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.

  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.

Chhattisgarh Rent Control Act, 2011

The regulations governing rent agreements in Chhattisgarh are primarily guided by the Chhattisgarh Rent Control Act, 2011. This Act aims to protect the rights of both landlords and tenants and ensure fair practices in the state’s rental market.

It is a legislation that regulates the letting of accommodations and the rent of such accommodations in the state of Chhattisgarh. The Act was passed in 2011 and came into force on May 10, 2012.

The Act applies to all accommodations in Chhattisgarh, except for accommodations that are specifically excluded by the Act. This includes flats, houses, apartments, rooms, and even shops that are let out for residential purposes. The Act defines a “tenant” as a person who occupies an accommodation under a lease.

The Act sets out the terms and conditions on which a lease can be granted.

The Act also sets out the grounds on which a tenant can be evicted.

The Act provides for a Rent Controller (Deputy Collector) to hear and decide disputes between landlords and tenants.

Here are some of the key provisions of the Chhattisgarh Rent Control Act, 2011 related to rent agreements:

  • The rent agreement must be in writing and signed by both the landlord and the tenant.
  • The rent agreement must be stamped and registered.
  • The rent agreement must specify the rent payable, the period of the lease, and the terms and conditions of the lease.
  • The rent agreement must be executed in the presence of a witness, who must also sign the rent agreement.

The Act also provides for a number of safeguards for tenants, including:

  • The rent cannot be increased arbitrarily.
  • The tenant cannot be evicted without a valid reason.
  • The tenant has the right to renew the lease at the end of the lease period.

Rent Agreement Stamp Duty Amount in Chhattisgarh

For rent agreements in Chhattisgarh, mostly the stamp duty amount is paid using stamp papers with a denomination of Rs. 100 if the agreement duration is less than 11 months.

It is not mandatory for rent agreements with a duration of less than 11 months in Chhattisgarh. However, if you plan to create an agreement for more than 11 months, registration becomes mandatory.

The stamp duty amount for a rent agreement in Chhattisgarh depends on the length of the lease and the annual rent.

The following table shows the stamp duty amounts for different lease periods:

Term of LeaseStamp Duty
Less than 1 year2% of the annual rent amount
1 year to 5 years2% of the annual average rent amount
5 years to 10 years1.5 X (2% of the annual average rent amount)
10 years to 20 years3 X (2% of the annual average rent amount)
20 years to 30 years5 X (2% of the annual average rent amount)
30 years to 100 years8 X (2% of the annual average rent amount)

Let’s calculate the stamp duty for a rent agreement with an average annual rent of ₹1,80,000 based on the given stamp duty rates for different lease terms:

  1. For a term of less than 1 year: Stamp Duty = 2% of ₹1,80,000 = ₹3,600
  2. For a term of 1 year to 5 years: Stamp Duty = 2% of ₹1,80,000 = ₹3,600
  3. For a term of 5 years to 10 years: Stamp Duty = 1.5 * (2% of ₹1,80,000) = ₹5,400
  4. For a term of 10 years to 20 years: Stamp Duty = 3 * (2% of ₹1,80,000) = ₹10,800
  5. For a term of 20 years to 30 years: Stamp Duty = 5 * (2% of ₹1,80,000) = ₹18,000
  6. For a term of 30 years to 100 years: Stamp Duty = 8 * (2% of ₹1,80,000) = ₹28,800

The rent agreement must be stamped and registered within 30 days of its execution.

The stamp duty can be paid on eSahayak and registration charges for rent agreements can be paid at any sub-registrar’s office in Chhattisgarh. The rent agreement must be executed in the presence of a witness, who must also sign the rent agreement.
