Hi, when there is no agreement in writing he is not liable to pay the damages caused due to normal wear and tear.

2. But some damages caused by the tenant which is done by his usage of the premises then he is liable to pay the damages.

1) The tenant being in occupation of the premises will be liable to loss/damage to the property as it can be alleged that the occupation is illegal and the damage was deliberate.

2) Therefore it would be advisable to settle the matter amicably.

1. Verbal agreement is also valid agreement if its existance can be proved,

2. If it can not be proved that there was no agreement, be it verbal or written, between the land lord and the Occupier, then he/she can claim that he/she was not a Tenant but was licensed to live therein,

3. In the above event he need not pay for any damage of the building caused during ordinary use of the building.
