It is completely legal and valid to prepare a 11-month rent agreement in India. Such rental agreements are completely authentic and can also be present in the court as a piece of evidence.

As a matter of fact, most of the people (be it the tenant or the landlord) opt for an 11-month rent agreement because of its subtleness and affordability. This means that if a rent agreement is made for more than 12 months, it becomes mandatory to get it registered with the local authority. An 11-month rental agreement, on the other hand, dodges the complexity of registration, making the process simpler for both, the tenant and the landlord. In addition, when drafting an 11-month rent agreement, tenants do not have to bear the registration cost, making the process much cost-effective.
