Which Important Clauses Should You Include in Your 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.

What is Tenancy Bill, 2021, Uttarakhand and what does it mean for You?

The Uttarakhand Tenancy Bill, 2021 is a law that was passed by the Uttarakhand Legislative Assembly in December 2021. The law aims to regulate the renting of premises in Uttarakhand and to protect the interests of landlords and tenants.

Some of the key provisions of the law include:

  • Rent control: The law sets a maximum limit on the amount of rent that can be increased by landlords each year. This limit is currently set at 4%.
  • Tenancy agreements: The law requires landlords and tenants to enter into written tenancy agreements. These agreements must specify the terms of the tenancy, including the rent, the length of the tenancy, and the rights and responsibilities of both parties.
  • Dispute resolution: The law establishes a Rent Authority to resolve disputes between landlords and tenants. The Rent Authority has the power to hear and decide cases, and to issue orders that are binding on both parties.

The Uttarakhand Tenancy Bill, 2021 is a significant piece of legislation that is designed to protect the interests of both landlords and tenants in Uttarakhand. The law is still relatively new, so it remains to be seen how it will be implemented and enforced in practice.

Is Rent Agreement Registration Mandatory in Uttarakhand?

The rent agreement registration is not mandatory for an 11-month agreement in Uttarakhand. This is because Section 17 of the Registration Act, 1908, states that a lease agreement for a term not exceeding one year is not compulsorily registrable.

However, if you do want to register your rent agreement, you can do so. The stamp and registration charges for a rent agreement for less than 11 months tenancy in Uttarakhand are as follows:

  • Stamp duty: The stamp duty is calculated on the basis of the rent amount. The lesser of 1% of the total rent plus the deposit paid annually or Rs 500 is payable as stamp duty.
  • Registration fee: The registration fee is 2% of the stamp duty amount.

For example, if the rent amount is Rs 10,000 per month and the security deposit is Rs 50,000, then the stamp duty would be Rs 500 and the registration fee would be Rs 100.

If the rent agreement is for more than 11 months, then it is mandatory to register the agreement. The stamp and registration charges for a rent agreement for more than 11 months tenancy in Uttarakhand are as follows:

  • Stamp duty: The stamp duty is calculated on the basis of the rent amount and the term of the agreement. The rate of stamp duty varies depending on the term of the agreement.
  • Registration fee: The registration fee is 2% of the stamp duty amount.

For example, if the rent amount is Rs 10,000 per month and the term of the agreement is 3 years, then the stamp duty would be Rs 27,000 and the registration fee would be Rs 540.

It is important to note that these are just the basic stamp and registration charges. There may be additional charges depending on the specific circumstances of the agreement. For example, if the property is located in a notified area, then there may be an additional stamp duty charge.
