Q1. what if he delays to pay advance
Q2. Do i have the right on the flat for position
Q3 Should i get extra amount on my advance
If the owner delays the advance of the lease, then you can seek compensation by approaching the consumer forum but this depends on the terms of the lease agreement. You will not have the right to possession as the owner has cancelled his terms. Lastly, you can claim extra amount, that is, compensation for the changes and delay.

You are entitled for compensation if you go to Consumer Forum or Civil Court.
