Landlords rights

Quick question as I’m not getting clear answers from RTB.
Is there a register for someone that does not pay rent?

You can search through RTB site for a prospective tenants name, if it’s there, error on the side of caution.

Thanks for that. Someone renting a room in a house and 2nd month in decides not paying rent.

Nope- apparently a register of non-paying tenants breaches their rights to data protection- go figure.
Letting in Ireland is a game of roulette- you probably will have good tenants, but you might not- its a roll of the dice.

The adjudication list has the names published. It should be publicised more. All non paying tenants and landlords who refuse to refund deposits should have a case taken against them and listed here. It might Highlight the landlords to avoid and the tenants to avoid!

Check if he/she is a licensee rather than a tenant if renting a room, who does he/she pay rent to, the lead tenant or the Landlord?

Do you live in the house?
If not- are you letting the rooms separately- or the property to a group of people- if its the latter- they are jointly and severally liable for the full rent. If not- immediate case with the RTB- you can be certain that if they're not paying the rent, they're probably stiffing the other tenants too for other stuff- you don't want them all to up sticks and leave.........

If you live in the house- they're a licensee, not a tenant- and can be requested to leave with immediate effect.

Either way- count your luck that they pulled this stunt in month 2 and not month 6...........

Lead tenant who sublet without informing us. Registered tenant has fuc*ed off to Canada!

If the tenant who isn’t paying, is paying rent to lead tenant on sublet basis, he/she may well be a licensee so you you could throw him/her out on their arse, but if the tenancy lease was assigned and the new non-paying tenant pays rent to landlord, then it is the landlords problem.

In which case they're neither tenant nor licensee.
They are trespassers and you can ask them to leave with immediate effect.

In practice- the lead tenant remains a tenant- irrespective of the fact that he/she has fecked off to Canada- and a case should be lodged against them.

They cannot sublet without permission.

Take legal advice and if it is as the Conductor says it is (FWIW I believe him to be correct) get them out ASAP.

The adjudication list is meaningless- tenants who loose cases can, and do, ask the RTB to remove their details- and I'm not aware of the RTB ever refusing to remove their details. Plenty of tenants don't bother asking- as they're not aware of how the RTB operate- but in practice, the lack of a name on their database does not mean they haven't been in front of a string of tribunals..........

I am in agreement but RTB say 28days notice and hope they leave. I didn’t think I’d need to give him notice. The place is a pigsty and all I want to do is get him out and sort it out.
