Asked in Property Law from Mumbai, Maharashtra
Onus is upon you to informed them regarding the renewal of your agreement if there is no specific clause in agreement regarding the renewal of the agreement.
Advocate, New Delhi
1) in case you have renewed your leave and licensee agreement with licensee you can intimate BMC if you so desire
2) BMC receives information of all registered leave and licence agreements from the registration department
What does the agreement relate to?
If you have to renew the agreement, it becomes your duty to communicate to the authorities about it and get it renewed subsequent to which the applicable taxes are to be paid.
If this is not done from your side, the danger of imposing the late fee and penalty are brighter when it becomes late at a later date.
you do inform the municipal corporation regarding new agreement because whenever a right is accrued regarding the property then it should be intimated to the concerned authority.
