Money Management In A Housing Society – Collecting And Handling Money For Events

There are many things that you can learn during your time in a housing society, and money management is one of these. You’ll face situations where you may have to organize and manage money for any events in the housing society or other important functions.

Tips For Effective Money Management when Organizing Events

  • Inform The Association – When you plan on taking up some responsibility in a housing society, you should always inform the association first. This way everyone will have a clear cut idea on what you’re up to, and they’ll also be able to help you out in certain areas.
  • Form A Team – There’s nothing that you can achieve individually, because managing large amounts of money alone can be very hard. Form a good team of enthusiastic people preferably with who are experienced at managing money. Your team can have at least three to five members to make things easier.
  • Divide All Responsibilities – This is the best way to avoid chaos and confusion. If you’re collecting money for an event, assign the task of collecting all money to two or three persons. Use one member in the team as a treasurer, so that he/she can safely store the money. You can get the rest of the members to maintain logs and records of where the money has come in from, and how much is the overall value. People should be entirely responsible for their tasks, as this will bring in some professionalism.
  • Inform People In Advance – Nobody likes being rudely interrupted during their day, so inform all residents in advance that you’ll be collecting money from them for the said event. You can post on your online noticeboard and get a couple of notices printed out about the event and pin these up at the notice board. You can even use your apartment management software to broadcast a message to all residents, so that they know what’s going on. Decide beforehand on whether you’re looking to collect checks or cash and follow a standard format. You can even provide acknowledgement receipts for all received amounts.
  • Use A Bank Account/Save It Personally – You can save the collected amount in two ways – you can either use a bank account to save the money in, or you can physically have it with you or entrust the money to another team member. You’ll need to ensure that the money doesn’t fall to any form of unnecessary use and keep a firm grip over the proceedings once the money is in.
  • Track Down Expenditure – List out everything you’ll need for the event and create an estimate on how much you’ll be spending. You can try a few cost cutting measures if you find that you’re low on funds.
  • Bring In Transparency – The entire process should be made transparent, as money matters are always controversial. Coordinate with key members in the managing society and keep them in the loop on what you’re doing. Show them your estimates and the collected amount, and they’ll be able to help you manage the money in a better manner.

The Importance Of Electrical Safety In A Housing Society

Most people hardly understand the importance of proper electrical safety in a cooperative housing society. The tingling sensation that a minor shock produces in your skin may seem trivial, but more severe shocks can cause burns all over your body or even cardiac arrest.

You should know that almost all electrical accidents occur due to faulty wiring, or due to damaged electrical appliances. To keep your family safe and to prevent any mishaps from occurring, you can adopt a set of safety measures that can also be followed by all members in a cooperative housing society.

Safety Measures To Avoid Electric Shocks

  • Handling The Main Source: Always disconnect the main power source when you’re not using an electrical appliance. When you try and set right a faulty appliance, always disconnect the power cord before taking things forward.
  • Proper Placement Of Cords: Sometimes people place the extension cords under the carpet. This is a very dangerous practice as it can cause short circuits and this should be avoided at all costs.
  • Ensuring Proper Insulation: Always run the electrical cords in all appliances through a double check. Many accidents are caused due to electrical cords that are frayed and are not properly insulated. There should be at least a layer or two of insulation between your hand and the live wire.
  • Smoke Alert: Always be on the alert and check if there’s smoke coming from any appliance. This may be accompanied by a burning smell, and this means that some appliance is faulty. This can be prevented by unplugging all appliances when they aren’t in use.
  • Using Few Extension Cords: When it comes to extension cords, use a minimal number and ensure that you don’t overload them with countless wires. Fix up an ample number of electrical outlets in every room to avoid issues of overload.
  • Removing Bare Wires: Check if all the wires that run along the walls are properly insulated. Sometimes during the monsoon season, a few apartments in a cooperative housing society may face the problem of having wet walls. This scenario can get dangerous if the wires that run along the walls are bare, as electricity will easily be conducted upon contact.
  • Using A Tester: Always have a tester around the house as this can come in really handy. Whenever you turn a circuit off for maintenance purposes, use a tester to ensure that there is no current flow.
  • Having The Proper Equipment: You may know your way around electrical circuits, but you need to have the right equipment to safely work with faulty appliances and electrical lines. Always have a pair of rubber gloves that are well insulated in your kit.  You can also learn how to operate circuit breakers and fuse boxes.

Every family in a cooperative housing society should follow these measures, as electrical safety is not an option, it’s a necessity. The managing committee in a cooperative housing society should take note of the above steps and ensure that they are implemented.

All You Need To Know About Tot Lots (Kids Play Areas) Maintenance In A Housing Society

Tot lots are common areas in every housing society, a place where children get together regularly to play and spend their time in the evening. With its swings, see saws and slides, a tot lot is a vibrant place that’s almost always packed with people – and for this exact reason, every tot lot should be well maintained.
Children are prone to all forms of infections and most children contract infections from play areas as these are public spaces that aren’t very sanitary. When it comes to tot lots, there are certain steps that every housing society should take for their proper maintenance.

Tot Lots Need Regular Maintenance

Maintenance Tips For Tot Lots

The maintenance team in any housing society will be in-charge of keeping the tot lot in perfect condition. They can follow the below steps when it comes to tot lots:

  • The equipments in tot lots should be regularly checked to ensure that they are properly installed. Swings and other play items that are not properly installed can cause harm, so these should be checked in a regular manner.
  • Missing hooks and worn out bolts should be immediately fixed and any hooks or pins that jut out from tot lot equipments should also be set right. If a particular structure is not safe to use or is under construction, notices and labels should be put up and children shouldn’t be allowed near these structures. 
  • Tot lots that have plastic structures are much safer than the ones that have metal structures. Metal structures are prone to rust, so all metal structures must be regularly oiled and maintained well by the maintenance staff in order to avoid this.
  • Pest control measures need to be taken in common areas like tot lots, and stagnant water bodies and plants that attract mosquitoes and insects should be removed. Using insecticides in tot lots is not a good idea, as some chemicals are very harmful and can affect kids.
  • The many play structures in a tot lot and other equipments like benches and chairs should be power washed regularly. A good pressure wash will ensure that the dirt in such structures is properly eliminated. Once these structures are clean, disinfectants can be used to seal them against infections and microbes. This should be done regularly (at least once a week).
  • The sand present in tot lots and in sandboxes should be raked regularly. Foreign objects like glass items and pieces, broken toys, rocks, debris and feces should be filtered out. Due to their open nature, tot lots are prone to bird and animal feces, so the sand in these lots and any debris in the play structures need to be regularly cleaned.
  • A portion of the maintenance charges should be spent on regularly maintaining such tot lots.

To practice safety in such tot lots, residents can ensure that their kids wear appropriate clothing and shoes to avoid stepping on glass pieces or debris. A security guard can also be posted near such tot lots to attend to any emergencies and to prevent instances of vandalism.

Pets In A Housing Society – Are Your Furry Friends Welcome?

Having pets in a housing society can be quite hard – you’ll need to take some necessary measures to ensure that your neighbors don’t have a problem with your pet. When it comes to community living, you should view things from a fresh perspective to see whether you pet will be accepted by the other members of the housing society. 

So What Are The Factors Involved?

Here are some factors that you should take into consideration when you plan on raising a pet:

  • Check For Pet Deposit/Pet RentThis is not a very common feature in the Indian scenario, but it’s always better to check whether your housing society charges a specific amount of money for raising a pet. When it comes to a pet deposit, a portion of it may be non-refundable, so get all the necessary details beforehand.
  • Get The Managing Committee’s Approval – If you’re planning on having a pet, it’s better to notify the managing committee in your housing society and get their approval first. There may be a couple of regulations in your agreement or paperwork regarding pets, and you can learn about these through their help. Sometimes, the apartment association may provide an approval form in writing.
  • Choose Your Pets Well when living in an Apartment Complex

    Choose Your Pets Well when living in an Apartment Complex

  • Pick The Right Pet For Your Flat – Go for a sensible option when you choose a pet and double check with your neighbors before you get one. Some breeds of dogs are loud and restless, and these aren’t ideal pets that you can raise in a housing society. Some breeds of dogs are very aggressive as well and these should be avoided. Fishes, frogs, turtles, cats and birds are options that you can consider. Some birds can cook up a ruckus, so choose your birds carefully. Among dogs, there are certain breeds that you can consider, like poodles, basset hounds and spaniels. Lovebirds, macaws and cockatiels are species of birds that are ideal for apartments.
  • Restrict Your Pet’s Movements – Always keep your pets within your premises and keep them away from the common areas unless they’re on a leash. This is very important, because in this way you can ensure that safety of both your pet and your neighbors. Letting your pets run scot free around common areas is not a sensible thing to do, as children who’re playing in the neighborhood may get scared or injured.
  • Groom Your Pet Well– It’s important for you to groom your pet well and quell its aggression, for your pet to be accepted within a housing society. If you’re opting for a dog, ensure that it doesn’t pounce on strangers or chase them. Give your dog a bath every once in a while and let it get some proper exercise. Neutered dogs are healthier and more docile, so get your dog neutered as soon as possible.
  • Vaccinate Your Pet– Your dog should be vaccinated regularly against rabies, and this should be done at least once in a year. A healthy pet will be accepted in a housing society without too much trouble, so feed your pet some quality food and keep it healthy!

These simple steps can help you avoid many pitfalls that pet owners in a housing society may otherwise face.

Andhra Pradesh Apartment Ownership Act – Know Your Legal Terms

When you purchase an apartment in Andhra Pradesh, regardless of whether you’re buying an apartment in Hyderabad or in Visakhapatnam, you’ll need to know all the terms and legalities involved in the Andhra Pradesh Apartment Ownership Act as this act governs all the laws pertaining to apartments and other living spaces in the state.

It's Always Better To Know Your Legal Terms

It's Always Better To Know Your Legal Terms

What is the Andhra Pradesh Apartment Ownership Act?

The Andhra Pradesh Apartment Ownership Act provides regulations that monitor that promotion and ownership of apartments in the state, and this act has been active since 1987. Knowing all the laws mentioned in the act can be a very hard task, but to make sure that you understand what all the definitions and meanings imply and to prepare yourself for any legal procedures that you might face (even for registering your apartment), you can go through the basic definitions that are provided in this act.

Why do you need to know about the Andhra Pradesh Apartment Ownership Act?

Learning about these contextual definitions can help you stay in the same wavelength when you consult a lawyer. This can also come in handy because you can verify any differences that you may have with your builder regarding the project. Many conflicts arise when builders stray away from the established floor plan and start including new structures in the agreed design.

Some builders may also try and lease out common areas in the apartment complex, like the swimming pool and the parking lot, to other third parties. You can easily take legal action in all these instances, provided you know all about the Andhra Pradesh Apartment Ownership Act first.

Some Basic Definitions Involved:

  • Apartment – Under the Andhra Pradesh Apartment Ownership Act, an apartment is given as a part of property that has one or more rooms separately constructed as a unit in the overall building. This enclosed space can be used for residential purposes, for commercial or office purposes or for any other form of independent use. The enclosed unit should also have an exit that leads to public areas like streets or roads or to a common area that is shared.
  • Association of Apartment Owners – There are separate byelaws that take care of the formation of an apartment association and its constituting members. The Andhra Pradesh Apartment Ownership Act defines an apartment association as a group all apartment owners.
  • Building – A structure that has five or more apartments or two structures that have more than two apartments each can be classified as a building, according to the Andhra Pradesh Apartment Ownership Act.
  • Common Areas – Common areas in an apartment are mentioned in the Declaration. The Andhra Pradesh Apartment Ownership Act includes basements, gardens, cellars, parking areas, main walls, terraces, halls, stairways, corridors, entrances, exits and lobbies, and the entire space of land used during construction under the definition of common areas in an apartment complex.
  • Property – The overall expanse of land used, the common areas and the buildings together constitute the ‘property’.
  • Limited Common Areas – The common areas which can be used only by a particular section of the apartment complex are described as the limited common areas.

What Apartment Owners Association Rules State About Running Small Businesses From Home

If you have a potential business idea or service that you want to try out in mind, it is always wise to consult the managing committee in your apartment association well in advance. Having a small chat with the managing committee members of your apartment association can set a lot of things straight and can help you learn more about the rules and regulations involved with running a business from your flat in the apartment complex.

The Rising Trend

Workspaces are now shifting, and people no longer have to necessarily work from offices. With the advent of the internet, people can work from home with the help of a constant internet connection. Freelancers are popping up everywhere, and this is slowly turning out to be the latest mantra.

It’s likely that many people are continuing to work from home without any idea about the regulations or rules that they may be breaking. This is not a wise move, as this may turn out to be a problem sooner or later when other residents start noticing the general happenings.

Setting up home office can be tricky

Setting up home office can be tricky

So where do apartment complexes in India stand when it comes to using residential houses for commercial purposes?

The answer for this question depends on the type of business carried out. Every apartment association may have a different take on the same issue. In an overall view, using a residential apartment for business use is strictly prohibited, regardless of whether the business is conducted by the members of the household, or by a third party. The general laws state that residential units can be put to commercial use in a scale of 20%.

Do apartment association bodies have byelaws that pertain to this scenario?

Any apartment association worth its salt will have regulations that cite such instances. However, the laws state that a residential unit should not be put to ‘commercial use’. Not all jobs fall under this broad category, and this is exactly why you should consult the members of your apartment association and ask them for their views.

Commercial activities are defined as activities that involve the purchase, production and sale of physical goods, as per the law. Any kind of service provided does not fall under this category, and if that’s what you’re looking to do – your apartment association can give you the go-ahead.

Providing Services

Commercial activities are not allowed in a residential complex by the apartment association mainly because of security concerns. Your neighbors will obviously be annoyed if people keep visiting your house in noisy packs, by parking their vehicles in spaces that are purely meant for residents.

If you’re planning on providing services that are not commercial in nature, like Yoga classes, then you can talk to the managing committee in your apartment association and get the committee’s approval. You can also provide tuitions for school or college students, and other services like arts classes, dance classes and painting classes, provided your services do not interrupt the daily lives of your neighbors.

Apartment Owners Association Bye Laws – The Basic Bye Laws For Each Apartment Association

Apart from the deeds and declarations involved in buying an apartment, there are also many bye laws that you will need to be aware of. These bye laws will govern every property’s administration and a copy of these bye laws will always be attached to the Declaration statement. You will need to know the content of these bye laws before buying your apartment, just to be on the safer side.

You will also find it easier to communicate the legal aspects with your real estate lawyer if you’re aware of these bye laws and their contents.

One major aspect of these bye laws is that these cannot be modified or tweaked with, under any circumstance. In order to modify a few bye laws for practical purposes, they should be placed as an amendment along with the Declaration. Only persons with authority will be authorized to fill up such an amendment.

What Bye Laws Are

These bye laws will be mainly responsible for governing the activities of the managing committee. While deeds and declarations will be part of the legal processes associated with obtaining an apartment, bye laws will be more focused towards the managing committee in an apartment complex and how members are initiated and expelled from the same. This is why it is mandatory to have some sound knowledge on these issues in order to exercise your rights to the fullest.

Knowing All Bye Laws Can Be Helpful

Knowing All Bye Laws Can Be Helpful

 

What They Involve

  • Bye laws for apartment complexes will be mainly concerned with the following issues:
  • Bye laws will apply to the method through which the Board of Managers or the Managing Committee in an apartment complex is elected. This is the main area where these laws are applicable. Bye laws will clearly cover the following aspects under the subject of the Managing Committee
    • The strength of the committee (that is, the number of members the committee can/should have)
    • The term that each member in a particular position in the committee can serve
    • The methods involved in the initiation and removal of members of the board
    • The collective powers that the members of the board possess
    • The collective list of duties for all members of the board
    • The bye laws will also specify the conditions under which the services of a secretary can be engaged in the apartment association. They will also specify the powers that any individual acting as secretary in the apartment association will have.
    • The bye laws will specify the method through which a Secretary can be appointed or elected. The Secretary’s main duty under the bye laws has been specified as ‘maintaining the resolutions and minutes of every meeting’.
    • The same details as mentioned above will also be specified for the Treasurer’s post.
    • Bye laws will also cover the procedure for appointing and relieving maintenance personnel.
    • The bye laws also clearly state the conditions under which every resident should use the public spaces in an apartment complex, without interfering with the activities or privacy of other residents.  

These laws can help you get a fair understanding on the rights you hold as a member of the apartment association. They will also help you exercise your rights regularly and in the right manner.

How To Purchase An Apartment In Bangalore – Some Tips

Purchasing an apartment in Bangalore is a dream for many young Indians today, as Bangalore is a fast growing city and a hub for all people, young and old. It all started with the IT revolution, when major companies recognized Bangalore as a fertile ground where they could set up base. This was followed by extensive migration as many engineers started flocking to Bangalore in search of better career prospects.

Today, Bangalore is fast rising as one of India’s premier cities, close in Mumbai’s tail.

Buying an apartment in Bangalore can solve multiple purposes.

  • In a time of rising rents and accommodation expenses, it can be a great investment to actually buy an apartment in a thriving city like Bangalore as the general value is high.
  • You will also have constant access to all amenities, including swimming pools, gyms and playgrounds.

When opting to buy an apartment in Bangalore, there is a series of steps that you follow, as these will help you make the right choice without going wrong in any account.

The Right Location

You may have to decide on the right location before pouncing for the kill and buying an apartment in Bangalore in a hasty manner. Make sure that you take all things into consideration, including the apartment’s distance from your workplace and its distance from nearby schools and universities (if you have kids!).

While opting for an apartment in Bangalore, you can either choose one that is located bang in the city’s commercial center or one that is located in the peaceful outskirts. In case you have kids, the latter option would be more ideal. Commercial areas tend to be very noisy and bustling and all this can take a toll on you over a period of time.

Good Infrastructure

Check if the apartment is indeed your dream home or a blast from the past. A few apartments in India tend to be improperly furnished with no showers, fading walls, bad carpeting and non existent furnishing. You’ll be investing all your hard earned savings in an apartment, so exercise your right in being choosy. Do not settle for apartments where bathrooms just have a pail and a bucket. Instead, you can opt for a beautiful apartment that is well furnished on all fronts.

Establishing Limits

The key to making a good investment is proper calculation. You should create a budget and stick to it, in order to make sure you don’t spend it all away on the apartment. List out your requirements, (what you’re looking for in an apartment) and check out the many housing complexes located out there. Compare the rates with your budget and pick out the one that matches all your criteria. Talk to the builders and question them on the advantages of taking up an apartment in their complex.

Know Your Papers

  • Verify whether the apartment of your choice has proper BBMP Approval Certificates.
  • Make sure you check the flat’s Khata Certificate. Ask for this from the owner of the place.
  • The property should have no loans dependant on it, so check the Encumbrance Certificate.
  • Employ a good real estate lawyer and verify the content of these certificates and the content of the Sale Agreement and Sale Deed with him/her.
  • Wrap up all your pending payments before the period mentioned in the Sale Deed and get a sale agreement. 
  • Get your sale deed registered and get the Khata in your name. 

These small facts are not that well known, and these are essential in ensuring that real estate brokers do not take you for a ride. Pick out a great apartment following these simple guidelines and revel in your space in India’s software capital!
