Month to month lease agreements provide the tenant and the landlord with the opportunity of great flexibility in terms of the lease agreement.
The relationship between the landlord and the tenant is not always a peaceful one. There are instances where the landlord may attempt to intimidate the tenant or force him to move out. Sometimes, the landlord may perform certain acts in order to disrupt the peaceful enjoyment of the property by the tenant.
When the tenancy comes to an end, the tenant is entitled to get his or her security deposit from the landlord. However, there may be some dues or arrears incurred by the tenant during the period of the tenancy.
A tenancy may commence from a stipulated date stated in the rent agreement and may start with the landlord giving the keys to the tenant and the tenant moving into the rental property and premises with his or her possessions.
This law has been drafted by the Indian Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs and aims to provide adequate and affordable rental housing in the country.
