As a tenant in Ireland today, you enjoy a comprehensive series of rights that previous generations have not. The Residential Tenancies Board (RTB) website has all the up-to-date information in relation landlord-tenancy rights and responsibilities.
In the meantime, DNG Creedon has drawn up a short list of some of the more common questions that our tenants have asked us when looking to secure a rental property.
Yes. All landlords will provide a rent book, which ensures that there will be no confusion about rent paid or amounts owing, making it clear for both landlord and tenant.
Once a tenancy is in place, a landlord may only enter the property with the permission of the tenant. If repairs or works need to be carried out at the property, it must be done by prior arrangement between landlord and tenant, except in the event of an emergency.
No. There is no such automatic right. Any question of keeping pets on a rented property are at the discretion of the landlord.
