How much is the rent that is paid by the tenant? In case you are governed by the Rent Control Act, you can only evict upon certain grounds as mentioned in the Act. The Act also provides for immediate recovery of possession in certain cases. In case you are not governed by the Rent Control Act, the eviction will have to take place in terms of the Transfer of Property Act. Under Section 106 of the Act, you can serve a two weeks notice claiming that in the absence of the contract, the lease was from month to month and has been terminated by you.
