“Landlords Are Entitled To Rent Sum Even Where Notices To Quit Are Served On Tenants”
“Notice To Quit”, “Seven (7) Notice Of Owner’s Intention To Recover Premises” and even “Court Summons” when served on a tenant does not mean that such tenant will not pay for any arrears of rent or rent (mesne profit) anymore for any extra period spent on the property.
Hence, a Tenant MUST pay for all the period he spent on a rented property not minding he was served Notices or even taken to court.
My authorities are sections 12 and 13 of Recovery of Premises Act and other similar laws across the states.
