What Houzz contributors are saying:
DisadvantagesEach apartment has to pay maintenance charges to the RWA. This includes the cost of security, cost of running the lift, maintenance of gardens and electricity charges of the common areas.Since apartment complexes have a high density, the community lawn and other recreational facilities may become crowded during the evenings and weekends.In an apartment, the homeowner does not have the privilege to design the layout of their home or make any changes in the building facade. There may be lack of privacy in apartments as some balconies and windows can open into views of neighbouring homes. Also, the common walls and slabs between two apartments, transmit noise easily.
