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.

The Haryana Urban (Control of Rent and Eviction) Act, 1973

The Haryana Urban (Control of Rent and Eviction) Act, 1973 has some provisions regarding rent agreements. These provisions are as follows:

  • No property dealer can enter into a rent agreement without a license. This means that if you are a landlord or tenant in Haryana, you should only enter into a rent agreement with a property dealer who has a valid license.
  • The rent agreement must be in writing and signed by both the landlord and tenant. The agreement should also be stamped as per the Haryana Stamp Act.
  • The rent agreement must specify the following details:
    • The name and address of the landlord and tenant
    • The property being rented
    • The rent amount and the payment schedule
    • The term of the agreement
    • The rights and responsibilities of the landlord and tenant
  • The rent agreement must be registered with the Rent Controller in the district where the property is located. This registration is necessary to enforce the terms of the agreement if the tenancy period is more than 11 months.

The Haryana Urban (Control of Rent and Eviction) Act, 1973 also provides for penalties for property dealers who violate its provisions. These penalties can include fines, imprisonment, or both.

Here are some additional things to keep in mind when entering into a rent agreement in Haryana:

  • Make sure that you understand all of the terms of the agreement before you sign it. If you have any questions, ask the property dealer or a lawyer to explain them to you.
  • Get a copy of the rent agreement for your records. This will help you if there are any disputes in the future.
  • Pay the rent on time and in full. This will help to avoid any problems with the landlord.
  • Keep the property in good condition. This is your responsibility as a tenant.

Stamp Duty and Registration in Haryana

In Haryana, people generally pay stamp duty of Rs. 101 for agreements lasting up to 11 months is Rs. 101.

The Stamp Duty for rent agreement in Haryana are as follows:

Lease TermStamp Duty
Less than 1 yearRs. 7.50 for every Rs. 500 of annual rent
1 to 5 yearsRs. 7.50 for every Rs. 500 of annual average rent
5 to 100 yearsRs. 15 for every Rs 500 of annual average rent

For example, if we calculate the stamp duty based on the provided table for an average annual rent of Rs. 1,80,000:

For a lease term of 1 to 5 years: Stamp duty = Rs. 7.50 for every Rs. 500 of annual average rent

Given the annual average rent is Rs. 1,80,000, let’s convert it to multiples of Rs. 500: 180,000 / 500 = 360

Now, apply the stamp duty rate: Stamp duty = Rs. 7.50 * 360 = Rs. 2,700

So, the stamp duty for a lease term of 1 to 5 years with an average annual rent of Rs. 1,80,000 would be Rs. 2,700.

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