No receipts provided by Landlord

I have been living in a rented flat in an AWHO residential complex since 24-June-2010.

I have paid the Security Deposit, Rent and Maintenance Fees by cheques.

The landlord has never provided a receipt.

Recently, I reminded the landlord that I need the Receipts. He asked me to type up the material.

I typed up two statements, one for the Rent (and Security Deposit) and the other for the Maintenance Fees, and sent them to him on 29 March, 2011.

I have not yet received the signed statements.

So yesterday I sent him an email, with the letter and statements attached, and requested that he send the duly signed statements at the earliest convenience.

I anticipate that the Society will create trouble regarding the Maintenance Fees.

If the landlord does not cooperate, what is my best recourse?

I intend to vacate the flat sometime in the very near future.

BTW, all cheques issued to the landlord, were encashed, as per my bank passbook.

Thank You.

ask your land lord to give receipts. If failed, send a legal notice for the same

U give a rent by checque so don't worry if he can not give receipt u give a application for that and attach a bank statement. Statement is the important evidence.

Thank you Shri Aravinthan, but I would like to minimize bad relations, so I would not like to resort to Legal Notices, unless unavoidable.

Thank you Shri Bharatkumar.

I was considering two options

1) A Bank Statement (duly stamped and attested by the Bank)

2) Requesting the Bank to verify my Statements for payment of Security Deposit, Rent & Maintenance Fee, and cerify that the details mentioned are correct.

The Statements prepared by me, are fairly detailed, and contain the Cheque Number,  Date and Amount for each transaction.
