This query is : Resolved
we have a rented building for last more than fifty years.we were paying rent regularly.but for last almost five to six years landlord not accepting the rent.My father sent the rent by money order but the landlord refused to accept it.there after we tried to give it personaly and asked the reason for not accepting the rent but he didnot reply satisfactorily.In this building we are running a lodging and boarding hotel.my father was looking after the same.My father expired two years back,now my two brothers are looking after the same.five years back we paid the rent for a year but the land lord did not give the receipt.my father asked for it so many times.landlord assured to give the receipt but didnot .landlord wanted to evacuate the building for commercial purpose as the property is situated at prime location.My query is that can landlord evacuate the property from us ? what steps should we take in this matter since my father is no more now? we are ready to pay rent of entire unpaid period.
