For the first time since setting up Zyxware in 2006 we are moving our office and when else do you need a lease agreement other than when you move in to a new place :-). This is a sample of our lease agreement which we had used for our current office and which we will probably be using for our future offices as well. We are sharing this with the rest of the world as per our open documentation policy. Copy and use this sample lease agreement as a template to create yours as you like.

When a company takes up a project with a client they normally will have to sign an agreement with the client that neither party will disclose information that will be shared as part of the project to anybody else and that the information shared shall not be used for creating competing products/services by the company. This is a standard document that needs to be signed for most projects. This document is also referred to as Non Disclosure Agreement. We are publishing our Confidential Disclosure Agreement here. Feel free to copy and use for your needs. Business Solution Agreements CDA NCA nithin (not verified) access_time 20 Sep 2021 - 18:49 In the event of a dispute, what is the legal validity of such a document? webmaster access_time 20 Sep 2021 - 18:49 In reply to Legal validity by nithin (not verified) The validity would depend on how you register the contract. I think you can have a legally binding contract registered between two parties. There is an Indian Contracts Act that deals with such issues. You can please refer that or talk with a lawyer ;) Shailendra (not verified) access_time 20 Sep 2021 - 18:49 Hi, I would like to know whether this Agreement can be printed on a Company Letterhead to be legally enforceable or does it need to be done on a Stamp Paper only? If on a Stamp Paper, then of what value? Thank you, Regards, Shailendra Naveena (not verified) access_time 20 Sep 2021 - 18:49 In reply to What is the Substrate that should be used for this Agreement? by Shailendra (not verified) It has to be ideally on Rs. 50 stamp paper, or refer to the state stamp Act where it is executed. In case of other party being an International client, in such a case on letter head or original sheets.

Useful piece.

When you've signed a lease, don't forget your tenants insurance to protect your possessions!

This was really helpful.
I was asked to pay 1500/- by a broker for making a rental agreement.
This will help me once I get the stamp paper.

what if one of the tenants vacate the house after 3 months of his/her stay? Will that person get the advance back from the owner or the other tenants would adjust the advance when leaving?

both drafts above are incorrect or misguiding.
it is better to get the same drafted by the local lawyer.
the document shall be holistic; indigenous; fool-proof; local law abiding.. other formalities of execution; property tax liability; indemnity etc.
