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. The rental or rental agreement is written on a stamp paper. There are 2 types of rentals in India, one is a lease that lasts at least 12 months. This is governed by the rent control laws enacted by the state government. The other type is a rental and licensing agreement of up to 11 months, which is not covered by rent control laws. 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.
Most leases are signed for 11 months, so they can avoid stamp duty and other fees The lease agreement should specify the name and address of the landlord and tenant, the terms of the lease, the term of the lease, the rent and the amount of the deposit, the terms of termination of the contract, the terms of renewal and the question of who must bear other costs such as maintenance costs , such as maintenance costs.B. , containing. , repairs, etc. In order to avoid these juicy fees, tenants and landlords agree not to register the contract. As a result, most leases are signed for an 11-month period. In addition, the establishment of an 11-month lease gives the lessor flexibility in determining rent as the dominant market scenario.
