Dear Sir / madam,
First of all my apology if I posted under wrong category.
I was confused and wanted to know if a licensee with registered leave and license agreement is protected under Maharashtra Rent Control act 1999? Or is rent agreement (tenancy) different than leave and license? Can licensee also called a tenant or are they both different as per the act? As per my understanding as a lay man, licensee is paying a license fees and tenant is paying rent?
A licensee, holding the residential premises under a registered Leave & License document, is not protected under Maharshtra Rent Control Act 1999. Whereas as a Tenant occupies a residential premises under a registered Tenancy Agreement and is duly protected under Maharshtra Rent Control Act 1999.
Thank you for your reply.
For agreements for commercial office space, I have seen only leave and license. Rather most people go for leave and license only. At various places in the act, its written "licensee or the tenant" or "licensee". If it does not apply for leave and license, then what is the purpose of such mentions?
