  1. I want to give my dukan(shop) for 11 month period on rent basis can you help me please………

  2. I am about let my shop for rent. Can provide my bank account number on agreement to diposit rent.

    1. Yes, of course you can mention the bank account number.

      Even better approach would be to have deposit cards issued for your bank account so that every time your tenants will deposit money using that card which will be linked to your bank account. This way you will avoid sharing your bank account numbers with your tenants.

  3. I want to take shop from local government department on lease for life, how I shall make such lease agreement. Please guide me…

    Stamp paper amount for lease agreement
    If the Lease agreement should be registered with Sub Registrar office

    1. Usually the cancellation terms would be specified in the initial agreement itself. Generally it is specified as that either parties should have notified other party in advance by 1 or 2 months for cancellation of the rental agreement.
