My father owns property (three houses, all in one site) in Bangalore. We live in one house and have rented out the other two houses. My father has three children, all of whom are now married, and he wishes to gift one house to each of his children.
We approached both our tenants to vacate as we require the houses for personal use. However, one of my tenants is refusing to vacate. He has been living here for the past 10 years. One mistake we made here, in my opinion, is that there is no written agreement that we asked them to sign. In the recent past, we wanted him to sign an agreement, but he kept putting it off saying he will be leaving shortly. It has now been well over two years, and he is still refusing to vacate!!
We are hesitant to approach lawyers as many people tell us it will take a really long time (maybe a few years!!) if we go thro' the legal route. We approached the police who say they can help only if there is a court order.
I request people who visit this forum to help me with this problem. What should I do to ensure we evict these people from our property? We need the houses for our personal use. Please note that we live in Bangalore.
