Question: Hi, In our building flat owners are cluttering the corridors by keeping their shoes and movable wooden shoe cabinets. I have fitted a small Metal Wall Mounted Folding Show Cabinet on the wall, to keep my corridor clean. Society is not allowing me to fix a wall mounted shoe cabinet with the wall.

The backside of the wall is my bedroom. Some flat owners are ordering that nothing can be fitted in the corridor wall, I can only keep movable shoe cabinets. Is this justifiable?

Asked from: West Bengal

You cannot fix the folding shoe cabinet with the wall because after fixing that cabinet it will become a part of that wall. Therefore it is a permanent attachment with the wall. 

The Housing Society does not permit any resident to make any permanent attachment with the wall. That has not sanctioned by the competent authority in the approved site plan.

Thus the decision of the society is correct and you cannot oppose it. You have no right, as a resident, to make any changes in the permanent structure without permission of the appropriate authority. Without permission from appropriate authority it will be an illegal use of wall.
