House Owner Not Returning the Advance Money Paid
« on: August 18, 2015, 03:16:28 AM »

I live in Bangalore. An year before I with three of my friends moved into a new rented house of 10800 rupees and paid the advance as 60000 rupees with both parties signing an agreement (Unfortunately the original was with the house owner and we have copy of it). Three months before we vacated the house asking the owner to return the advance money. As per the agreement he will deduct a month rent from the advance money for renewing the house for the next tenant. Initially the owner said he will return the money 49200 rupees (= 60000 - 10800) within a month, but we didn't believe in his words so we said we'll stay in the house for one more month and the owner has agreed to return the money 38400 (= 49200 - 10800) by end of the month.

As soon as a month was gone, we asked for the money from owner. Again this time he said some random excuses and said will return it in another month. Since we already took another house, we couldn't do anything much and vacated the house. Now it's been almost three months, still we didn't get our money from him. He always tell us some excuses and asking us to come some other day. we would have spent almost 2000 rupees only on the traveling to his place all these days.

Any legal advice on this, how can we legally demand the money from this greedy house owner without bribing the police or someone else will be really helpful. Thank you.

Sending an Advocate Notice will be just a evidence. If the landlord fails to pay you the same then you have to file a Money suit against him or you can place your matter before Lok Adalat.
