Every month, the condo charges maintenance fee to as upkeep for the guards, taking care of the compound, ensure the lights are maintained etc - all managed by the JMC. Recently, a businessman opened a restaurant downstairs at the condo (ground floor). And after few months, because business is not good and not many people buy his food or eat at his restaurant, he is seeking reimbursement from the JMC for the money he has invested in renovation and development. So now, JMC is considering to pay the businessman a lump sum, where the money will be taken from the condo's sinking fund. What you think? Is this a good idea? Is it fair to the people staying in the condo? Is it fair to the businessman? EDIT: His food sucks by the way, for the same amount of money I can eat outside for a better meal. e.g. Nasi lemak Ayam no ikan bilis and kacang but charge same price as outside.
