Q.Eviction and Business Loss

Q. Eviction and Business Loss

Hi,
I rented a 3BHK house for running it as a Guest House. Since, societies generally do not give permission for running a Guest House, I signed the lease only after the owner took permission from the society. But on the first day of my occupancy, the owner called me up and told me that there was a miscommunication and that the society won't let me run a Guest house. She has returned my Advance rent and security deposit but she is refusing to bear the brokerage and other business costs which I have to bear because of her miscommunication with the society. Is there a way to claim this damage from her? The broker on the other hand is also refusing to return the money.

If the legal notice is against the dealer (agent): No. Chances are if you send a legal notice he might disappear or go into hiding. Better is to lodge a complaint against him and let police do its investigation. At least it will generate a fear in him that he might have to face a criminal proceeding if he refuses to pay and that you are serious to get back your money. Alternatively you can ask him to provide you with another accomodation for the same brokerage amount. See what works best for you.

If the legal notice is to be served upon the owner: Yes, but chances of recovering brokerage from the owner is slim as he had not received the brokerage. Will have no effect of such legal notice on the owner.
