Click here to check the format of a rental agreement in English. The tenancy agreement should include the name and address of the landlord and tenant, the terms of the tenancy, the duration of the lease, the rent and the amount of the deposit, the restrictions imposed on both parties, the terms of termination of the contract, the terms of renewal and the indication of other costs, such as maintenance costs, repairs, etc. Note here that notarized certified rentals are not identical to registered documents. In the event of a dispute between the landlord and the tenant, the court will not accept a notarized agreement as proof. It is therefore important to register the rental agreement correctly. You must pay a stamp duty while you register the rental agreement which will vary depending on the city in which it is registered. This amount will be paid using the stamp paper you owe the government. In Delhi, stamp duty must be paid for 2% of the average annual rent and for leases of up to five years. In Noida, you have to pay 2% of the annual rent as a stamp duty, for leases of up to 11 months. Visitors: The agreement must contain a clause on who can visit you and when.
Under the provisions of the 2019 Standard Rent Bill, landlords cannot apply a pre-fixed rent increase for the entire period for which a tenancy agreement was signed. For example, when the lease expires after 11 months, the lessor cannot increase the monthly rent during that period. It is only at the expiry of this period and the date of registration of the new lease that the lessor is legally entitled to proceed with an increase in the rate that does not generally exceed 10% of the existing amount. In addition, the landlord must give the tenant three months` notice before increasing the rent under the bill. You can calculate stamp duty for file registration via the mandatory online calculator, which is available on the stamp and registration section portal, following the steps described here. If you preferred the cash fee payment method, SRO will send the notification to RC for pricing. Pay the applicable tax and registration fee, R.C will generate the receipt of the fee. After this receipt, the crime number can be obtained. Note: Please note for future reference repairs: the agreement must mention who bears the costs associated with wear and tear.
