HYDERABAD: The Hyderabad High Court on Monday passed a restraint order against Lodha Bellezza builder preventing the firm from selling away 73 unsold flats in their twin blocks-Bellezza and Meridian–at Kukatpally.

The bench of acting Chief Justice Ramesh Ranganathan and Justice Abhinand Kumar Shavili made the interim order while hearing the plea of the builder to allow him to sell away the remaining unsold properties.

He was aggrieved with the interim order passed by a single judge, who prevented him from creating any further encumbrances on the unsold properties. However, upon a plea by the builder’s counsel, who told the court that some of the flats were almost sold and sale deeds have to be executed, the bench said that they could be done only with a rider that all such transactions would be subject to the final outcome of the petition.

Appearing for Bellezza block flat owners, senior counsel C V Mohan Reddy said they were lured into buying the flats with a promise that they would have spacious accommodation and California type flats.

“Now, the builder belied all our hopes and constructed hundreds of flats in the name of Meridian Block and is providing the open space and amenities meant for us to them also. When we asked him about this, he built a wall separating both the blocks,“ the senior counsel said. However, this wall became a problem for Meridian Flat owners, their counsel Pratap Narayan Sanghi said, citing total lack of facilities for their flat owners.

Meridian residents then approached the GHMC to demolish the wall. Since both ventures were approved on a single layout, the the civic authorities issued a notice to demolish the wall.

CV Mohan Reddy said this chaos was created by the builder and hence he should clear it. The bench sought an affidavit from the builder.
