ALL ABOUT THE LAW OF LI­CENCE

HT Estates - - HTESTATES -

Per­mis­sive pos­ses­sion given to fam­ily mem­bers, loved ones, rel­a­tives is gov­erned by the law of li­cence

The con­cept of li­cence is de­fined under the In­dian Ease­ments Act, 1882. A li­cence is a per­sonal right granted by one per­son to an­other to do some­thing on an im­move­able prop­erty of the grantor with­out cre­at­ing any in­ter­est in re­spect of the pos­ses­sion or ti­tle of the prop­erty

In a li­cence, the pos­ses­sion of the prop­erty re­mains with the owner but the li­censee is merely per­mit­ted to use or stay in the premises for a par­tic­u­lar pur­pose

No in­ter­est in the prop­erty is cre­ated in favour of the li­censee and the li­censee can use the prop­erty only in the man­ner which is per­mit­ted by the li­cen­sor

If the prop­erty owner wants his prop­erty back, he may direct the rel­a­tive (li­censee) to va­cate the premises. For ter­mi­na­tion of li­cence, a notice may be sent in writ­ing by the owner

If the li­censee fails to va­cate the premises de­spite a ter­mi­na­tion notice, the li­cen­sor may file a suit of in­junc­tion be­fore the court of law seek­ing re­lief
