REASONING THE REASONS

LEGAL REASONING, LOGICAL REASONING ANALYTICAL REASONING

LEGAL REASONING

Principles:

1. Possession is nine-point ownership.
2. Recovery of possession is done as per procedure of law.
3. Removing any one from continuing possession without legal procedure is not permitted in law.

Factual Situation: X is a tenant of a room in the market complex owned by Y. X used the room as a property consultancy by paying monthly rent, electricity charges and water bills etc. One day Y came to X's shop and vehemently told him to vacate the same within seven days' time. But X could not vacate it due to some monetary problems. After seven days Y came to X's shop and threw away all the furniture, documents and other assets of X, locked the shop and took the key away by abusing X that he was the real owner of the shop with all the necessary documents.

X being aggrieved, filed a petition for recovery of possession under section 6 of The Specific Relief Act, 1963.

Decision:

              (a) Court cannot order for recovery of possession in favour of X as Y is the real                      owner of property/shop.

              (b) Court can order for recovery of possession in favour of X as Y did not follow                      the legal procedure to vacate X from his shop.

              (c) Court can direct the local police officer as the action of Y is of criminal                     nature.

              (d) Court can reject the petition of X as he is not the owner of property and he                      was doing  business on Y's property.

The answer is (b).
