My wife is a physician and has a clinic for more than 10yrs (Chennai), she has been paying the rent regularly. During the month of December 2017, the Landlord informed us that they are increasing the rent from 3000 to 5000, with a lot of discussions we have agreed to pay the same for the month of January 2018.
However, the Landlord calls on 23rd Jan 2018 and requests us to vacate because they have better tenants who are willing to pay 7000/- for the same shop. Since we do not have any options, we are planning to vacate. Can anyone advice if we are doing the correct thing in vacating, can the landlord increase the rent and also push us to vacate simultaneously?

Do you have registered rent agreement with the landlord?
If there is no rent agreement, then it becomes difficult to stop the land lord from asking you vacate.
You can ask for some time to find out a new place to shift at best.

Do you have the signed agreement and follow the terms and condition of that agreement. You [agreement holder] can at best in writing ask the land lord to provide sufficient time to leave the premises. The action of your land lord is unjust and unfair.
You can sue the person for irational behaviour and loss tune to change of address and suffering of the business and cost of fixtures etc. You need to contact a good civil lawyer for the same.
The landlord can under terms & condition of agreement only can ask for vacate & increase the rent.

Hi Nathrao and Prabhat,
We do have a registered rent agreement with the landlord.
The information you'll have given has helped us to warn the landlord for there behavior.
Thank you and we appreciate your help.
