Why is a Rent Agreement necessary?

It is important to have a rent agreement in place to take care of any disputes that may arise between landlord and tenant, due to varied reasons like:

  • Tenant subletting the Property
  • Landlord increasing rent without prior notice
  • Tenant setting up business in the house premises
  • Landlord denying returning the security deposit
  • Tenant damaging the property

Apart from a few of the aforementioned suggestions, there are numerous other disagreements that could occur while tenants are residing in the property. A formal rental agreement that has been approved by the government must be in place in order to handle all such conflicts in advance. The terms and conditions that were agreed upon between the landlord and tenant when renting a property are evidenced by a rent agreement.
