Closing room without an appropriate reason is a ground(Non User of more than 6 months ) for eviction, you said that you have also bought another premises and hance created second ground( alternative Premises) in favour of the landlord for eviction against you. Please show some most essential reason for leaving said Premises and also not disclosing the Landlord. Please visit premises get some evidence like electricity other bills etc., to show that u are in need of the same and your shifting is necesssary. Other wise Court will pass Order against you.

Yes. If you have no use of your tenanted flat then he is entitled to recover possession from you under the maharashtra rent control act. In whose name the rent receipts are there? Bring all the documents to my office for appropriate guidance.
