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:

  1. Payments: Clearly state the amounts for rent, monthly maintenance, and security deposit to avoid confusion. Specify the due date for rent payment each month.
  2. Late Payment Penalty: Outline the penalty or additional charges that the tenant may incur for delayed rent payments.
  3. Lock-in Period: Specify the minimum duration during which neither party can terminate the contract to prevent unexpected early termination.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. Pets: If the landlord does not permit pets on the property, include a clause stating that pets are not allowed.
  7. 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.
  8. Subletting: Clearly state whether subletting the property is allowed or not. If allowed, outline the conditions and requirements for subletting.
  9. 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.
  10. Notice Period: Specify the notice period required by both parties for early termination of the agreement.
  11. Entry and Inspection: Establish guidelines for how and when the landlord can enter the property for inspection or maintenance purposes.
  12. Use of Property: Outline the permissible use of the property by the tenant and any restrictions or prohibitions on certain activities.
  13. 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.
  14. Dispute Resolution: Include a clause for dispute resolution, such as mediation or arbitration, to settle any disagreements between the parties.

Note: You have the flexibility to include additional clauses in the rental agreement according to your specific needs, if necessary.

Andhra Pradesh Buildings (Lease, Rent And Eviction) Control Act, 1960

In Andhra Pradesh, the rules and regulations for rent agreements are governed by a law called the Andhra Pradesh Buildings (Lease, Rent and Eviction) Control Act, 1960 (Act No. 15 of 1960). This law exists to make sure that both landlords and tenants are treated fairly and their rights are protected. It covers important things like how long a rental agreement can be, how much rent can be charged, and what procedures should be followed if a landlord needs to ask a tenant to leave. It’s important for both landlords and tenants to understand the key points of this law to ensure that they are following the rules and maintaining a good relationship.

Here are some of the key provisions of the Andhra Pradesh Buildings (Lease, Rent And Eviction) Control Act, 1960:

  • The Act applies to all documents and instruments that are executed in Andhra Pradesh.
  • The Act prescribes the amount of stamp duty that is payable on different types of documents and instruments.
  • The Act provides for penalties for the non-payment of stamp duty.
  • The Act also provides for a process for the rectification of errors in the stamping of documents and instruments.

Stamp Duty and registration in Andhra Pradesh

In Andhra Pradesh, stamp duty is applicable to rent agreements as per the Andhra Pradesh Stamp Act, 1899. The stamp duty amount varies depending on the rental value and the duration of the agreement. It is important to pay the stamp duty as per the prescribed rates to ensure the legality of the rent agreement.

In Andhra Pradesh, It is mandatory to register all rent agreements whether they are of less than an year or more than an year. Registering the rent agreement provides additional authenticity and acts as a valid proof of your address in banks, income tax and all other offices which need your address.

To make the process of paying stamp duty more convenient, eStamping facilities are available in Andhra Pradesh. You can use eSahayak to get an eStamped Rent Agreement by sitting at the comfort of your home. This digital stamp certificate holds the same legal validity as physical stamps, making it a convenient option for paying stamp duty.

In Andhra Pradesh, the stamp duty to be paid for a registered rent agreement is based on the duration of the lease as follows:

  1. For lease duration of 0 to 10 years, the stamp duty is 0.4% of the total rent payable in the lease.
  2. For lease duration of 10 to 20 years, the stamp duty is 0.6% of the total rent payable in the lease.
  3. For lease duration of 20 to 30 years, the stamp duty is 0.8% of the total rent payable in the lease.
  4. For lease duration of 30 years or more, the stamp duty is 5% of the total rent payable in the lease.

For example, if you lease a property for 10 years at a monthly rent of Rs. 10,000, the total rent payable in the lease would be Rs. 12,000,000 (10 years x 12 months x Rs. 10,000). The stamp duty payable would be 0.6% of Rs. 12,000,000, which is Rs. 72,000.
