Recently several people have been charged with the Common Law offence of conspiracy to defraud the public in relation to activities at Anglo Irish Bank.

Great amount of legislation proposed in 2018 to change the Residential Tenancies Act

The total number of registered tenancies at the end of 2017 was 339,447. This compares with 325,372 tenancies registered at the end of 2016. So the total number is up by 4.3%, but that increase is almost totally explained by AHB registrations (the deadline for them to register was in 2017.) In r

Which parts of legislation are unconstitutional and have any of those parts been brou

The section that's usually thrown around as potentially vulnerable is the RPZ amendment based on Blake and Article 26 reference in the Housing (Private Rented Dwellings) Bill, 1981, where rent controls were found to be unconstitutional. The problem is that these two decisions represent the high wa

Which parts of legislation are unconstitutional and have any of those parts been brou

The IPOA made a huge mistake in issuing that statement and writing to every TD during the passage of the legislation. The contents of their statement was basically "if you pass this legislation landlords will seek ways to get round it and increase costs to renters." This was interpreted by TDs as

PRTB advice please

While it is always difficult to say for sure what an RTB adjudicator will rule, it's likely that you will have the deposit returned minus any costs the landlord incurred in replacing you as tenants. The adjudication process is pretty informal - make sure you bring any documents you want to talk ab

tenancy termination letter near 4 years

The advice you quote from Threshold is correct in so far as it goes. A further part four automatically rolls over and the right to terminate for no reason in the first six months of a further part four tenancy has been repealed. However, if the landlord wishes to prevent a further part four tenancy

Threshold Comments today

I was at the launch. The point being made was badly reported in some places. Their point was that some landlords are conflating 'substantial refurbishment' and 'substantially changing the nature of the property.' They suggest that the refurbishment standard - while permissible for eviction - is lowe

Recent RTB Tribunal determination on termination notices at 4 years expiry of part-4

This has always been the case there's nothing particularly new in the tribunal decision. Section 34(b) can be used to prevent a further part four tenancy coming into being. That's the way it's always been. Removing this provision is as simple as deleting 34(b) from the act. The only issue with re
