Residential Tenancies

By Laura Farrell

Contributions by: J. C. W. Wylie

Residential Tenancies provides a clear and comprehensive statement of the law regulating private and social leases of dwellings in Ireland, and it explains the dispute resolution mechanisms of the Residential Tenancies Board, appeals, and enforcement. One of the aims of the Residential Tenancies Act 2004 was to provide an inexpensive and speedy means by which disputes between parties to a residential tenancy would be resolved. Despite this aim, the provisions of the Residential Tenancies Act are technical, confusing, and give rise to what has been referred to repeatedly in the High Court as regrettable difficulties of interpretation. This book will provide expert guidance and insight for practitioners and all those who have to navigate the provisions of the Residential Tenancies Act 2004. Recently a torrent of amendments have been made to the Residential Tenancies Act 2004 by the Residential Tenancies Act 2015 which continues to be commenced in a piecemeal fashion. The book takes account of these changes, and correctly locates other disparate pieces of legislation. A comprehensive appendix is included, which provides a sample residential letting agreement, a range of sample notices of termination (to deal with all permitted reasons for termination), and a sample rent review notice.
