Apartment Owners Association Registration in Bangalore

Apartment Owners Association Registration in Bangalore

Apartment Owners Association Registration in Bangalore comes under Karnataka Societies Registration Act 1960 (KSRA). By law, the KAOA is the provision. But the confusion arises because there is no authority specified for it to register the association through the Registrar of Cooperative Societies is regarded as the competent authority in this regard. However, note that you have the provision to tackle issues if you go by the rules of the KAOA. When it comes to the KSRA, the powers are well laid out and therefore, it paves way for such confusion. At this juncture, it is important to mention that while the KAOA deals with apartment complexes, the KSRA’s jurisdiction involves- literary, scientific, charitable and other organizations. As of now, those registering their apartments along the KSRA guidelines, generally put in a ‘welfare’ motive in the clause.

The homeowner under the KAOA is the absolute owner with a clear title of the apartment and its proportional undivided share (UDS). It is governed by the Transfer of Property Act,1882.
