Dear Sir, My sister and myself own and let out a shop portion. I am only signing rent receipt everymonth for 6 years till now. The tenant was a chronic defaulter from 2003. I filed an willful default case against him leaving my sister. Could you please advice me for the further steps.
Thanks for your reply. Could you please clarify me whether I have to Get consent letter from her/ Include her as a joint petitioner.

No. You need not implead your sister if you have approached a rent controller. any co-owner can file a suit of eviction. Otherwise too, you collecting rent, are a landlord in terms of a rent control act.
Thanks for the reply I have filed rent receipt from 2002 which was signed by me and Excel sheet showing the number of months defaulted from 2002 to till date as evidence in the suit. Moreover, he has cleared all the due(rent)only after receiving court summon. Is it enough to evict this respondant. Could you please clarify me.
