inform tenant in writing that you are the new landlord as father has executed gift deed in your favour . to pay rent on time . mention the rent arrears that are outstanding . call upon him to make payment of rent arrears within 15 days of issue of legal notice . also call upon him to vacate the premises . file suit for eviction . he will come forward for settlement
Issue a legal notice through your lawyer to the tenant telling for recovering the arrears of rents. If he does not pay the arrears within 15 days then file a case for removal of tenant. You are now the legal owner of this property and thus have all the legal rights to remove the tenant in accordance with the law. He will accede to your demand in order to obviate the risk of his removal from the property. .
