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 Rajasthan Rent Control Act, 2001 (RRCA)

The Rajasthan Rent Control Act, 2001 (RRCA) has several provisions related to rent agreements. These provisions include:

  • The rent payable for any premises shall be as agreed upon between the landlord and the tenant. However, the rent cannot be increased by more than 5% per annum, and any agreement violating this provision would be void.
  • The rent is payable by the 15th day of the month next following the month for which the rent is payable.
  • The tenant is entitled to obtain a receipt of the amount paid duly signed by the landlord or his duly authorised agent.
  • The tenant is entitled to make improvements to the premises, but only with the prior written consent of the landlord.
  • The tenant is entitled to sublet the premises, but only with the prior written consent of the landlord.
  • The tenancy can be terminated by either party giving one month’s notice in writing to the other party.

In addition to these provisions, the RRCA also sets out a number of other rules and regulations related to rent agreements, such as the maximum security deposit that can be taken by the landlord, the grounds on which a tenancy can be terminated, and the procedures for resolving disputes between landlords and tenants.

Stamp Duty and Registration in Rajasthan

The rent agreement registration is not mandatory for an 11-month agreement in Rajasthan. This is because the Registration Act, 1908, mandates registration of a lease agreement only if the occupancy tenure mentioned in the agreement is more than 12 months. So, if you enter into a rent agreement for 11 months, you can avoid the hassle of registration and the stamp duty associated with it.

The stamp and registration charges for rent agreements in Rajasthan are as follows:

  • For agreements of less than 11 months: Rs. 500, and a registration fee of 1% of the rent is payable.
  • For agreements of more than 11 months: A stamp duty of 5% of the rent is payable, plus a registration fee of 1% of the rent.

For example, if you enter into a rent agreement for 12 months at a rent of Rs. 10,000 per month, the stamp duty payable would be Rs. 6000 and the registration fee payable would be Rs. 1200.

Types of Rental Agreement in Rajasthan

  1. Commercial Rental Agreement: Such kinds of rental agreements are signed for business or commercial purposes only and hence they rarely have a standard format as the agreement must adapt to the needs of the particular business being considered for agreement. In this kind of rent agreement, a large amount of money is involved and is signed for a long period. Hence, registration and proper stamp duty are rarely overlooked.
  2. Long-term Rental Agreement: This type of rental agreement is typically used for residential purposes where a huge lump sum is paid in advance and the agreement is for the long-term. Hence, Registration and proper Stamp Duty are important aspects of this kind of agreement.
  3. 11- Month Rental Agreement: This is the most commonly used agreement format in the state of Rajasthan. The term of this agreement is 11 months at the end of which both parties have the liberty to renew/ terminate the contract. A few months’ worth of rent is collected as a Security deposit. Registration is not compulsory as the term is less than a year and such leases will require the tenant to pay a fixed monthly rent to the landlord. Hence, it is advantageous to go for this arrangement and opt for an 11-month contract. Thus, this arrangement saves money payable towards stamp duty and registration fees.
