A Layman’s Guide to Landlord-Tenant Disputes in Pakistan

Landlord-tenant disputes are all too common in Pakistan, leading to legal complications. These disputes often revolve around rent increase, eviction, maintenance, and return of security deposit. Various Rent Control Acts regulate these issues, providing mechanisms for dispute resolution.

One of the main aspects of these laws is to ensure a fair increase in rent. They outline the method and percentage by which a landlord can increase the rent annually.

Eviction is another major area of disputes. The law protects tenants from arbitrary eviction, allowing it only under specific circumstances like non-payment of rent, subletting without permission, or use of property for illegal purposes.

While these laws offer some level of protection, navigating a landlord-tenant dispute can be complex and emotionally charged. It requires not only a strong understanding of the law but also tactful negotiation.
