Whether you are a landlord or a tenant, you sure to be familiar with the need to register a rent agreement. This legally-binding document gives you the right to receive rent or live in a rented home, depending on whether you are a landlord or a tenant. Further, it states the conditions of the agreement and serves as proof of a mutual agreement between the two parties. Thus, knowing how to get the rent agreement registered is important. Here’s all you need to know about this formality.

Documents required to register a rent agreement

The number of documents required for this purpose are minimal. Typically, the landlord and tenant must have 2 passport-size photographs each, along with identity proof. Besides this, both parties are to submit their PAN cards and Aadhaar cards.

As the owner of the property, you also have to provide proof of ownership, whereas the tenant has to submit proof of his/her permanent address.

Ways to register a rent agreement

You can register your rent agreement in 3 easy ways, depending on what you find convenient. Take a look at what they are below.

Through online registration
To streamline this process, most states allow you to register your rent agreement online. If you’re in Maharashtra, for example, visit the Department of Registration and Stamps, Government of Maharashtra . First register yourself as a user and then draft your agreement, enter owner and tenant’s details, upload the necessary documents and submit it for registration. However, to do this you must have a biometrics scanner and all parties, including witnesses, must have Aadhaar cards. You will be notified of the completion of the process by SMS. The only thing to remember is that you have to pay stamp duty and registration charges by logging on to gras.mahakosh.gov.in

Through your broker
If you wish to register the agreement in person, you can go through your broker, if you have one. He/she will make an appointment at your sub-registrar’s office and prepare a standard rent agreement. You and your landlord can make amendments to this, if you wish to. The good part about registering through a broker is that you will have assistance every step of the way, especially with regards to the documents required and the fees that you have to pay. That said, you have to pay the broker a fee in exchange for these services.
