UNDERSTANDING THE LEGAL LANDSCAPE: LAWS ON RENTAL AGREEMENTS
In Pakistan, rent agreement disputes are primarily governed by two main laws:
THE RENT RESTRICTION ORDINANCE (RRO) OF 1963
The Rent Restriction Ordinance is applicable in the provinces of Punjab, Sindh, Balochistan, and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. Under this ordinance, the relationship between a landlord and tenant is governed, and it lays down rules and regulations related to rent, tenancy, and eviction. It provides safeguards for both landlords and tenants and aims to strike a balance between their respective rights.
Key features of the Rent Restriction Ordinance include:
- Fixing and revision of rents: The RRO outlines the procedures for fixing and revising rents, and it prohibits arbitrary rent increases by landlords.
- Eviction rules: The ordinance sets out specific grounds on which a landlord can seek to evict a tenant. The eviction process must adhere to the legal requirements and must be approved by a Rent Controller.
The RRO recognizes oral and written tenancy agreements, but a written agreement is always preferred as it provides clarity and evidence in case of disputes.
THE ISLAMABAD RENT RESTRICTION ACT OF 2001
The Islamabad Rent Restriction Act governs rental properties in the federal capital territory, Islamabad. It is similar in essence to the Rent Restriction Ordinance and provides similar protections and procedures for both landlords and tenants.
Key aspects of the Islamabad Rent Restriction Act include:
RENT CONTROL TRIBUNALS
This Act establishes Rent Control Tribunals to handle disputes between landlords and tenants. The tribunals have the authority to decide on rent disputes, eviction cases, and other issues related to tenancy agreements.
The Act aims to provide a fair and efficient resolution of disputes between landlords and tenants, ensuring justice for both parties.
