Rent Agreement

All you need to Know

We are living in a time where everyone is chasing their dream. It is either a settled career or a passionate dream or a set goal. Earlier, even now in some respects, “Roti, Kapda Aur Makaan” was the main priority in one’s life. However, there has been an addition of “Lifestyle” in the slogan. Today, people have knowingly or unknowingly have started to portray a king-size life. These mostly include buying a car, subscribing to high-end clubs, or renting a property in a posh area. Well, we speak of renting since Purchase property is a huge commitment.
So, this was the story of one section of society. Others cannot afford to buy a house and have a basic need of roof above their head, and they opt for a rented house. Thirdly, there is another section that rents their property. People either possess these properties or buy – which is not a debatable question.
The gist of the above discussion is that whether you are the owner or a tenant, security is the key. No one wants their hard-earned money to go waste on fulfilling the legalities. Therefore, you require a secure and legally binding rent agreement.
So, whether you are a landlord or a tenant, it is highly essential to have a rent agreement contract, and you should be aware of the terms and conditions of the same. Just signing the bond does not make you end your responsibility. In any way, you must not sign any legal paper without reading, but you must know about the clauses, the things that must mention, and the laws about it. The rent agreement should be error-free to protect the interests of both the parties and the document should serve as a piece of collaborative evidence in case of a dispute. Underneath are some of the very basic foundation questions you must be knowing the answers of irrespective of the fact that you are a tenant or an owner.
So, below are some of the very basic foundation questions you must be knowing the answers of irrespective of the fact that you are a tenant or an owner.

Points to be considered while drafting a rent agreement

There have been articles all over the internet that will let you know the do’s and do not of the rent agreement clauses. Secondly, there will be places where you will find what should be included in the rent agreement, however very generic. This article will help you in recognizing in a better way the points/clauses that you should mention while drafting your rent agreement.
So, below are the Seven dominant points that will not just cover your needs as well as be helpful in the legal terms as well.

Severability although considered as a legal precaution, sometimes, is one of the prime and crucial clauses in a rent agreement. The Severability clause states that if any one aspect of the rent agreement is found to be illegal; the rest of your agreement is still legally protected. Without the Severability clause, a judge can anytime consider the bond to be void if there is even a small clause that is found to be either illegal or might have been accidentally included. With this clause, your rent agreement gets that extra protection from being disqualified in a court of law.

The Overdue fees and allocation clause help you to know the exact date the tenant has to pay the rent and the overhead expenses with the details on late fees levy (the amount), grace days, and levy for non-payment.
The clause helps you to remember the details on your expense related to renting; On the Other side you can ask for all the fees to be paid first as from a legal point of view, it’s easier to sue for unpaid rent than to Sue for an un-paid levy.

If you do not set up a subletting provision your tenants going to sublet it whenever you are not present, the subletting clause prevents tenants from rent out their property. Although instead of denying sublease you can charge a one-time fee. For the service. In this way, the tenant can sublet the property when they are going back home or traveling, and you can make an extra buck out of it.

The Joint and severability clause helps you to claim rent and damages from all individual tenants separately. They all are individually liable to all charges. It allows you to consider all tenants as a single entity as well as it further helps for giving notice, serving court documents, collecting rent, or suing for damages.

The defaulter clause includes the charges and terms that would violate the rent agreement if the tenant is unable to pay the rent or they are performing an illegal activity or violate the rent agreement of the writ.
The best way to protect yourself from defaulters is to provide terms that could help you to violate the rent agreement as well as earn the rent as mitigation to damages. For example, a tenant found to violate the clause in the third month of a twelve-month agreement; You can charge the tenant for the remaining nine months as mitigation to damages or for the time you find another tenant.

The rent agreement renewal clause helps you to renew automatically rent agreement after it expires. Although some owners do not prefer rent agreement renewal as it binds them to a single tenant and for the same price usually if the price does not go up.
The reason for this clause is that it guarantees that the owner has 60 days’ notice to try to find a new tenant. If they fail to provide 60 days’ notice of non-renewal, they are still held responsible for 60 days of rent, unless the owner finds a replacement.

The use of premises clause includes the safety for you to prevent more people from becoming a tenant, by approving the initial number of tenants as the only people to use the property.
It is easier for the landlord to legally prevent their tenant from moving in more people in the house and those “unemployed” girlfriends and boyfriends that later turn out to be rogue tenants.

- Amount of rent, security deposit, other payments

The rent agreement should mention the amount of rent that you must pay each month and the due date by which it must be paid.
In most cases, landlords ask for a security deposit Which is usually equal to one- or two months’ rent amount. Mention the security amount in the rent agreement, the exact amount, precisely and when it will get refunded (to be mentioned along with the date)
Also, ensure that the rent agreement clearly states what else you will have to pay for like, electricity, water, PNG, maintenance, and so on. Also, it should be mentioned if there is a separate meter for utility connections based on which you must pay bills, or you got to pay a fixed amount every month.

- Duration of agreement and renewal criteria

Typically, rent agreements are executed for a tenure of 11 months. However, you can agree for a longer period as well. Make sure the tenure is mentioned.
Also, clarify the lock-in period, during which neither the tenant nor the landlord can terminate the agreement, and ensure it is mentioned in the agreement as well. “The rent agreement should mention the consequences of terminating it by either party before the end of the lock-in period". Typically, when the tenant must vacate the house before the end of the lock-in period, the security deposit gets forfeited by the landlord. Similarly, if the landlord wants the house vacant before the end of the lock-in period, she must compensate the tenant by paying an amount equal to the security deposit, in addition to the actual security deposit refund.
Note that the lock-in period is not the same as the notice period, which typically lasts one or two months. If the notice period is two months, you will have to give a two-month notice to your landlord in case you plan to vacate the house. However, the notice period is typically not valid during the lock-in period for either party.
