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:

  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.

  12. Use of Property: Outline the permissible use of the property by the tenant and any restrictions or prohibitions on certain activities.

The Arunachal Pradesh Tenancy Act, 2022

The Arunachal Pradesh Tenancy Act, 2022 regulates the renting of premises in Arunachal Pradesh. It aims to protect the interests of both landlords and tenants, and to provide a speedy and efficient mechanism for resolving disputes.

The Act defines a “tenant” as a person who occupies premises as a residence or for carrying on any business or trade. A “landlord” is the owner of the premises who rents it out to the tenant.

The Act sets out the terms and conditions of a tenancy agreement, including the amount of rent, the period of the tenancy, and the rights and obligations of the landlord and tenant. It also provides for a Rent Authority to resolve disputes between landlords and tenants.

The Act is based on the Model Tenancy Act, 2021, which was passed by the Government of India. The Model Tenancy Act is a model law that states can adopt or modify as they see fit.

Some of the key provisions of the Arunachal Pradesh Tenancy Act, 2022 include:

  • The tenancy agreement must be in writing and signed by both the landlord and tenant.
  • The rent must be paid on time and in full.
  • The tenant must not make any structural changes to the premises without the landlord’s consent.
  • The landlord must not evict the tenant without a valid reason.
  • The Rent Authority (Deputy Commissioner of the District) has the power to resolve disputes between landlords and tenants.

The Arunachal Pradesh Tenancy Act, 2022 is a significant piece of legislation that will help to regulate the rental housing market in the state. It is expected to provide greater protection for both landlords and tenants, and to make it easier for people to rent homes.

Stamp Duty and Registration Charges in Arunachal Pradesh

The rent agreement registration is not required for 11 months of agreement in Arunachal Pradesh. However, it is mandatory for rent agreements with a tenure of more than 11 months.

Here is a table of the stamp duty for a agreement, according to The Arunachal Pradesh Tenancy Act, 2022 :

The stamp charges for rent agreements in Arunachal Pradesh are as follows:

  • For rent agreements of less than 11 months
Rent Amount (in Rs.)Stamp duty (in Rs.)
Not exceeding 102
Exceeds 10 and does not exceed 502
Exceeds 50 and does not exceed 1003
Exceeds 100 and does not exceed 2005
Exceeds 200 and does not exceed 3008
Exceeds 300 and does not exceed 40010
Exceeds 400 and does not exceed 50014
Exceeds 500 and does not exceed 60018
Exceeds 600 and does not exceed 70022
Exceeds 700 and does not exceed 80024
Exceeds 800 and does not exceed 90027
Exceeds 900 and does not exceed 100030
For every Rs. 500 or part thereof in excess of Rs. 10007

The stamp duty for rent in Arunachal Pradesh for less than 11 months duration is calculated by dividing the total rent by 500 and then multiplying by 7.

For example, if the annual rent is 132,000 rupees and If we divide this by 500, we get 264. If we multiply this by 7, we get 1848 rupees. Therefore, the stamp duty for your rent agreement would be 1848 rupees.

  • For rent agreements of more than 11 months, and less than 5 years If the rent agreement duration is between 1-5 years, then the stamp duty is calculated with the average annual rent of the total duration. For example, if the monthly rent of first year is Rs. 10,000, and for the second year it is Rs. 11,000 and for the third year it is Rs. 12,000, then the average monthly rent for three years is Rs. (10,000+11,000+12,000)/3 = Rs. 11,000. So, the total average annual rent will be Rs. 11000*12 = Rs. 1,32,000. So the stamp duty will again be calculated using the above table i.e. (1,32,000/500)*7= Rs 1,848.
  • For rent agreements of more than 5 years, and less than 100 years
    • If the average annual rent is between 10,000 and 1,00,000, then the stamp duty will be 2%.
    • If the average annual rent is between 1,00,000 and 3,00,000 then the stamp duty will be 1%.
    • If the average annual rent is between 3,00,000 and 5,00,000 then the stamp duty will be 2%.
    • If the average annual rent is 5,00,000 and above, then the stamp duty will be 3%.

For example, If the average annual rent of a property is Rs.2,40,000, The stamp duty for it will be 1% of the average annual rent. This is because the average annual rent falls within the range of Rs. 1,00,000 to Rs. 3,00,000, for which the stamp duty is 1%.
In this case, the formula for calculating the stamp duty is:
Stamp duty = (Average annual rent) * (1%)
If the average annual rent is Rs. 2,40,000, so the stamp duty is:
Stamp duty = (2,40,000) * (1%) = Rs. 24,000
Therefore, the stamp duty for an average annual rent of Rs. 2,40,000 is Rs. 24,000.
