  1. I gave one house on rent for 11 months and made rent agrement on 50/- stemp paperin which the tenent is bound for 11 months time. After 3 month he wants to vaccant the house and not ready to pay the 8 months rent in advance. what can be done in this case

    1. Hi Meenakshi,

      Everything depends upon the exit clause on the rental agreement. If you have the clause where the tenant can give you a notice before X days and exit the lease before the end of the lease, the tenant will have the right to move out before the end of the lease (given that the tenant followed all the steps mentioned in your agreement). Please check your lease for this clause and make sure it is specified clearly in your future rent agreements.
