A rental and licensing agreement is known to be comfortable for the landlord compared to the benefits it offers to the tenant. However, because they both have the right content of the clauses, they can turn on each other. We hope, with the help of the above knowledge, it will help each of you to design the right deal with less or no friction! MAHARASHTRA GOVERNMENT Thursday, July 8, 2000 Part 4 A REVENUE and Forest Department Mantralaya, Mumbai 400,032, dated June 8, 2000 Notification The Registration Act, 1908. No. RGN.2000/2120/CR-592/M-1- In the exercise of the powers conferred by paragraphs 78 and 79 of the Registration Act, 1908 (XVI 1908), in its application to the State of Maharashtra, read with subsection (1) of Section 55 of the Mahartra Rent Act Control, 1999 (Mah. 18th of 2000), the government of Maharashtra amended the ROYALty TABLEAU, which was established under Section 78 and published under the government`s note, Ministry of Taxation No. 2000, effective in 2000. Mr. RGN. 1558/67731-N, dated 17 July 1961, as requested in section 79, namely: in the royalty table above, the following article is interested in Article III, namely; « III A For the registration of a document of the leave and licensing agreement, if this document relates to the property; A borders; Municipal Corporation 1000 In any other area 500 ₹UIVANTE On behalf of the Governor of Maharashtra, P. G.
CHHATRE Under Secretary to Government In accordance with Section 17 of the Indian Registration Act, applicable to all of India, any real estate lease agreement must be registered from year to year or for a period of more than one year. Therefore, unless otherwise required by national law, any leave and licence contract must be registered for a period of 12 months or more. The registration fee for a rental contract in Maharashtra, depends on the location of the rental. The registration fee is Rs 1,000 if the property is below an urban corporate area and it is 500 aff. if this is the case in a rural area. In the absence of a contrary agreement, the tenant bears the costs of stamp duty and registration. There is a slight difference in the nature of the terms used for a holiday and licensing agreement, as opposed to a rental agreement. As noted above, a licensee can be translated in bulk into the lessor and a licensee to a tenant. The reason for using the term « licence » is therefore obvious, since the owner of the property receives a « licence to stay » for a predetermined period of time. However, for Maharashtra, the law has been strengthened and, in accordance with section 55 of the Maharashtra Rent Control Act 1999, any lease or leave and licence agreement must be written and the same must be registered in a mandatory manner, regardless of the length of the lease.
