When drafting a rental agreement, including the following clauses can help protect both the landlord and tenant and avoid potential disputes:
The Jharkhand Buildings (Lease, Rent and Eviction) Control Act, 2000 (hereinafter referred to as the “Jharkhand Rent Act”) regulates the letting of buildings and the rent of such buildings in the state of Jharkhand. The Act provides for the following with respect to rent agreements in Jharkhand:
Mostly people in Jharkhand pay Rs. 100 as a stamp duty for rent agreements having a duration upto 11 months.
Here is the information on stamp duty charges for rent agreement in Jharkhand for tenancy of 11 months and more than 11 months:
|Lease Term||Stamp Duty Calculation|
|Less than one year||3% of the total annual rent amount|
|1 to 5 years||3% of the average annual rent reserved|
|More than 5 and up to 10 years||7% of 1.5 times the average annual rent reserved|
|More than 10 and up to 20 years||7% of 3 times the average annual rent reserved|
|More than 20 and up to 30 years||7% of 5 times the average annual rent reserved|
|More than 30 and up to 100 years||7% of 8 times the average annual rent reserved|
Let’s understand this with an example.
If the annual rent of a property is Rs. 1,80,000 with an annual increase of 10% in rent then what will be the stamp duty for 5 year agreement duration?
To calculate the stamp duty for a 5-year lease agreement with an annual rent of Rs. 1,80,000 and a 10% annual increase in rent, we’ll follow the formula provided in the table.
So, the stamp duty for a 5-year lease agreement with an annual rent of Rs. 1,80,000 and a 10% annual increase in rent would be approximately Rs. 6,587.52.
Regarding registration, it is not mandatory for rent agreements with a duration of less than 11 months in Jharkhand. However, if you plan to create an agreement for more than 11 months, registration becomes mandatory.
