Rent Control Act related Cases

The Rent Control Act is a law established to regulate the rental market in certain areas. Its primary purpose is to make housing more affordable for tenants by limiting the amount landlords can charge for rent. However, this can sometimes lead to disputes between landlords and tenants.

Here are some common types of cases that can arise under the Rent Control Act:

  • Rent Increases: A tenant disputes the legality of a rent increase imposed by the landlord. The Rent Control Act might have restrictions on how much rent can be raised and how often.
  • Eviction: A landlord seeks to evict a tenant, but the tenant believes the eviction is not justified under the Act. The Act might have specific reasons for eviction, such as non-payment of rent or causing damage to the property, etc.
  • Maintenance Issues: A tenant withholds rent due to unaddressed maintenance issues in the property, and the landlord claims the rent is still owed. The Act might outline the landlord’s responsibility for repairs and habitable conditions.

The Rent Control Act basically protects the rights of the tenant as well as the rights of the landlord. Here are few Rights protected under the Rent Control Act.

Right of a Tenant:

  1. Right against unfair eviction
  2. Fair rents
  3. Essential services

Rights of a Landlord:

  1. Right to evict
  2. Charge rent
  3. Temporary repossession of property
