MAHARERA ruled that builder cannot charge for open parking

Dated on: Monday 27th January 2020

The Maharashtra Real Estate Regulatory Authority (Maha-RERA) has ruled that open parking spaces fall within the definition of common areas in the Real Estate (Regulation and Development) Act, and hence developers cannot charge homebuyers for them. The ruling came during the hearing of a complaint by homebuyer Mahesh Shah against Sunny Vista Realtors and Persipina Developers, which is part of the Hiranandani Developers. MAHARERA member Bhalchandra Kapadnis directed Persipina to not charge any money if the parking space is open, and charge Rs 4 lakh if it is covered.
