  • Pune : Landlord getting harassed by tenant

    Hi , we have rented our property in pune last year with registered agreement and deposit. After couple of months tenant asked 6000 Rs for maintainance and didn't provide any proof of fixed or things under maintainance. We paid him all maintainance charges . After a yr he didn't renew lease for 1& half month and kept giving reasons .. finally after lots of pressure he signed the lease and within 20 days he wanted to vacat the appartment for which we approved and told that once we inspect the appartment we will promptly return his deposits.

    He vacated appartment on 20th of month and locked the appartment not allowing us to enter in the appartment without full payment of his deposit.

    Now , he is not ready to cooperate and allow us in our own apartment. We are ready to pay the deposit .

    Can we access our property once we hand over his full deposit?

    Normally, we see the Landlord harassing the Tenants , but it seems opposite here .

    What i understand is that you have written documentation on the lease . Did the tenant give you something in writing on vacating the apartment, as that would be helpful for you. If there is nothing in writing by the tenant & since he is not paying you any rent now, you can always approach the Courts and get the house under possession .

    .........but as you know, Indian judicial system is slow & cumbersome, so my advise is trying approaching the tenant and solving this mutually . If he is still not handing the apartment over to you, try meeting the Local Police Station SHO/Local influential Person and try to get the matter settled there. If everything fails, Courts are the last option, but i think, once he gets called to the Police Station, things would settle down .

      Thank you for your advice. We are trying to settle with tenant but he doesn't seems to be cooperative even after we agree to return his entire deposit.He is abusing our broker and asking extra money on top of his deposit.

      What we heard is police won't help in this matter and first we need to go to court.

    I hope you have a tenant verification done before giving out flat on rent. Kindly take the same, approach a lawyer. A notice or two would be straightening up matter for good. Approach police to file a complaint, if needed. If it goes down this path, eventually, yes, it would go through the court, however, there will be one goon less on the street. Sorry to see such situation. Keep communication formal, so it can be presented in court.

      Send him a registered A.D. letter with the help of a lawyer asking him to vacate the flat and hand over the keys. After keys are handed over, flat will be inspected and deposit will be refunded. Indicate that rent will be charged in full until keys are handed over. This letter will be useful if you decide to go to court.

      There is another way you can deal with unruly tenant, which I will not recommend:

      If you can afford to be a little more aggressive, you can break open the flat in the presence of society members and take possession of the flat. Since flat is already vacant, there should be no problem. Refund the deposit to him online and send letter of completion of contract.

        If you have rented this flat through a broker, it is best to approach the same broker again. It is their job to get the flat vacated. That is what they are paid for. Brokers charge 1-2 months rent to manage this business, and not for only opening and showing the flat to tenants.
