Advice for Landlords

Your rights and obligations as a landlord derive from landlord and tenant law as well as from any lease or tenancy agreement (written or spoken) between you and your tenant.

The main legislation governing these rights and obligations in private rented accommodation is set down in the Landlord and Tenant Acts 1967 to 1994, the Residential Tenancies Act 2004 and the Residential Tenancies (Amendment) Act 2015. Landlords who fail to comply with their obligations may be guilty of an offence and may face a public hearing by the Private Residential Tenancies Board and damages of up to €20,000.

Our residential team has superior knowledge of the practical implications for landlords of these rules and can help you comply with your obligations and understand your rights.
