Advocates for transfer of Share in Pune

A co-operative society is the perfect fit for a residential building as flat-owners have common needs (water connection, watchmen, etc) and interests (maintenance of common areas, such as the terrace and compound). If you’ve purchased a flat in a new building, it would probably be best if you took interest in forming a society. The builder may also be statutorily obligated to form a society. For example, under Maharashtra Flat Ownership Act, 1963, a builder must form a society within four months of selling 60% of the flats.

 

But you needn’t wait for the builder to form the society. In many states, including Delhi and Maharashtra, ten flat-owners are enough to promote a co-operative housing society. A building without a housing society usually indicates that there is a dispute between members or a general lack of interest. If you’re considering buying a house in a building where the society has not been formed, find out what the problem is. If the builder does not form a society, rights to the terrace and the compound continue to rest with him.

 

We, the “VED LEGAL” provide registration and formation services which help you at every step of society formation, right from inception to final handover. We look after all the legal complications involved in society formation and carry out necessary negotiations with developers.

 

We have also completed the registration process for various projects. We specialize in society formation of housing societies, commercial societies, maintenance societies and large townships. We help developers and societies with complex registration process during society mergers, society split, and federation registrations.

 

Our specialized services include:

  • Initial screening
  • Gap identification and ratification
  • Process documentation and finalization
  • Dispute resolution
  • Society name reservation at respective co-operative departments
  • Account formation and legal documentation

INTRODUCTION
The Maharashtra Ownership Flats (Regulation of the Promotion, Construction, Sale, Management and Transfer) Act, 1963 (Hereinafter referred to as “the MOFA”) was an attempt to mitigate all the unscrupulous practices pertaining to promotion, construction, sale, management and transfer of flats sold on an ownership basis within the State of Maharashtra.

The Act defines a “flat” as:
“A separate and self-contained premises, which is used or is intended to be used as a Residence, Office, Showroom, Shop, Godown, carrying on of any industry or business including a Garage and the premises forms part of a building.
Explanation: Notwithstanding that provisions are made for sanitary, washing, bathing or other conveniences as common to two ‘or more sets of premises, the premises shall be deemed to be separate and self-contained.”
Moreover, a “promoter” is one who is defined as follows:
“…a person who constructs or causes to be constructed a block or building of flats [or apartments] for the purpose of selling some or all of them to other persons, or to a company, co-operative society, or other association of persons, and includes his assignees; and where the person who builds and the person who sells are different persons, the term includes both.”
The Sections 10 and 11 under MOFA jointly regulate the conveyance of title. Section10 mandates that as and when the minimum requisite individuals for a co-operative society or company have purchased flats, the promoter is required to submit an application, within the prescribed period, for the registration of the conglomerate of persons who take the flat either as a cooperative society or as a company.
This is followed by Section 11, wherein, the promoter shall take all the necessary steps to complete his title and convey, to the conglomerate of persons, registered either as a company or a co-operative housing society, who purchase flats, his right, title, and interest in the building and execute all the relevant documents thereof in accordance with the agreement. This period for the execution of the conveyance could either be agreed upon or if not, then the execution must be done in the prescribed period and documents of title, in the promoter’s possession or power is delivered.
