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.

A wide range of topics from the beginning to end of a tenancy – leases, security deposits, repairs, evictions, hearings and more.

These are the forms approved for use by landlords and tenants, including a notice of rent increase, notices to vacate, security deposits matters and more.

Condition of Premises checklist, Interest on security deposits, certificates of service and sample hearing notices.

Access to the law: The Residential Tenancies Act, 2006, The Residential Tenancies Regulations, 2007 and the Standard Conditions of every tenancy agreement.

Addresses, telephone numbers, email.

Resources for tenants faced with a notice of rent increase.

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.

Past Updates: November 14, 2012 re: Legislative Changes

Did you know:

A lease or other contract, either written or verbal, is legally binding and can only be changed by mutual agreement of the landlord and tenant, with one exception - a landlord may raise rent on proper notice.  

The landlord and tenants may agree to a change of the services provided, for example to install meters to charge for utilities rather than including utilites. If the landlord can not obtain the agreement of tenants to the change, usually by a reduction in rent, the landlord may apply for an order from this Office to allow the change and set the conditions.
