If a person is not paying rent willfully after the land lord asks for rent is liable under Tamilnadu ( Lease and Rent Control ) Act. Rent Control Law Willful Default - Burden of proof : Once tenant admits default he has to prove that it was not willful.

In a case the Landlord living in same building and yet tenant sent money order representing rent for 3 months with knowledge that landlord was away to attend funeral of his mother-in-law .
