Renting your home, apartment or condo can be trickier when you get a list of do’s and don’ts from tenants. It gets more difficult to manage when in your rented space, despite multiple responsibilities, you get restrictions. We have covered a list of rights for all landlords to help you become aware of your rights on a rented property that you ‘truly’ own. • Eviction of Tenant: As mentioned in the Draft Model Tenancy Act 2015, landlords can evict a tenant when the latter breaches rental agreement, sub-lets the rented premises or a part of it without owner’s permission, pays no rent for a specific time, misuses the property or conducts illegal activities in the premises of the property. • Right to Possession: In case landlord deems the repairs in accommodation necessary (that cannot be done without vacating the space), he/she holds the right to evict the tenant (and temporary possess the property) till property’s restoration to safe condition. • Hiking the Rent: Landlords hold the right to raise the rent periodically as per the regulations given in your lease agreement. They have an upper hand in charging the amount of rent from the tenant as given in the Draft Model Tenancy Act. • Habitable premises: Every property owner should maintain the property in the condition to meet the minimum accommodation standards and provide essential supplies to the tenant. • Tenancy Terms: Landlords are free to decide the terms of tenancy that might have some inclusions as well as restrictions for the tenants like pets allowed, no smoking in premises, only vegetarian food allowed etc. These terms can be changed from month to month as per the interest of the land owner. • Switching to No Rental: It is completely landlord’s decision to switch his rental property to no rental property and even sell it, as it suits him/her. Tenants should be allowed to stay at the property till the lease expiration. On landlords’ decision of keeping property no longer on rent, they are free to move themselves or their family members to the property that they own. Being well-aware of these rights will definitely help landlords to know their limits and manage their rental property peacefully and perfectly.
