I live in an apartment of 16 units (GF plus 3 floors).  I live on the third floor.  The owner living below me (second floor) has complained of leakages in his bathroom.  I did attempt some repairs (plastering) on my bathroom floors. This proved to be a temporary solution.  Now he is demanding replastering of my bathroom and refixing of tiles.  I insisted in this case the cost towards repair and materials to be shared mutually.  Am I justified in my argument? What does the rule say?

I would like to know on what basis the flat maintenance charges could be raised from the present amount? Our building is over six years old and has 65 flats. We recently completed painting the outside walls for which the corpus fund was used.  Being six years old, the water pumping motors for all the five blocks need replacement and also expenses are there for the OTA space closing, hard topping in the two wheeler parking area. Please advice.
