Sushant Singh Rajput's Mumbai flat finds new tenant after 3 years, to … – The Indian Express

Actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s flat has found new tenants nearly three years after the his passing in 2020. Rafique Merchant, a real-estate broker in Mumbai who runs a popular Instagram page, said that he was approached by the flat’s owner a few months ago. The NRI owner has found a new tenant and soon, the flat will be rented out. Sushant was found dead in the two-storey house on June 14, 2020.
Merchant also added that owing to the flat being vacant, interested tenants began to ask him about it. The flat will be rented out at 5 lakh per month. The owner will also get a security deposit of 30 lakh, which is equal to six months of rent.  Rafique told India Today, “We have found somebody (a tenant). We are in the final stage of talks with the family to finalise things. People are now relaxed about it (Sushant’s death) because they say it has been a while.”
Merchant had earlier told Bollywood Hungama that people were scared of moving into the flat. However, over time, more people began to visit the house, though they still did not agree to move in. “Nowadays, people are at least visiting the flat as the news of his death has become old. Yet, the deal is not getting finalised. The owner is also hell-bent and doesn’t want to come down on the rent. If he does, it’ll be sold quickly. Since he’s selling it at the market price, tenants prefer buying some other flat of a similar size in the same area since it would come without the baggage of controversy that this flat is associated with,” Merchant had said. He also added that while there some people had shown interest in the property, their family members would discourage them from staying there. The owner was apparently clear that he didn’t want to rent out the flat to a celebrity and wanted to hand it over to a corporate person.
