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.

The Manipur Land Revenue and Land Reforms Act, 1960 (MLR&LR Act)

The Manipur Land Revenue and Land Reforms Act, 1960 (MLR&LR Act) has a few provisions related to rent agreements. These provisions are as follows:

  • Section 106: This section gives the landowner the right to lease out their land to another person on rent, not exceeding the maximum rent referred to in Section 112.
  • Section 112: Section 112 of the Manipur Land Revenue and Land Reforms Act, 1960 (MLR&LR Act) sets out the maximum rent that can be charged for land in Manipur. The maximum rent is calculated as follows:
    • For land used for cultivation: The maximum rent is 25% of the gross produce of the land.
    • For land used for other purposes: The maximum rent is 12.5% of the market value of the land.
    The MLR&LR Act also provides for a number of exceptions to the maximum rent. For example, the maximum rent may be lower if the land is of poor quality or if the tenant is a member of a Scheduled Tribe. Section 112 of the MLR&LR Act is intended to protect tenants from exploitation by landlords. However, some people have argued that the maximum rent is too low and that it does not reflect the true value of land in Manipur. Others have argued that the maximum rent is too high and that it discourages investment in agriculture. The debate over Section 112 of the MLR&LR Act is likely to continue for some time. However, it is important to note that the maximum rent is only one factor that determines the rent that is actually paid for land in Manipur. Other factors, such as the supply and demand for land, also play a role.
  • Section 113: This section states that the rent payable by a tenant shall be the rent agreed upon between them and the landowner, or where there is no such agreement, the reasonable rent.
  • Section 116: This section requires the landowner to give the tenant a receipt for the payment of rent.
  • Section 117: This section allows the tenant to seek a refund of rent that has been recovered in excess.
  • Section 118: This section allows the government to suspend or remit rent in certain cases.
  • Section 119: This section allows the government to evict a tenant in certain cases.

In addition to these provisions, there are also a number of rules that have been made under the MLR&LR Act that deal with rent agreements. These rules can be found on the website of the Manipur Revenue Department.

Stamp Duty and Registration in Manipur

The registration of rent agreements is not mandatory for rent agreements of less than 11 months in Manipur. If a person still wants to register the agreement, here are the stamp and registration charges for rent agreements in Manipur:

  • For rent agreements of less than 11 months: The stamp duty is 1% of the annual rent and the registration fee is Rs. 100.
  • For rent agreements of more than 11 months: The stamp duty is 2% of the annual rent and the registration fee is Rs. 200.

However, it is advisable to register all rent agreements, regardless of the length of the tenancy period. This is because registration provides a record of the agreement and can help to resolve disputes if they arise.

Here is an example of the stamp and registration charges for a rent agreement in Manipur:

  • Annual rent: Rs. 100,000
  • Stamp duty: 1% * Rs. 100,000 = Rs. 1,000
  • Registration fee: Rs. 200
  • Total charges: Rs. 1,200

It is important to note that these are the general rates for stamp duty and registration charges in Manipur. The actual charges may vary depending on the specific circumstances of the agreement. For example, the charges may be higher if the property is located in a city or if the rent is high.
