The Tamil Nadu Regulations of Rights and Responsibilities of Landlords and Tenants Act 2017 has been enacted on the lines of model Tenancy Act indicated by the Government of India. The Act repeals the Tamil Nadu Buildings ( Lease and Rent Control) Act, 1960. The new legislation aims to regulate the tenancy of buildings as per the terms and conditions of the tenancy agreement executed by the landlords and the tenants and also to safeguard the interest of the landlords and the tenants in case of disputes. As per the provisions of this law, all tenancy agreements should be written agreements and shall be compulsorily registered with the Rent Authority. The registration of the tenancy agreement with the rent authority is independent of the registration requirement of the tenancy agreement under the Registration Act, 1908. Since most of the transactions are done through the tenancy registration portal with the minimum interface of the Rent Authority.
