How to approach tenancy not registered

Hi,

I have being renting a property for 6 months and recently needed confirmation of address and rent for a loan, i approached landlord for confirmation said they never do that sort of thing, Alarm bells ringing at this stage previous landlords have always obliged.

So i went onto the RTB website and requested confirmation of tenancy surprise tenancy is not registered with RTB.

Now we haven't had any issues since we have being there we signed a lease and pay rent via bank so have records of all that and communications with landlord.

How do i approach this with them i obviously don't want the "my sister is moving in or im doing up the house" line and having to look for somewhere to live with small kids and current market it's not an option, i don't want to go in all guns blazing and accuse anyone maybe theirs a genuine reason!

I have had issues in the past which the RTB ruled in my favour i just don't want the months of hassle to resolve it all.

The LL can register by paying late reg fee, and is under no obligation to give you any paperwork, though most give a written lease agreement. So, don’t be calling with any sense of entitlement, if he doesn’t do it, that’s his prerogative. Personally I’d give you what you need to get a mortgage, but different strokes for different folks.

Can you not provide lender with copy of your signed lease. Nothing else should be needed. Tenancy reg is up to landlord it doesn’t affect your rights and is not you’re responsibility to have it registered

Don't you have utility bills? They will do as proof if address and the rent amount should be in your bank statements and/or the lease.

I know people slag Threshold, but anyway...

https://www.threshold.ie/advice/seek...be-registered/

"If your landlord does not register your tenancy, they will not be able to refer a dispute to the RTB, but you will still be able to do so."

So you can report it but it appears not to be in your interest to do so.

"Oh no." said no landlord ever.

Agree they should be registered, but the consequences for them are pretty much nil.

Maybe he forgot. This aggressive approach is self defeating.

Speaking from experience, just because you can't find the address on the RTB website, doesn't mean it's not registered. Their logging of registrations is a shambles. Full of typos, entry errors, and just plain missing registrations.

Then the OP definitely won't be getting any confirmation of address from the landlord.

Tidying up the legal paperwork is not " aggressive".

Reporting landlord to rtb for something that could be an error on the widely known fact that the register is often wrong. That is not legal paperwork.

if you need proof of address & rent, give the lender a copy of your lease agreement
