To register a rental agreement, you will have to pay fees such as stamp duty and registration fees. The costs are usually shared between tenants and landlords, but mention this in the agreement. There should also be clarity on who pays the fees such as legal fees, if any, or the intermediary to the agents. The agreement must also have the description of the house you are renting, such as the floor or apartment number, the area of the house, the number of bedrooms, the bathroom, the living room, the kitchen, etc. If it is a furnished house, make sure there is a list of all fixtures and accessories such as beds, sofas, tables, chairs, cabinets, number of fans, air conditioners, lights, etc. In some states where electronic stamp installation is available for leases, you do not need to physically purchase the stamp paper. .
