Situ regarding attending an adjudication if we go to Level 4 or 5.

    Hey - thoughts please...

    I have to attend an adjudication on Thursday this week at the RTB due to my old landlord taking a minor claim out against me.

    When Level 4/5 is introduced in coming days, do I still have to attend this by law?

    I live 8km from RTB also.

    They are telling me I do. I've been told by a senior Gardai it's not an 'essential service' so I shouldn't have to attend.

    It'll be in a room in the RTB with 4 other people.

    I am surprised they are still planning to go ahead with it considering we supposedly won't even be able to have one person into our own home etc.
    No online/zoom etc. service has been offered.

    Cheers

    What did he say you did? That's the most important question here.

    It's basic stuff like saying I didn't pay rent when I did and have the bank transfers to prove it. Left house without replacing lightbulbs etc. It's pretty nuts the whole thing but they have a history of doing same to other previous tenants. I have lodged counter applications etc... I'm not massively worried about the actual claim against me.

    I just find it odd that they are saying to have to attend in a level 4/5 situ. Where 'no gatherings are allowed indoors'.

    I'm not really looking for advice on the contents of the case.

    Thanks.

    The courts/adjudicator will follow the government guidelines precisely, let the adjudicator tell you what to do, don't try and second guess their interpretation of the rules.

    Sounds like a pain to deal with. Surely he knows you'd have proof of having paid rent, and it's easier for the LL to just change the bulbs himself.

    If the RTB are telling you to attend i would, it could go against you otherwise - people with small amounts of power frequently like to exercise it to the max.
