What to do?

The civil code clearly states that an owner can take the security deposit from a tenant for the expenses to be made on the property given to the tenant, unpaid rent and the damage done-on-purpose by the tenant.

Lack Of Understanding With Tenant:

“ Nahi bhai tum nahi samajhte baat ko”

Late Payment Of Rent:

“Uncle bhag nahi raha, rent de kar hi jaunga”

Damages Done On Purpose:
