Maharashtra rent acts 1999 problems


Maharashtra rent act 1999 gives permission to the deceased tenant’s heir to reside in the premises but it is easily challenged by false criminal complaints and harassments to the tenants by the owner. The Rent Act is a civil case and does not help in the matter of Criminal Cases. The two are different and are dealt in different courts. 

The tenants who are poor and have to earn daily hand to mouth leaving, such false police cases filed by the owner is total harassment and the police too helps this villagers who are land developers and politicians this is normal beyond Mumbai limits and in Thane Districts. Aim from Dombivli – West. 

Tenant can file contempt of court in the civil court as suggested by one of the lawyer but this again requires solid proof or other tenants from the same building standing together. But that is not possible the other tenants do not want to take the wrath of the owner and instead help the owner in giving signatures against the tenant who approaches court. 

The expenses of Advocates and Dates and long proceedings of court without any justice the tenants are at the mercy of law and the building owners do not want to repair and renovate the buildings finally resulting to death and disaster in many places of Mumbai and Thane Districts collapse of buildings. 

Hope the law makers try to help these poor tenants who are staying in such old and isolated buildings for years and decades only waiting to die.
