Vacating the rental flat

(Querist) 08 July 2009 This query is : Resolved 
We have moved into a rented house in May09. It has been just two months and our owner has served us with a one month notice (as per a clause in the leave and licence agreement) to vacate as the owner is planning to move back in the house. We have made a lot of expenses while moving here just two months back, which include movers & packers, brokerage plus additional expenses like getting the address changes done for gas connection, setting up the cable connection, carpenter work, a/c installation, etc. The total of all our costs would amount to a minimum of 25k. Although the agreement does mention a one month notice and hence the owners are right in their place, are we entitled to ask them for any compensation as we will have to make all the above expenses again. We are dire need of some advice in this regard, would appreciate response asap. Thanks

Dear Uravi,

You cannot claim that expenses done for your self. But you have a absoulte right of enjoy that property for the period specefied in the said leave and licence agreement. Please send a reply notice to him with in the agreement period we unable to vacate that premises. If he filed a case against you then you can constest in the case. you have good merit in the case.

If one month notice clause is there, you have no voice. But you may stay there illegally. At the same time, if the landlord makes tamasha or sends gunda persons or gives threats or adopts other illegal methods, you should be able to counter. otherwise it is better to vacate.
