What is the procedure to evict a tenant before the expiry of a lease agreement?

0

A tenant should ideally be served with an eviction notice terminating the lease agreement. The notice must accord reasonable time to the tenant to look for an alternate residence and then vacate the premises.

If, however, the tenant refuses to vacate, the landlord may have to resort to filing an eviction suit in court. The rental laws in India lay down grounds of eviction – intentional non-payment of rent, subletting to third party, using premises for unlawful purposes, loss of property value due to acts of tenant, complaints of nuisance by neighbours, owner’s need of the property for own occupation, renovation, sale, demolition etc.
