tenants right in the property
Dear Sir I have been living in an asbestos shaded house constructed at my own cost on first floor for past 20 years. I had paid 40000 in advance and RS 100/- was finalized as rent. I don’t have any lease/agreement for the rented house as Landlord was very close to our family so it was just verbal promise. I have paid rent for first 3 months but haven’t received any receipt and thereafter no one came to take the rent. Now the landlord has died and his son has sold the property to some builder, who is about to build a multi-storied building and asking us to vacate the place and saying my stay is illegal .Please suggest me what rights do I have. Note: I have electricity bill in my name and all my identity proof (ration card, passport, voter card)are of that address only .
- the advance money was paid,
- landlord received the rent for 3 months and,
- The tenant (you) have the other required receipts to prove its validity.
