Rent & Refundable deposit on flat

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Muftisays.com
We own a flat in India with a market value of 5 Million Indian Rupees(INR). Are we allowed to rent it out to a tenant for a period of 1 year with the following contract –
1. Rent INR 10000 per month
2. Parking & Maintenance INR 2000 per month
3. Refundable security deposit INR 1 Million.

Bismillah

Al-jawab billahi at-taufeeq (the answer with Allah’s guidance)

There should be no problem in this contract, as long as there are no interest-based dealings involved i.e. in paying the rent, refunding the security deposit with interest to the tenant at the end of the tenancy etc.

And Only Allah Knows Best.
