About the Landlord & Tenant Laws


The term landlord refers to a person who owns property and allows another person to use it for a fee. The person using the property is called a tenant. The agreement between a landlord and a tenant is called a lease or rental agreement. The landlord and tenant relationship has its roots in Feudalism, a system of land use and ownership that flourished in Europe between the tenth and thirteenth centuries. Under feudalism land was owned and controlled by a military or political sovereign ruler. This ruler gave portions of land he or she owned to another person, called a lord. The lord, in turn, could allow another person, called a vassal, to use smaller portions of the lord's land. The vassal pledged allegiance and military or other service to the lord in exchange for the right to live and work on the land.

Regularizing and Legal Recognition of Landlord & Tenant Laws


The tenancy agreements are of 2 major kinds of tenancy agreements, the lease agreements that are governed as per the Rent Control Laws and the license agreement which aren’t.

There are several applicable laws to this topic with special importance for local laws. Some of the applicable laws include Maharashtra Rent Act 1999, Delhi Rent Act 1995, Tamil Nadu Buildings (Lease and Rental Control) Act 1960, Transfer of Property Act, Planning and Development (Housing) and Residential Tenancies Act 2016, Landlord and Tenant Acts, etc. A typical tenancy agreement does not include subleasing.

Both tenants and the landlord enjoy certain rights. The landlord has the right of temporary recovery of possession, to increase the rent, to evict a tenant, to be advised of necessary repairs and so on. The rights of tenants are primarily spoken of in the Residential Tenancies Act, and the Landlord and Tenant Acts 1967 to 1994.

All you need to know about cheque bounce

ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT CHEQUE BOUNCECheque bounce is one of the most common problem people face these days. What is cheque bounce? When does cheque bounce happens? What are the reasons for cheque bounce? How to deal with that? These are the common queries people have regarding cheque bounce. In this blog, I shall discuss all the topics related to cheque bounce and how to deal with that.WHAT IS CHEQUE BOUNCE?Before that we need to know what is actually a cheque? A cheque is basically a bill of exchange drawn upon a designated banker which is payable only when it is demanded by the applicant. Cheque bounce which is also known as dishonour of cheque is a basically failure of payment by the drawer towards the drawee or say it is an unpaid cheque returned back by the bank due to some or the other reasons.WHAT ARE THE REASONS FOR CHEQUE BOUNCE?There are various reasons a cheque can bounce. Following are the reasons for cheque bounce:-·      The signature on the cheque and the signature on the official documents like passbook, etc are different.·      Overwriting on the cheque can also be a problem if it is clearly visible.·      Cheque presented after the expiry of time period i.e. 3 months·      By any chance the bank account has been closed by the account holder or by the bank itself.·      Opening balance is insufficient·      Insufficient funds in the account of the drawer.·      The payment has been stopped by the drawer himself·      Inconsistency in the figures written on the cheque.·      Inconsistency in the amount number on the cheque.·      If the stamp of the company presenting the cheque is missing.·      In case the cheque is presented from a joint account and the signature of any of the account holder is missing.·      Any of the person i.e. the drawer or the drawee has died.·      By any chance the drawer has turned insolvent.·      Signs of insanity found in the drawer.·      Any alterations found in the cheque.·      Cheque issued against the rules of trust.·      The bank doubts the authenticity of the cheque.·      The cheque has been presented at the wrong branch by the drawee.·      The amount mentioned in the cheque crosses the limit of the cheque overdraft.Thus, above mentioned are the situations where a cheque issued can bounce due to some minor problems and hence can create a problem for both the drawer and the drawee.Well, every problem comes with a solution. Thereby we will discuss about the solutions and how to deal with cheque bounce cases:-CHEQUE BOUNCE CASE- WHAT AND HOW TO DEAL WITH THE PROBLEM?According to Section 138 of the Negotiable Instrument Act, 1881 cheque bounce is a criminal offence. Nevertheless, the aggrieved party in such cases can file both the criminal as well as a civil suit against the accused.Below mentioned are the actions one can take for a cheque bounce case:-·      Resubmission of the ChequeAfter being aware of the bounced cheque, the issuer of the cheque gets another chance to correct the error which caused the cheque bounce and can ask the payee to resubmit the cheque for clearance provided it is done within the time frame which is 3 months from the date of cheque bounce.·      Demand NoticeBy any chance if the cheque happens to bounce for the second time the recipient of the cheque opts to send a demand notice to the issuer of the cheque asking to transfer the required amount within the next 15 days. Also, the demand notice is sent within 30 days of receiving the notice of bounced cheque from the bank. ·      Filing a ComplaintEven after sending a demand notice there is no response from the issuer of the cheque then the drawee can file a complaint before the court within 30 days. You can also file a case after 30 days if you can provide a reasonable justification for the delay and the magistrate finds the reason justifiable enough. Keep in mind the court must be situated in a location where the cheque was presented or returned by the bank.The case can be filed under Section 138 of the Negotiable Instrument Act, making sure that the cheque issued as a gift cannot be covered by under such section.Moreover, for seeking remedies the recipient of bounced cheques can also file a complaint about cheating under Section 420 of the Indian Penal Code.·      Civil ComplaintIf filed a complaint regarding bounced cheques the issuer gets the punishment in terms of jail but in most cases does not let the recipient get his dues. Thus, it is advisable for the recipient if the bounced cheque to file a separate civil suit for the recovery of the amount he is supposed to get.PUNISHMENT AND PENALTYAfter receiving the complaint along with relevant papers and affidavit the court shall issue summons and hear the matter. If found guilty then the defaulter shall be punished with imprisonment for a term of two years or more or monetary penalty which can be twice the amount of the cheque or both. Also, the bank has the right to cease the cheque book facilities and close the account for repeated offences of cheque bounce. Consult Lawyer for Cheque Bounce Matter

How is an NGO, a Trust and a Foundation Different?

From a legal standpoint, there is hardly any difference. An NGO or a Foundation cannot be registered. The legal viewpoint is that an NGO has one of three entities; its either a Public Trust or a Society or a not-for-profit organization or foundation. Under the Income Tax Act, all 3 entities are tax-exempt entities.Both trust and society alike are two types of a non-profit or non-government organization in India. Therefore if anyone intends on doing social work and for this purpose needs a legal entity, then either a trust or a society can be registered. One can also register a company under section 25 but in most cases, a registered is a norm or society for benevolent work.Trust is a comparatively simpler entity and can be easily registered and operated. Such organizations are fundamentally rooted in trust. Donations are purely based on trust that the donated funds would be fully utilized to serve the purpose mentioned in one’s trust deed. Trustees do not owe any explanation to anyone other than the Charity Commissioner and the applicable laws. Any tax breaks u/s 80g and 12a can be revoked if trustees do not abide by the rules, laws, and regulations of the Income Tax department. Analyzing NGO Registration people seem to think that even with lack of funds if NGO registration is done then their goals and objectives can be attained. Truth is as quickly as some NGOs are being registered they are also winding up quickly or even leaving it in the middle. If NGOs are registered with the intention or mindset of obtaining external grants and donations then such NGOs would not be sustainable in the long run. A company donating a chunk of funds to charity on a regular basis, then in such cases an NGO can be registered with enhanced sustainability planning.  In India, there are many registered NGOs only on paper and only about a little over half of NGOs are actually working for the betterment of society. NGOs can be formed in no time at all. However, when project funds from local government schemes or contributions from foreign countries are on hold indefinitely then the entire NGO comes to a screeching halt. Rather than looking for easier options for forming an NGO, for NGO registration its imperative to analyze the actual requirement and the strength to form, manage and maintain such NGO is far more important.Call 7604047601 for consultation with a registered expert Trust and Society NGO lawyers on Vidhikarya.
