Rent Deed must be in writing and registered?
As required by section 5 of the Punjab Rental Premises Act 2009, every rent/tenancy agreement
must be in writing and registered with the Rent Registrar under the Registration Act, 1908. The Rent
Registrar will then enter the particulars of the rent/tenancy in a register, affix his official seal on the
tenancy agreement, retain a copy thereof, and return the original agreement to the landlord.
The tenancy agreement entered into between a landlord and tenant must be registered with the
Rent Registrar in order to be valid. Any other agreements made between the two parties regarding
the property must also be presented to the Rent Registrar for approval.
