need urgent advice regarding tenancy in coimbatore
« on: November 24, 2016, 02:31:35 AM »
Hello
Kindly reply to my queries below.

We have taken a house for rent in Coimbatore.
The building has 2 portions in the ground floor and 4 portions in the first floor.
1 portion is occupied by the owner and the remaining 5 were rented out by the owner & are occupied by different tenants (we are the tenants only for 1 portion out of the 6).

The portion that we took for rent doesnot have a separate electricity meter but the connection was fixed initially itself from the owners electricity connection.
But all the other 5 portions have separate meters.

We went out of station for more than 9 months and thus we didnot use the
electricity or water.
But we paid the full rent every month.

Now my question is

1) Is it legally correct for the owner to ask us to pay for the electricity and water for the 9 months in which we did not occupy the house?
Because we have no separate meter
   Infact the owner didnot even have to spend a single penny for water or electricity in those 9 months for our sake(because we were not there and did not use anything and the connection is from his house and they used water and current in all those 9+ months)
   If we had a separate meter it may have been required to pay a minimum amount for electricity alone because water connection is common for all 6 portions of the building.

2) Legally how much rent do we have to pay if we go out for a vacation or other business and just lock the house(our things are there)?

Kindly reply at the earliest as it is an urgent matter. Thankyou for the replies.

Ans: No. Generally Electricity charges are separately being paid by the tenant apart from monthly rent as per his uses. So, in this situation no need to pay electricity.

2) Legally how much rent do we have to pay if we go out for a vacation or other business and just lock the house(our things are there)?
Ans: You have to pay full rent in spite of the rented portion not being used by you and kept it lock and key as it was in your possession.
