Dear querist,

 

Mere paying electricity bill will not help him to change ownership. Assuming owner has entered into rental agreement with the tenant.

NOT AT ALL - TENANT REMAINS ALWAYS A TENANT WITHOUT PREJUDICE. Even the tenant can change the meter in his name and pay the electricity bill for his consumption. That does not mean he holds the property in his name and claim ownership.Relation between landlord and tenant exist

who makes a tenancy agreement nowadays? it should be a leave and license agreement.
yes agreed that tenant cannot own the rented premises nor can he sublet. but at the same time tenancy rights are different from leave and license, and it's difficult to evict a tenant.
I know someone who had been a tenant for 40 yrs, he couldn't be evicted by any court, later he transferred his tenancy rights to a builder for a hefty amount. so be careful,

by paying bills for the property, you surely are creating a bonafide occupant. this is used as arguments in the court against the landlord.

of it's a leave and license agreement, NEVER use words such as RENT, use compensation. never use words TENANT, use licensee and for LANDLORD use licensor.
