When drafting a rental agreement, including the following clauses can help protect both the landlord and tenant and avoid potential disputes:
The Uttar Pradesh Urban Buildings (Regulation of Letting, Rent and Eviction) Act, 1972 is a law that regulates the letting, rent, and eviction of tenants in certain classes of buildings situated in urban areas in Uttar Pradesh. The Act was enacted to protect the interests of tenants and to provide for a fair and equitable system of rent control.
The Act defines a “building” as any structure, whether permanent or temporary, which is used or intended to be used for human habitation or for any business, trade, or profession. The Act applies to all buildings that are situated in an urban area and that are let out for residential or commercial purposes.
The Act sets out the following provisions:
The Act also provides for a grievance redressal mechanism, whereby tenants who have been evicted or who have had their rent increased without their consent can appeal to the District Magistrate.
Section 2 of the Uttar Pradesh rent control law defines a “building” as any structure, whether permanent or temporary, which is used or intended to be used for human habitation or for any business, trade, or profession. The section also lists the types of buildings that are excluded from the purview of the Act, such as government buildings, buildings used for religious purposes, and buildings that are let out for less than 12 months.
Section 21 of the Act deals with the eviction of tenants. The section provides that a landlord may only evict a tenant if he has one of the following grounds:
If the landlord evicts a tenant without one of these grounds, the tenant may appeal to the District Magistrate.
The rent agreement registration is not mandatory for an 11-month agreement in Uttar Pradesh. The Uttar Pradesh Urban Buildings (Regulation of Letting, Rent and Eviction) Act, 1972, which governs rent control in the state, states that any rent agreement that is for a period of more than 11 months must be registered.
The stamp and registration charges for rent agreements in Uttar Pradesh are as follows:
For example, if the annual rent of a property is INR 1,00,000, then the stamp duty for a rent agreement for less than 11 months would be INR 40,000 and the registration charge would be INR 20,000. The stamp duty for a rent agreement for more than 11 months would be INR 80,000 and the registration charge would be INR 20,000.
It is important to note that these are the general rules for stamp and registration charges in Uttar Pradesh. The actual charges may vary depending on the specific circumstances of the case. It is always best to consult with a lawyer to get an accurate estimate of the charges.
Note: You have the flexibility to include additional clauses in the rental agreement according to your specific needs, if necessary.
