Who should buy a stamp paper for a house rental agreement?


Either landlord or tenant can buy stamp paper. Legally, stamp paper belongs to purchaser.

Purchase should hold the original stamp paper. Below image for your reference.

If you wish to own an original agreement, buy stamp paper yourself or collect the photocopy or scanned image from other party that is from your tenant or owner.

In sale deed, usually, buyer pays stamp paper cost because buyer wants to hold original copies of agreement. Simiallarly applicable for house rental as well.

I suggest tenant shall buy stamp paper and hold the original agreement because original agreement is very useful for tenant than owner.

Rent agreement is the only valid local proof for tenant. Tenant uses the rental agreement for many local purposes like gas application, employment application, school application, tax claim, vehicle purchase, FMCG purchase, etc..
