My landlord is not accepting rent since last 8 years. Now he is insisting on getting the name transferred from ex tenant to my name, he's asking for hefty transfer fee. Though i am staying in the property for more than 15 years, i had paid the rent from 2007 to 2015. Now a new land has acquired the property from trust through attornment. And has not sent a single letter informing that he has acquired the property. Though the trust is not registered in charity commissioner. He is just forcing to get my house transferred in my name

It can be taken on rent for 21 years only. If the tenancy exceeds the period, it requires court permission.
