My tenant wants to vacate my flat within two days. I have an agreement which is expired in Nov-2010 that contains a clause / terms & condition of tenant has to give two months notice to vacate. My tenant is a family husband,wife and daughter they have been living in my flat for the past three years till now.
The reason for vacating the house given by tenant (wife) is that her husband (tenant) aged 55 years fled with another lady and she wants to relocate to different area/city.
The advance amount Rs.35,000/=, I have received from the tenant (husband) and expired agreement also signed by the husband only. However, the monthly rent cheque that I receive is from the tenant (wife). Today, tenant (wife) is asking me to refund the advance amount.
Could one of you advice me what I should under this circumstances
1. Can I refund the advance amount to the tenant (wife) instead of the husband who is not in town.
2. Though agreement is expired, Can I enfore the tenant to pay for the two months rent if not atleast one month rent.
3. Any other steps that I should take to protect legally
