I have booked a flat in a project’s phase-1 that has four towers with common amenities such as swimming pool, gym, etc. On measuring the carpet area, I found out that the common area percentage adopted for the tower I have booked a flat in is 27% whereas for two other towers it’s 21%. No special common utility area is available for this tower.
Can different common area ratios be adopted for different towers in the same phase that have same amenities?
The common area ratio will depend on the area of lobbies, staircases, passages etc., provided in the tower and in your case, it is possible that each tower is designed differently.
You can request your builder to provide a statement from the architect as to the common area attributable to each apartment as well as each tower.
