Tenant rights in rented housing property

Legal issues among owners and tenants are not so uncommon. So, it is extremely important as a tenant to know your rights well.

Feuds between the landlords and tenants are too common in the country despite the enactment of new laws and pronouncement of various judgments by different courts. 

Tenants take house, land, building or any other property on rent by paying rent through a lease or by becoming a licensee.

Sensar Pal Sharma, an advocate, informs, "The Rent Control Act (RCA) covers the lease or the agreement signed between landlord and tenant. All disputes, if any, are also settled according to RCA. And both, the tenant and landlord, have rights and responsibilities during a tenancy which are drafted in a deed."

The rights of the tenancy are defined in rental agreement. Recent Supreme Court's judgment in a litigation between the landlord and tenant, observed that a tenant cannot be evicted for at least five years, if, the tenant has complied with terms and conditions of the agreement between them. However, tenant can be evicted, if landlord is in the need of property for self use.
