Ranbir Kapoor, riding high on the super success of Sanju, has encountered trouble from the most unexpected quarters! His tenant in Pune has sued him for asking her to vacate his flat without giving her proper notice. The actor's Pune apartment's tenant has alleged that the actor has not honoured the terms of the rental agreement.
She has said that Ranbir has asked her to vacate the flat without caring for the lock-in period. A lock-in period means neither the tenant or the owner can take take any steps against each other during the same time.Though the tenant has now vacated the flat in Pune, she has sued him for violation of the contract at a Pune Court. Reportedly, she was asked to move out of the apartment in 11 months and she finally vacated the place in October 2017. The lock-in period was for 24 months.The case is scheduled for August 28.
As per the reports in Mumbai Mirror and India Today, Ranbir had rented out his Trump Towers apartment in Kalyani Nagar, Pune back in October 2016 to Sheetal Suryawanshi. Now, Suryawanshi has sought damages and interest from Ranbir for being asked to vacate the apartment before the lock-in perid as mentioned in the rental agreement. Reportedly, the license fee to be paid by Suryawanshi was Rs 4 lakh per month for 12 months and Rs 4.20 lakh for the next 12 monnths, as decided by both Ranbir and the tenant.
Surwayanshi has sought damages worth Rs 50.40 lakh and an interest of Rs 1.08 lakh since her family had to suffer "severe inconvenience and hardships" as she was asked to vacate the place suddenly.
On the other hand, Ranbir's response suggests that Suryawanshi cannot change, modify or interpret the terms and conditions of the leave and license agreent to suit her purpose and convenience, adding that she had vacated the apartment on her own free will. The response also stated that Suryawanshi defaulted on rent for three months before she finally left and the default amount has been deducted from the deposit.
