Apartment Car Park Query
« on: July 18, 2016, 02:38:41 AM »
We own an apartment for the last 10 years on the 4th floor of a 10 storey building and were allotted a closed car park by the builder for which we paid. The car park is shorter than the car and our rear end of the car always has bird droppings and damaged by drainage leaks. So after discussing with the registered Residents association, we built a small temporary extension of 3 ft (sheets over a steel support structure) just about the car park on the external wall which does not hinder the driveway in anyway. But after constructing the same, one of the residents complained that it was not a legal construction. Please advise if that is true.

Technically you will need permission from municipal authorities for any construction/Extension  that is either grounded to earth or appended to the columns/beams of a building.

In your case, it looks like you have fastened steel to the columns and extended the beam of the building by about 3 feet which technically qualifies for obtaining permission from municipal authorities.

However if if is a temporary extension to protect from bird droppings and from drainage leaks and the same not being  used for habitation, then it appears to us that you do not need to obtain permission from municipal authorities.
A temporary structure can be dismantled should the Municipal authorities object to the same(normally at the time of property tax assessment building inspectors do visit and inspect buildings regularly in most of southern states) and will inform you if the temporary structure has to be demolished or regularized. So you need to check with your building inspector when he comes for property tax assessment.

Also i presume you have the permission from resident's association in writing for erecting a temporary extension.

Hope this helps.

Ignore is the best advice. In the mean time try to make an approval from PResident/ Secretary of the Apartment Association in respect of such construction.
