Court issued an order extending tenancy law to rural areas of Capital

  • Last Updated on: 21 February , 2024

On Saturday, the Islamabad High Court (IHC) gave landlords a substantial grant of a stay of execution by extending rent control powers across the capital, allowing defaulting tenants to move out within six months. (reported by news source)

The court concluded that although rental agreements between private parties are subject to oversight by the administrator, Diplomatic missions are exempt from rental restrictions as long as only foreign missions, diplomats, and governments use the facilities.

In his appeal, Mohammad Shahbaz asked the federal and metropolitan governments for guidance on amending Islamabad's rent limit ordinances to include private housing companies to facilitate the eviction of defaulting residents.

Private companies and landlords in rural areas file lawsuits in local civil courts, which can take years.

Residents of non-federal territories must invoke the Property Transfers Act of 1882 to appeal under the Tenancy Act, said Assistant Attorney General Ousman Guman.
