Tenants and landlords simply present their clauses to the lawyer who, in turn, processes the stamp paper and registration requirements. While this method is still favored by many, it is a fact that people today do not have time to prepare an agreement in this way. It is also complicated by the fact that the lawyer will collect a tax that he/she deems fair.

These documents save you time and a lot of money.
Registering a document is a way to deter fraud and potential counterfeiting. It is also proof that the people mentioned in the document are the ones who actually signed the document. And most importantly, all the details of the property are displayed in the document when a document is saved. Disputes, business and prior title to the property are made public when a lease is registered. 11-month lease agreement: This is the most used contract format in the whole country. The duration of this rental agreement is 11 months at the end of which both parties have the freedom to renew / terminate the contract. Registration is ignored because the term is less than one year and rental agreements require the tenant to pay a fixed monthly rent to the lessor. The termination of the registered rental deed is mandatory at the end of the rental agreement. Otherwise, the certificate of hardship issued by the registration service contains the indication of the rental contract, which is a burden that may lead to undesirable complications.

However, the registration authorities claim that 2% of the total lease amount is collected as a registration fee for the delivery of the rental agreement. This is unjustified. We had already paid the 2% fee when the contract was registered. All that remains is to terminate the agreement. There is no money transaction, but the authorities are demanding such a large amount for the handover of the lease.
The reporting authorities require stamp duty not for the assigning part of the lease, but for the total amount of the documents. . . .
