Lease Deed - Residential

Lease Deed - Residential​

Since home ownership may sometimes be inconvenient or unaffordable, a majority of the migrant working population in India’s major cities live in rented homes. For this, the tenant signs a rent agreement with the landlord, which includes the terms and conditions that shall be binding on both the parties.

Types of Agreements

11-Month Rental Agreement – Typically used in most rental transactions, the 11-month rental agreement is one of the most commonly used rental agreements throughout the country. The term of the lease is 11 months following which both parties can choose to either renew it or end it. Registration and notarization are skipped most of times as the term is less than a year. Long Term Lease – Signed commonly for residential purposes, long term leases have durations in years. They involve large sums of money to be paid upfront and this sum is often returned to the tenant at the end of term. They are less frequently used as compared to the 11-month rental agreement. Commercial Lease – Signed exclusively for business deals, commercial leases involve large sums of money and long periods of duration. Commercial leases have an agreement format that is quite different from that of residential rental agreements. They do not have a standard format as needs and clauses vary with the type of business.
