    If the total value of services provided by your landlord is more than Rs. 10 Lakhs during the year - he is liable to collect service tax from you and pay it to the govt.

    This 10 Lakh monetary limit is not per tenant/property but the cumulative sum of services provided.

    All services incl rent would be taken into account.

    So, if he is an Architect, the services provided by him as an architect would also be taken into account for computing the Rs. 10 Lakh limit.
