Information on the Residential Tenancies Act 2015 and what this means for you as a Clanmil Ireland Tenant

As of 7th April 2016, all Housing Association tenancies fall under the remit of the Residential Tenancies Act 2015. Clanmil Ireland Housing Association will have an obligation to register all tenancies with the Residential Tenancies Board (RTB). The Residential Tenancies Board operates a national tenancy registration system and assists to resolve disputes involving landlords and tenants.

The Association has 12 months to register all tenants with the Residential Tenancies Board; however from 7th April 2016, you as a tenant can avail of the services provided by the Residential Tenancies Board.

Once registered, The Residential Tenancies Board will send out written confirmation of the registration to both the tenant and the landlord.

Under the Residential Tenancies Act there will be some changes to your tenancy and your rights as a tenant. Some of the main points are listed below:

  • Dispute resolution and mediation services will be available by The Residential Tenancies Board
  • Your rent and service charge review will now be carried out once per year until further notice (however you will still be required to advise Clanmil Ireland if your circumstances change and a further review will be completed)
  • There are new minimum notice periods for terminating a tenancy. This refers to both the tenant and the landlord.
  • Under Part 4 of the Residential Tenancies Act, if a tenant has been renting for at least six months (from the start of the Act on 7th April 2016), you will acquire a ‘Part 4 tenancy’. At the end of the 4 year period, the tenancy is deemed terminated and a new tenancy comes into being where the dwelling continues to be let to the same tenant(s). This new tenancy is known as a ‘further Part 4 tenancy.’

Further information is available on the website www.rtb.ie. Should you have any queries or concerns regarding the above please contact your Estates Officer Elaine Fairley (086 417 0531) or Katie Madden (086 140 7990) or the Residential Tenancies Board. Please note the Residential Tenancies Board cannot provide legal advice. 

RTB Phone number: 9:00am to 5.00pm Monday to Friday - 0818 30 30 37
