Increment in Monthly Rent for renewal of 11 month Lease

Dear Sir,

Is there any ceiling/guideline with regard to increment in monthly rent, on extension of a 11 month Residential Lease ?

Often, the notice period specified in a 11 month lease deed,  is 1 month. Can that period be of another duration, mutually agreed upon by the Lessor & Lessee ?

Is there such a thing as a lock-in period with regard to a residential  lease deed ?

The Registration Act 1902 contains the provisions related to registration of documents. The registration of any document needs to be done as per these statutory requirements. The statute has provisions relating to registration of all property documents. It specifies the documents that are compulsorily registrable and those that are not compulsorily registrable. Lease deed for less than one year need not to be register. That's why generally to avoid registration of lees/rent deed its duration remain less than one year. There is no such lock-in period with regard to a residential lease deed.  As far as ceiling/guideline with regard to increment in monthly rent, you have to gone through local rent control act. I.e. in The state of Rajasthan increment in rent can't be more than 5% per year.
