Q.Whitewashing charges on Tenant

Q. Whitewashing charges on Tenant

am staying at a rented apartment (Haryana) which I am going to vacate shortly- after a six month stay. The Landlord has said that he shall not be returning my deposit citing whitewash and repairs as reason. I would like to know the provisions in law, whereby he can do it, alternately - is there any law which makes whitewashing and minor repairs obligatory on the landlord. Lastly under what provisions can he ask for even more money for the above, and is there a particular protocol for it?

A. Dear Sir,
I presume you must have signed an agreement before taking the house.
You need to follow the conditions meticulously.If the terms and conditions says regarding payment, then you have to -pay otherwise simply do not bother to pay.Coming to white washing charges, it is the responsibility of the owner. See what is the standard practice there ?

A. Dear Sir,
It is all contract based agreement between you and landlord. If there is no clause in the rent agreement then he cannot refuse to return the advance amount. You can get issue a legal notice and file a recovery of money suit along with a claim for compensation for mental harassment.
