We purchased a flat from an agent fews years back but never got the possession to it as the person who was living in the house never did vacate it. This person to us was knows as the "tenant" and would leave as soon as we pay money for the flat. That did not happen.
The person actually was the first buyer but failed to pay the total amount of the flat for 8-10 months. They never registered a lease or sale of flat agreement, there is no legal document registered for this deal.
We then bought the flat and now have the legal agreement on our name but we did not get the possession as this person is not ready to vacate even after all his money was returned by the agent. (Bank proof)
Along with the owner, we had then field a case in court about 3 years ago. All this time the person has failed to give a reply and hence court had asked him to pay security deposit and monthly rent for all the past and present months. He did not pay the money for almost 9 months untill now when he refused to submit his flat possession to court receiver. After that he has delayed the limit for some days and then moved a motion and paid the money.
What I understand is that now the interim relief is over and we have not got a date for the case since last 2 months. After consulting few more laywers, they say now it will take 5 - 10 yrs more to get some judgment on this issue.
Can someone throw some insights or any advice how to tackle this?
