Is it legally necessary to pay money for vacating of a rented house?

Hi, i am living in a rented flat in DLF society and we are about to move out. But the society is telling us to pay Rs 5000 as move out fee. We were not informed about it when we came here to live. It's not even mentioned in the agreement. What should we do?

If your agreement of Rent does not talks about anything regarding the moving out fee in any sort,then you are not liable to pay any such amount to the landlord until and unless there has been any kind of bills generated against you,pending dues or other clearances.You need to ask them to specify the reason of such demand from whom the demand is raised.
