That depends on what the Bye Laws of your Society say for such a scenario. Kindly first see if there is any mentioning of such kind of scenario in your Soceity By Laws and if the By Laws are silent on such topic, then it is General Practice that the cost of the repairs has to be beared by both the Parties.
