Tenant Eviction Notice
A notice for Eviction is issued by a landlord to his tenant. The landlord issues this notice when the tenant refuses to vacate the house even after the lease period expires. Every state has its own rent control act. For instance, Delhi Rent Control Act, 1995 governs the provisions of tenancy in Delhi. The Rajasthan Rent Control Act governs tenancy provisions in Rajasthan in a similar way.
