What is a Rent Deed?

A contract of rental which is written between the owner of a property and a renter ho wishes to have the possession of the property for a temporary basis is known as a Rent Agreement or Deed. It is different from a Lease Deed, which is basically made for a fixed term.

Rent Agreement includes and identifies the parties, the term of rental, the property, and the amount of rent for the term. The term Lessor is referred to as the owner of the property and the Lessee is referred to the renter. It is basically a clear-cut, oblique, or prescribed rental agreement involved to specify the terms of the rental and is regulated under the Contract law.

Rental Agreements are made for letting out some properties for example real state, for housing tenure (residence rent), sometimes a parking space for vehicles is also rented, godowns or storage space, agricultural, institutional purpose, or for Government use etc. This primarily focusses on Rent Deed Agreement and its benefits.
