Eviction Petition must be decided within four months

An eviction petition is filed by the landlord to evict the tenant. It is solely for the purpose of getting the possession back from the Tenant on the grounds mentioned in section 17 of Islamabad Rent Restriction Ordinance 2001.

It is often called as ejectment petition. If the tenant is a rent defaulter, the court is empowered to pass order under section 17 (8) of the IRRO, 2001. Similarly if the tenant contempts to the order of court under section 17(8), the court is duty bound to evict the tenant under section 17(9) of IRRO, 2001.

The court doesnt have powers to let the tenant pay rent in delay. Even a single day's delay in paying rent is unbearable in the world of Rent Controller. The judge hearing and deciding the Eviction Petition is called the Rent Controller. The Rent Controller has limited powers under the statute.

The Rent Controller is bound the evict the tenant within a period of 4 months if the eviction petition is a maintainable one. For further queries feel comfortable to contact us in all kinds of rent matters at internationallawyerinfo@gmail.com
