Important clauses which should be covered in a Rent Agreement
When drafting a rental agreement, including the following clauses can help protect both the landlord and tenant and avoid potential disputes:
Payments: Clearly state the amounts for rent, monthly maintenance, and security deposit to avoid confusion. Specify the due date for rent payment each month.
Late Payment Penalty: Outline the penalty or additional charges that the tenant may incur for delayed rent payments.
Lock-in Period: Specify the minimum duration during which neither party can terminate the contract to prevent unexpected early termination.
Consequences of Overstay: Clearly state the penalties or charges if the tenant continues to occupy the property after the lease term is over without renewing the agreement.
Food Habits: If the landlord has specific restrictions on food habits within the property (e.g., no consumption of non-vegetarian food, alcohol, or drugs), explicitly mention those restrictions in the agreement.
Pets: If the landlord does not permit pets on the property, include a clause stating that pets are not allowed.
Maintenance and Repairs: Define the responsibilities of both parties regarding property maintenance and repairs. Specify who is responsible for certain types of repairs and how they should be reported and addressed.
Subletting: Clearly state whether subletting the property is allowed or not. If allowed, outline the conditions and requirements for subletting.
Security Deposit: Clearly mention the amount of the security deposit and the conditions under which it will be refunded to the tenant at the end of the lease term.
Notice Period: Specify the notice period required by both parties for early termination of the agreement.
Entry and Inspection: Establish guidelines for how and when the landlord can enter the property for inspection or maintenance purposes.
Use of Property: Outline the permissible use of the property by the tenant and any restrictions or prohibitions on certain activities.
Utilities and Bills: Clarify whether utilities like water, electricity, gas, etc., are included in the rent or need to be paid separately by the tenant.
Dispute Resolution: Include a clause for dispute resolution, such as mediation or arbitration, to settle any disagreements between the parties.
Buildings (Lease, Rent & Eviction) Control Act, 1968 and Rules
The Buildings (Lease, Rent & Eviction) Control Act, 1968 (also known as the Rent Control Act) is a law that regulates rent and evictions in India. The Act applies to all buildings in India that are used for residential or commercial purposes, except for buildings that are specifically exempted by the Act.
These are the exemptions include:
Buildings owned by the government or a public sector undertaking.
Buildings used for educational or charitable purposes.
Buildings used for religious purposes.
Buildings that are more than 50 years old.
Buildings that are located in areas that are not considered to be urban areas.
The Buildings (Lease, Rent & Eviction) Control Act, 1968 exempts the following buildings from its provisions:
Buildings owned by the government or a local authority.
Buildings used for educational, religious, or charitable purposes.
Buildings used for industrial or commercial purposes, if the rent is fixed by a competent authority.
Buildings that are let out for a period of less than three months.
Buildings that are let out to a tenant who is a close relative of the landlord.
The Rent Control Act sets out a number of provisions that must be included in a rent agreement. These provisions include:
The name and address of the landlord and tenant
The address of the property
The purpose of the tenancy (residential or commercial)
The rent amount
The term of the tenancy
The rent agreement must be for a fixed term.
The rent agreement must be in writing and signed by both the landlord and tenant.
The rent agreement cannot be terminated before the end of the term without the consent of both parties.
The rent agreement must be registered with the Rent Controller.
The rights and obligations of the landlord and tenant
The Rent Control Act also sets out a number of restrictions on rent increases. The rent can only be increased by a maximum of 5% per year, unless the landlord can show that there has been a significant increase in the cost of living.
The Rent Control Act also provides tenants with a number of protections against eviction. A landlord cannot evict a tenant without a valid reason like:
Non-payment of rent
Subletting the property without the landlord’s permission
Using the property for illegal purposes
Causing damage to the property
If a landlord wants to evict a tenant, they must follow a legal process. The landlord must first serve the tenant with a notice of eviction. The tenant then has a right to challenge the eviction in court.

If the lease term is not less than 1 year, but not more than 5 years: The stamp duty payable is 1/2 * (Rs. 8/500) * value of the average annual rent reserved = 1/2 * (Rs. 8/500) * 240000 = Rs. 960.
If the lease term exceeds 5 years and does not exceed 10 years: The stamp duty payable is 1/3 * (Rs. 40/500) * total rent or value of the average annual rent reserved = 1/3 * (Rs. 40/500) * 240000 = Rs. 3200.
If the lease term exceeds 10 years, but does not exceed 20 years: The stamp duty payable is 2/3 * (Rs. 40/500) * total rent or value of the average annual rent reserved = 2/3 * (Rs. 40/500) * 240000 = Rs. 4800.
If the lease term exceeds 20 years, but does not exceed 30 years: The stamp duty payable is Rs. 40/500 * total rent or value of the average annual rent reserved = Rs. 40/500 * 240000 = Rs. 16000.
If the lease term exceeds 30 years, but does not exceed 100 years: The stamp duty payable is 4/3 * (Rs. 40/500) * total rent or value of the average annual rent reserved = 4/3 * (Rs. 40/500) * 240000 = Rs. 25600.
