If it's rented through an agency, the agency should arrange the annual payment for you with the landlord form their end, you just might have to remind them to do so. We live in a rented house and the agent for the house sorts out sending out the annual charge stickers to us for the bins. another point, if you're renting on an estate that has an annual upkeep fee payable to the estate comittee for keeping greens maintained etc (some estates on the Dunmore road do this anyway), the landlord again should normally be paying this charge.
echosound, thanks for this. But the landlord paying the €140 annual charge, is this a legal obligation of the landlord, or simply "the norm"? If the latter, I have little grounds to ask him to pay, and if he doesn't want to, I certainly can't force him.
If, on the other hand, it is indeed the landlord's legal obligation to pay the €140 annual charge, does anyone have a link to this legislation? I certainly can't find anything as yet..
