current Rent amount : 6500/-
1. unregistered lease deed for 5 years.
2. unregistered GPA from my friend from her sister
Issue legal notice thru advocate wait for reply ,if they deny file suit for recovery of rent ,and also for eviction as the ownership has passed to lrs.as lease deed is unregistered you have to pay duty penalty,
1. Civil Court Legal Action CANNOT be initiated for recovery of any Rent /Lease arrears because the Lease Deed is not properly Stamp Duty paid and Not registered. However you may initiate Eviction Proceedings against the Tenant.
2. You can ALSO initiate Private Criminal Proceedings in a local Magistrates Court, by following due procedures of Law.
Since the lease agreement is unregistered, it will not be considered valid, because every lease agreement with the time period of over 1 year is to be compulsorily registered at a sub registrar office, under registration act, 1908.
Regarding the tenant, you can issue a legal notice with all details of the improper rent payment, and ask the tenant to vacate the premises immediately or within a period of 15-30 days, as you see fit.
If the tenant doesn't reply or act accordingly to the legal notice, you can file a suit under Provisions of Rent act, for non payment of rent.
Hope this helped!
