Inheritence of tenancy right under maharashtra rent control

Dear Advisors, Tenant A with his son B were residing in pagdi system building and getting rent receipt in the name of tenant A since the year 1960 from the landlord.  In the year January 2001, tenant A died and son B paid rent for February 2001 and got receipt from the landlord.  In the march month of 2001,  the son B went to the landlord and requested to put son B’s name in the rent receipt after deleting Tenant A’s name as tenant A has been expired.  Further son B agreed to pay any below table money to the landlord for change of name.  The landlord refused to accept any money and refused to change the name on receipt and told son B to vacate the premise and told to son B that tenancy with son B’s father is over on his death and no question to inherit the tenancy right and landlord went to court.  Now please inform me whether landlord is right in his action and would get the possession of room and evict son B under Maharashtra rent control act 1999 or any other law or son B would get his father’s tenancy right in inheritance under Maharashtra rent control act 1999 or Hindu succession act or any other act?


B will definetly get his rights as a legal heir if he was residing with A at the time of his death.If you have written to the LL to transmit the rent receipt in the name of B,being the only legal heir and if the LL has not transmitted the rent receipt in the name of B,iand is stillcontinuing collecting rent,then as per law u r the deemed  tenants.Even otherwise u r protect under the law.Just appoint good lawyer tp present your side.
