Tenant laws in Chandigarh

  • 1 Answer

A case was filed for eviction on bona-fide grounds however the judge allowed eviction on condition that if the petitioner relets the house on higher rates then the tenant has all rights to get the repossession of disputed property. My query is how long we have to wait for keeping the new tenant as per chandigarh law. The period to wait for letting to another occupant is 3 years in Delhi is it the same in chandigarh or differs?

Answer 1

A leave and license agreement is one of the most popular ways adopted by parties to ensure that the letting of property does not amount to a lease under tenancy related legislation. Unlike a tenancy or lease, a leave and license agreement does not create any property rights in favour of the person who occupies the house (licensee).

In case of tenancy as well as lease, the right to use the property gets transferred from the owner to the person who is renting out the place. However, no such transfer of right to use takes place in leave and license agreements. There is only a license given to the licensee for limited use of the property in a certain way. The terms of the licenses govern what are the rights of the licensee (the person who rented the house). This is the form of agreement most preferred by landlords, and 11 month leave and license agreements for residential properties have become a norm all over India.


Thus, you could ask the tenant to sign a new leave and license agreement, where in he/she agrees to reside for 11 months and any extension post that will depend on your approval.
