Leave and License Agreement

How to get Leave and License agreement (L&L)

First a few fundamentals

1. What is a leave and license agreement --> Its a legal agreement between the landlord and the tenant for the terms and condition, etc. Its specifically called L&L and not rental or tenant agreement to avoid any tenancy rights issues for the landlord

2. Is it required to be registered --> Yes. It should be registered with the registrars office. Notarised agreement does not hold good when it comes to any legal issues or for presenting it in court. I have heard that for 11 month agreement, notarised one is enough but not sure on that.

3. Is a lawyer required to do the registration --> Officially no. There is no lawyer required. You just need a witness along with both of you in the registrar office.

Documents required

1. Rs 500/- stamp paper and the agreement on it

2. Identity proofs (passport, pan card, etc) for tenant and landlord

3. Address proof for landlord (current address)

4. Address proof for landlord of rented premises (electricit bill, index 2, etc)

5. 1 photograph each of landlord and tenent

6. Input form on the top (ideally should be available at the registrar office, but if not then any photocopy shop nearby has it for Rs 3/- or so.

Procedure (Aplicable to Pune)

1. On a Rs 500/- stamp paper, get the L&L agreement printed. The agreement should have details of the tenure, furniture (if any), fees, advance fees, etc.

2. At the end  of the document - put in both your names, left thumb prints and photos.

3. Below that add the name, phone number, address and signatures of two witnesses.

4. Get a DD of Rs 1,000 (it can vary depending on area, etc) from nationalised bank in the name of Sub registrar haveli no 4.

4. Go to and search for your locations registrar office. (Do not follow the online process as that's a trap. The offices are not equipped for it and you will have to run around from one office to another to get your work done)

5. Go to the registrar office in the morning and get a token (appointment). You will be given a document number. Wait for your turn.

6. Once called the landlord(s), tenant and witness need to be present at the office. The pages of agreement including all attachments will be counted and fees charged accordingly.
