I rented a small 550sqft 2BHK flat in chennai suburban. I'm staying in this flat since Apr2006. I'm paying Rs.5800 as rent and Rs.1000 for water and Rs.350 for maintenance. I've deposited Rs.35,000 as advance. Altogether I'm paying Rs.7500/month for a small flat. Now the landlord is again increasing the rent by Rs.600. I asked him the reason for increasing the rent and I highlighted him the lack of basic amenities in the flat and asked him to fix them. He is not ready to fix the problems and no maintenance work was done in that flat so far. Other people in my apartment complex pay only Rs.5000 as rent for the same size flat. I mentioned this also to him and asked him for a small increase. But he is not ready to consider my request and asking me to vacate the flat immediately. Right now I'm out of India and only my 50 years old mother (my father expired 10 years back) and my sister are staying in that flat. My sister delivered a baby just few week back and she got operated. I highlighted all my families health problems and requested him more time to vacate. Since I'm out of country, I thought of find smooth solution with him and I agreed to pay whatever rent he is asking me and requested him to give me six more months time to vacate the flat. But he is not even paying attention to my requests and he is forcing me to vacate the flat immediately. I regularly deposit the rent before 5th of every month to his bank account. We never executed any lease agreement and it was a mutual understanding between us. I requested him many times to give me more time to vacate the flat because I'm out of country and because of my family health reasons. But he is still forcing me to vacate. I'm fearing that he may create more problem to my family. Since my mother and sister are alone there, no one is there to help them out. Can you please advise me further course of action on this regard?
