Is tenant a consumer?


Can a tenant be termed a consumer and approach the Consumer Forum for the redressal of his grievances against the Landlord?

The rental premises is in shambles and the Landlord neither arranges for necessary repairs nor permits the tenant to carry out the repairs, to make the rented premises tenantable, at his own expenses. The BMC authorities have given their no-objection for the repairs. The repairs do not require any additions or alterations in the premises.

Please inform me the legal position.

Thanks in advance,

    Why dont you go ahead with the repairs and deduct the expenses from the rent payable? I know I have not answered your question but a lot of Landlords are as it is harassed by their tenants and your question will open up another ticklish front.

Go to the court in your area and you can get order for repairs under rent control act of your state.


You will need an advocate who handled similar matters.


An enterprising advcate can also help you to file criminal cases against such obstructing landlorad.
