Q.Starving landlord family due to non payment of rent by tenant.
My father is 87 years old and he is staying with his wife, son, daughter in law and a grand daughter in his own house. The main income of this 5 members family comes from the rent of the accommodation. Four tenants stopped paying the rent with this plea that they are paying the rent to the Rent control office as my father told them to increase the rent and as a result it becomes difficult for my father to survive.
Under these circumstances kindly advise how my father will come out from this imbroglio?
Regards
