lease agreement

 well my friend has rented a shop . He has a lease agreement made on a RS 200 stamp paper. The owner says that he wants to keep the original papers and has asked him to keep the xerox after gettin it sealed by notary . 

He is concerned that in case he doesnt have orginal papers , wat measure can he take to be on the safe side . 

Can he use the xerox of the lease agreement . 

Any help is welcome

Your friend can take the signature of the owner on the xerox copy. And also, your friend can take a letter from the owner that he is having the original copy of the deed.

Usually original lease deed will be with the tenants and xerox copy will be with the tenant. If your friend takes signature of the owner on every page of the xerox copy saying that it is a certified true copy, then, it will be as good as original copy, It will be considered that two copies of originals are made at the same time.

Sorry.. there is a mistake.. usually originals will be with the tenant and xerox copy will be with the owner...

Your friend can have the reciept for the money advanced to the owner if the owner insists to have originals with him.
