How Do You Register a House Rent Agreement?

Rent agreement that is equal to or more than 12 months has to be registered as a mandatory requirement.

  • The original document of ownership required.
  • Two witnesses’ signatures are required. The witnesses shouldn’t be related to either of the parties.
  • The tenant, landlord, and two witnesses should also submit their passport size photographs along with valid ID proofs for further validation.
  • The completed document is then submitted in-person to the Sub Registrar office.
  • On the payment of stamp duty and registration charges, your agreement becomes a registered deed.

Why is it important to register a rent agreement?

There are numerous instances wherein parties don’t register their rent agreement to save some cost. The most prominent practice hence is to make a contract for 11 months to avoid the compulsory bracket.

As per the Registration Act, it cannot be admissible as proof if a rental agreement is not registered. It implies that in the event of a dispute between the landlord and the tenant, there is no acceptance of the un-registered rental agreement, and thus, no claim or decision can be taken based on the un-registered rental agreement.

To conclude, it is the responsibility of the landlord to register the agreement. If the landlord fails to do so, as a punishment, he/she will have to pay out INR 5,000 and/or be jailed for up to three months. Hence, make sure to have a rent agreement whenever you decide to rent out your home and vice-versa.
