Rental agreement is actually a contract between two parties. One is the owner of a property and the other one is the tenant, when he wants to have possession of the owner’s property for a certain period of time. A rental agreement is also called a rent deed or lease deed. The agreement contains the details of the property, the owner’s name and the tenant’s name, the term of the rent or lease and the monetary amount of the rent for the said period of time.
Usually most of the agreements are signed for 11 months in order to avoid stamp duty and other charges. As per the registration act, 1908 the registration of a lease agreement is essential in case of the lease term is more than 12 months. Once the agreement is registered, stamp duty and registration fee have to be paid for the same. For example, in Delhi, for a lease up to 5 years, the stamp paper value is 2% of the average annual rent. If a security deposit is a part of it, then add a fee of Rs 100. For a lease of more than 5 years and less than 10 years, the cost is 3% of the annual average rent. For a lease of more than 10 years and less than 20 years, the cost is 6% of the average annual rent. The stamp paper can be made under the name of the tenant or the landlord.
