police authorities contact police in different provinces to find interested parties if necessary. However, this usually happens in high-level cases and not just in all cases. However, police authorities tend to do so only when absolutely necessary. (Law Firm, Islamabad 14.12.2017) This response was developed following a search for publicly available information, currently available to the research directorate under the pressure of time. This answer is not and is not admissible to a conclusive question about the merits of a particular right to refugee protection. Below is a list of the sources consulted in the search for this request for information. Q: Who is responsible for registering the lease before the Rent Registrar? A: The lessor is responsible for submitting the contract to the registration before the Chancellor. Q: What happens if the lease is not registered with the Rent Registrar office? A: If the rental contract is not registered with the rental registrar, then the rent court has no application on behalf of the landlord, unless it files a fine equal to 10% of the value of the annual rent in the public treasury and, in the case where the tenant needs an appeal, he has filed a fine equal to 5% of the annual rent in the public treasury. The purpose of this letter is to provide Punjab landlords and tenants with information about their legal responsibilities and rights, especially for foreign Pakistanis who wish to rent their residential and commercial properties. This information is not intended to replace professional legal advice, as the circumstances are different in all cases, a detailed legal investigation is required to resolve disputes or make submissions.
Can landlords and tenants freely reconcile rents in Pakistan? Q: How is a lease concluded? A: There is no mandatory format for a rental contract. The content of the tenancy agreement rests with the lessor and the tenant, but the tenancy agreement must comply with the provisions of the Punjab Rented Restriction Act, 2009, although the provisions of all statutes are largely similar, but there are significant differences. The legal system in general and in terms of rent in particular is very effective, albeit a little slow. The rights of the parties are strictly respected and the rules are interpreted and applied fairly consistently. The representative of the Islamabad law firm provided, via the Islamabad police website, the following information on the rental process: According to the new law, the non-provision of information about a tenant within 48 hours from the date of surrender of the property of the rented premises would be an identifiable offence and not financially and can be a custodial sentence of six months and a fine from Rs10,000 to Rs45,000.
