Office of Residential Tenancies (Rentalsman)
Welcome to our website. Here you will find information about the rights and responsibilities of landlords and tenants. When both the landlord and tenant are well informed, problems can be resolved directly. Your own solution is typically far more satisfactory for you than an order telling you what to do following a hearing in this office. If you are a landlord or a tenant and have issues in relation to a residential rental, we invite you to share the information on this website with the other party, in the hope that a common understanding of your rights and responsibilities will assist both parties to find a reasonable solution without the need to apply for and attend a hearing.
Disclaimer: This information on this website is general. Decisions by hearing officers on specific disputes will reflect the hearing officer’s findings of fact from the evidence presented and his or her application of the law to those findings of fact. The common law and the provisions of The Residential Tenancies Act, 2006 apply in all cases. For legal advice, you need to consult a lawyer.
