Event alert: Best practices for associations as builder hands over a new apartment building

New Apartment Associations often face issues -- from electrical to sewage treatment. This event brings best practices on taking over from a builder.

The handover process with all its financial, operational and technical aspects can be hard to nail down. Yet, it is the most pressing challenge as an association prepares to run the affairs of a community.

Issues like late handover and defects within the apartment are common complaints of most individual apartment owners taking possession of their new property. At an association level, however, issues are even more complex and often ignored. The issues range from major defects, incomplete construction, lack of documentation, improper handover of maintenance corpus etc.

In a new apartment, a freshly constituted Association’s Managing Committees (MC) may lack awareness or resources or both. Issues blow up a few years down the line, often necessitating the Association to spend a large amount of money with no or minimal support from the builder!

ADDA in collaboration with Citizen Matters and Bangalore Apartment Federation (BAF) is hosting an event which focuses on practical insights, comprehensive checklists and how-tos on the handover management landscape. The event is targeted toward RWAs and housing societies that are either in the process of undergoing or about to undergo builder handover.

A typical multi-storied apartment building (or complex of many buildings) is a collection of multiple elements, each of which is integral to maintaining a proper quality of life for residents. It is essential MCs follow proper processes while taking over – from documenting information, to using the right tools to manage the complex to performing an audit before warranties end.
