The rental agreement should contain the names and addresses of the lessor and tenant, the terms of the lease, the duration of the lease, the rent and the amount of the deposit, the restrictions for both parties, the conditions for termination of the contract, the conditions for renewal and details of who should bear other costs such as maintenance costs, repairs, etc. In some countries where the e-stamp is available for rental contracts, you do not need to buy the stamp paper physically. You can register on the website of Stock Holding Corporation of India Ltd (SHCIL) and check that the state in which you reside offers this possibility. Currently, Assam, Gujarat, Himachal Pradesh, Karnataka, Maharashtra, Delhi-NCR, Tamil Nadu, Uttarakhand and Uttar Pradesh allow e-stamping of rental contracts. The bill also provides that tenants who extend their stay in rented accommodation, as mentioned in the agreement, are required to pay double the amount of rent for the first two months and four times the rent in the following months. It is often a practice among people to create rental contracts on stamp paper with minimum values like Rs.20/-or 50/-or 100/- etc. This saves money on paying the actual stamp duty imposed by the government. The difference between public and minimum royalties is generally very small. As long as there is no dispute between landlord and tenant, it goes well. Let`s take an example: to avoid the payment of these fees, many landlords and tenants agree to each other not to register contracts. .
