MUMBAI: The city police on Tuesday clarified that a no-objection certificate (NOC) from the police is not required to rent out your house. However, senior officials said that it was mandatory to submit details of tenants at the local police station.
“This step has been taken to make the procedure easier for ten ants and owners. There had been several complaints of estate agents spreading rumours about a police NOC being mandatory and some of them had also been collecting money for the same. We never sought any NOC. We just want the tenant's information to be submitted,“ said Deven Bharti, joint commissioner of police, responsible for city's law and order.
“If you have a tenant or have rented a flatroom, you can simply send us the details either in person, by courier or through registered post. The confusion has been created by estate agents,“ added Bharti.
The police have also issued a format for submission of the information, which includes the flatroom owner's name, address, contact numbers, address of the rented property , tenant's name, previous address, native place address, contact numbers, email address, photo identification, one passport-size photo, address of hisher work place and a letter of verification from the employer.The police have also sought deatils of the agent, in case the property is rented through one.
