I have a tenant who is residing since more than 50 years in my property in Maharashtra under pagdi system. He owns a house which is in his name and his sons are living there. My questions are: 1) Can I file a case on him to vacant my property as he owns his own property 2) If I file a case how much time it will take for the case to sort out? 3) do I need to pay any compensation or any amount of money to him 4) what are the chances that the case will be in my favour
1. You can file a case for eviction only if the tenant has acted in contravention of the terms of Maharashtra Rent Control Act.
2. The time taken for an eviction case can not be predicted.
3. You don't have to pay any compensation if the eviction case is decided in your favour.
4. Your chances will depend on the evidences you submit.
It will be prudent to settle the matter mutually.
