that the date of possession on the agreement was December 2016 but the developer has failed to hand over the apartment within the stipulated time frame. He also stated that the developer has been demanding charges for club house facility which has not been delivered as on the date.
The developer’s advocate opposed that the project’s construction could not be completed because of reasons which were beyond the developer’s control and that made the dates ahead. The authority concluded the matter ex-parte. Gautam Chaterjee, Chairperson, MahaRERA, while disposing the matter concluded that the developer should not demand charge for the facilities/amenities like club house that are part of the agreement for sale but are not being provided at the time of handing over possession.
