Tenant did illegal civil work
Well i am from Mumbai and i need some legal advice. We have rented our raw house to a tenant for lease of 5 years. Now it has been 2 and half year the tenant have done lot of structural and civil changes on our property without our permission which is against the terms of our agreement which is registered. He pays rent on time.
Even after several meeting he still keep on doing changes on our property. We decided to vacant him so we meet him but he denied to vacant the property and asking money for the expenses he have done on our property which is without our permission as its clearly mentioned in our agreement that the tenant cant make any structural or civil changes.
We hired a high court lawyer who circulated a Legal notice to vacant our property but the tenant didnt gave any reply to our notice. Following we approached local police station through which we called up the tenant and set a meeting in front of the PSI, conclusion of the meeting was that we should dismiss the old agreement and make 11 months agreement and allow tenant to stay for the renaming time period which is left that is 2 and half years of 5 years as per last agreement than the tenant wont ask for money what he have spend but if we want to vacant our property right now we have to pay the amount he have spend on our property.
We dont want this tenant anymore. So can anyone suggest us how to remove him as i have heard that i cant use illegal force to vacant him and if we go to fight in court the case may run upto to 6 month, 1 year , 5 yrs , 10 years or even 20 years.
We are a middle class family who have struggled hard to make this property and now we are really having sleepless nights due to this tenant issue.
Please anyone suggest us how to get our property vacant as soon as possible.
