Ordeals in renting a house and the aftermath at Bangalore city

Bangalore, being called the IT capital of the country, is visited by thousands of professionals every year. Many of them have to rent a house which proves not only a costly affair but results in other ordeals like adjustment of advance taken and maintenance etc. Quite often advance of Rs. 1 lakh or more money is to deposited with the landlord and the invariably a clause of painting and maintenance is incorporated in the agreement. At the time of leaving the house these clauses create problems, both getting the advance back in full as well as getting the house painted as the landlords do not stick to these clauses or there is a difference of opinion.
