Sir I m tenant at Modinagar Cane Complex Shops since 1980 or before. These shops are on rent however suddenly Cane Society (Ganna Samiti) sent a notice to us for rent increasement which was ten times to the existing one for example if 100 then now 1100. We protest against that at SDM office Modinagar. A case was filed there how ever SDM who was officiating the secretary of Cane Society given her verdict in favour of Cane Complex, which was legally wrong, we flied a case a district court Ghaziabad to challange thr verdict and to dismiss the case as SDM himself could not give verdict on such cases. Once final verdict was ready however judge got promoted and transferred. Since then no verdict came on our case, however in some cases court ask to deposit 1/3 rd of new rent. Leading to this Cane Complex with permission to SDM are sealing the Shops who r not paying the rent and they r not agreed to entail stay on the case as it was issued in 2014 and they r asking for new one. In instant case we want that stay be given to us and all rent 100% (old rate) be deposited with Bank and a speedy trail be expedited at District court Ghaziabad. Can it be done we don't have much time.

A. Better to consult a high court advocate to take up the issue as when matter is pending in district court you cannot approach the high court provided there is question of illegality & injustice and you can seek relief from High court.

The break-up of fixed cost is as below; Payment to Security & maid Common Electricity Garbage Collection Deisel for Generator Cleaning materials Drinking water for guards & maid Buffer money for unforseen expenses Fresh water Tanks Cleaning Garden Maintenance Motor(s) repairs/Electrical Works Main Gates Repairs Bulbs Lift Annual Maintenance Contract Common Plumbing Issues - Drain Pipes Sewage & Septic tanks Cleaning Apartment Adda Subscription Generator Annual Maintenance Transformer Annual Maintenance Borewell repair/Maintenance Minor civil works/Paintings Some tenants feels like the components added in the fixed cost must be borne by the owners and as tenants they are not liable to pay them. These include the below things Lift Annual Maintenance Contract Common Plumbing Issues - Drain Pipes Sewage & Septic tanks Cleaning Apartment Adda Subscription Generator Annual Maintenance Transformer Annual Maintenance Borewell repair/Maintenance Minor civil works/Paintings Hence want to know what are the costs that will be covered by the tenants in the above list and what are the things to be billed from the Owners. The association is not a registered association. Also can the tenants ask for the expense bills for the expenses made by the association? Also what items will be covered in the corpus and sinking funds?

Am from trichy. In Aug 2016, while we entered shop rental agreement(registered), building owner fixed lock in period to pay rent for 2 years, whether we run the business or not. Due to loss, we closed business on Oct 2017 & handover the shop key with notice (prior to 9 months). We demand to repay full amount of security deposit. Owner says, he will refund after deducting remaining 9 months rent. Till now, no tenant occupied. Is it legally correct or against law?

A. If the building owner has rented out the shop to anyone else, you can firs tissue a notice and file a case for recovery, Otherwise it is a futile attmept.

In a Family Bungalow, in possession of 2 brothers, 1 brother has rented out his portion of the house to his best friend. This friend / tenant has a car. The brother who resides in that house has objected to the tenant parking his car in the common compound of the family bungalow. He has no problem with the other brother parking his vehicle, but strongly objects to the tenant parking his vehicle there. Nothing about parking is mentioned in the Leave & Licence agreement. Can the tenant park his vehicle in the common compound of the rented premises?
Share this questionShare Icon

A. Dear Sir/Mam, Since the tenancy agreement does not speak of the parking area and the parking area and the rented are being different in nature are not to be used simultaneously. You are paying the rent of the house which does not silently includes the parking area. The co-owner cannot object to his brothers parking there as because his brother one co-owner of the house. Since, the objection is lawful and hence you can conatct the landlord for modification in the tenancy agreement. After modification the parking space alotted to you can be used for parking as well.

Hi, I stay with my family in stand alone building and not a society in which there is no water connection from neither corporation not borwell. My rent is 8000 and as per agreement I am liable to pay for Building Maintanance and Electricity bill which I agree but apart from that there is a water supply charges by tanker which is not mention in agreement and taken from us by owner. When i spoke to Builder, he said that water is Owner's responsibility as the water is a basic need in a rented flat. Please advice what legal action can I take as I am not responsible for water supplied by the tankers.
Share this questionShare Icon

A. Dear Madam/ Sir, you should have checked about the facilities and have a relevant clause in the agreement. Normally tenanted houses must be provided with water at the cost of owner. It is a common sense. Just stop payment of rent and let him go to Court for arrears of rent.

I am staying on a builder floor of 6 floors side by side and i am staying 2nd floor on one side. Out of 6 floors, apart from 2 floors (ground floor on my side and my floor), all other 4 floors with roof are related to single owner. That single owner is well known former politician and when we bought our floor, we forgot to check that the roof access from other side of the building which is in complete control of that single owner. Now, that owner says: - Parking on our side is being owned by him - Roof is in his control so he is now forcing us to get off the water tanks from roof Also, he mentally harrasing us from letting us go to the roof to see the problems occurs with water supply. Water tanks kept on roof is having some leakage due to which the sippage came down and his floors getting damaged. We told him that we are ready to fix the sippage root cause but he just keep on saying get off the water tank from roof. Please help me understand is this at all legally possible for him own the roof (stopping us to go to roof) and the parking space down the building. Also, confirm how to have the issues sorted out.

A. Try for right of easement. Understand Your Easement Rights on Your Property ust because your name is on title of the new home you’ve purchased doesn’t necessarily mean that no one else has any legal right to a portion of your lot. It’s called an easement, and it can give your neighbors and other entities a right to access a certain part of your land in some circumstances. Imagine making one last visit to a home you’ve just agreed to purchase, only to see the neighbor in the back cutting through your driveway to get access to the road. While you may initially assume the person is trespassing, he may actually have the right to cut through if an easement exists. Before you agree to buy a home, it’s in your best interests to find out if there are easements on the property (which there most likely are), and understand all there is to know about them. What Exactly is an Easement, Anyway? Simply put, an easement is a legal right given to cross or use another person’s land for a specific purpose. The key here is the “specific purpose,” which needs to be defined in detail. That means that your neighbor can’t arbitrarily put his patio furniture or start a vegetable garden on your land. The easement doesn’t give a person the right to possession; instead, it only gives the right to use it for specified intentions. Stated otherwise, when a person or entity is granted an easement, only the legal right to use the property is granted, but title to the land is still retained by the owner. Easements are more commonly granted to utility companies, such as telephone or electrical companies to run cable and power lines. But sometimes easements can be granted to neightbors who need to cross through your land in order to access the street. Three Main Types of Easements Just about every property has an easement. As a property owner, you have the right to know what type of easement your land is attached to, and how it will affect the enjoyment of your property. Easement in gross. The rights of utility companies to step foot on your property, as described above, are common, and are referred to as easements in gross. This is the most common form of easements, which grant utility companies the right to enter a property at no charge to provide their services. The majority of these easements are known about and easy to detect, such as easements for telephone and cable lines, and are typically discovered through a title search. But sewer and water lines aren’t always known about and are often discovered after digging starts to put in a swimming pool, for example. If easements are discovered this way, and were not disclosed to you when you purchased the property, any reduction in the value of your home (should that occur) may be compensated through your owner’s title insurance policy. If the easement was known to the city and properly recorded, but you weren’t informed of it when you bought the place, the title insurance provider is obligated to pay you for any loss of property value as a result of the easement. Easement Appurtenant. This type of easement can’t be transferred when the property sells, and as such, these easements are said to “run with the land.” That means that they’re part of the land’s ownership, and can’t be transferred with the seller upon the sale of the property. Easements for driveways, sidewalks and roads and sidewalks over a neighbor’s land, for example, fall under this type of easement. Let’s say your neighbor is granted an easement appurtenant in order for him to access the roadway from his driveway. When he sells his property, the new owner will have the same limited right to cross your land to get to the street. The current and future owners can’t use your property for any other purposes other than to access the road. This type of easement should have been communicated to you when you bought your home, so you know that your land will be used in this manner, and you won’t be unpleasantly surprised. The majority of easements appurtenant are created by an agreement between property owners or when a subdivision is created. Sometimes landlocked parcels of land that have no access to roadways are subject to an easement appurtenant by necessity over an adjacent piece of land. In this case, it needs to be proven that at some point in the past both properties were privately owned by the same person or entity. Prescriptive Easements. These types of easements are the ones that cause the most animosity between neighbors, since they are created without the permission of the owner who’s property is being used. The use of prescriptive easements can be shared and don’t have to be exclusive, which means property owners are often not aware when a neighbor is granted the easement. To illustrate, let’s say your neighbor builds a fence along what is assumed to be the boundary of the property. A few years pass, and one day your neighbor serves you with a quiet title lawsuit in an effort to establish a prescriptive easement to that portion of the land. After obtaining a survey, it’s discovered that your neighbor actually constructed the fence 3 feet into your side of the property’s boundary, and is now entitled to a prescriptive easement. After the required number of years of hostile use have passed (depending on the state), the neighbor can legally acquire a prescriptive easement. The key here is that a hostile environment has to exist; a prescriptive easement can’t arise if you give permission for your neighbor to use and take that portion of the land. What Are Your Rights? If the house you buy comes with an easement, you’ll have to comply. If your new property is the only access that your neighbors have to the street, you can’t legally block them from getting there. If you did, you’d be considered to be trespassing on an easement by necessity, and you can even be slapped with a lawsuit. Do Easements Limit Your Ability to Make Improvements on Your Home? You’ll definitely want to be in-the-know if you plan on putting an addition to your home or building deck. If you erect a patio over top of a portion of the land that a neighbor is legally allowed to cross through to gain access to the street, not only could you be forced to take it down, you could also wind up in court. That’s why it’s crucial to find out if there are any easements on a property before you decide to buy it. Can You Fight an Easement? You might be able to successfully challenge an easement, but only if the circumstances are right. And be prepared to take the battle to court. It could be a simple matter if the holder of the easement – such as your neighbor – agrees to terminate the easement agreement. Sometimes easements might also have an expiration date, after which it no longer exists. But many other times it can be tough to challenge an easement, particularly when it comes to prescriptive easements. These types of easements may be able to be challenged by claims that the part of the land was abandoned. If that’s the case, you’ll probably want to speak with a real estate lawyer for advice. When you agree to buy a home, it’s in your best interests to find out everything there is to know about it. Just as important as it is to have a home inspector on the job to uncover any physical defects, it’s just as important to find out if any current easements will compromise your enjoyment of your new home.
