I have purchased a flat in a recently constructed apartment at Kanakapura Road. The area comes under the jurisdiction of BDA. All the owners have agreed to form an association. There is some doubt, where the association is to be registered, Registrar of Firms or Registrar of Co-operative Society. Some owners mention that the association has to be registered with the Sub-Registrar. We seek your guidance?
You have informed that the flat is purchased in an apartment building, which is governed by the Karnataka Apartment Ownership Act 1972. As per Section 13 of said Act, Declarations, Deeds of Apartments, floor plans are to be registered under Registration Act 1908. Accordingly the owner’s association may be registered with the jurisdictional Sub-Registrar.
