Why Rent Agreements Are Usually Of 11 Months Only

  • Uncategorized

“If the rental period is exceeded by another month, i.e. 12 months, several laws come into force that complicate the process for both the tenant and the owner. To avoid such a situation, the rental period is maintained at 11 months, regardless of the period for which the owner intends to rent his property. This contract will later be extended for a further period. This avoids multiple complications on both sides,” said Brajesh Mishra, a lawyer at the Punjab and Haryana High Court. Ajay Aggarwal, a resident of Shastri Nagar, recently got a tenant for his replacement two-room apartment. Among other things, he informed the new occupant of the apartment that the house must be vacated in 11 months, because the lease will expire after that. According to section 17 of the Registration Act 1908, leases of more than one year must be registered with the local authorities.
