Renting Accommodation: Your Rights
  • Rent Book: You are entitled to a Rent Book if you are in self-catering accommodation, and you should request one from your landlord.
  • Threshold: Know Your Rights and Responsibilities as a Tenant, check out the following website: www.threshold.ie
  • Private Residential Tenancies Board – The ‘PRTB’ was set up by the government and provides useful information to both landlords and tenants regarding their rights. All landlords should register their tenancies with the ‘PRTB’, check out their website for further details: www.prtb.ie
  • Building Energy Rating: From the 1st of January 2009 a BER certificate is compulsory for all homes being rented. If you are renting a house or apartment now, you are entitled to a BER – so do ask the landlord or their agent for it.
 When Renting Accommodation - Check the following:
  • Bus Service - Is your accommodation close to a St. Angela’s College bus stop?
  • Viewing - Always ensure that you have viewed the property before signing a lease or paying a deposit.  Bring a friend or parent to view the accommodation and meet the landlord
  • Deposit - Check that any deposit you are asked to pay is refundable, and also the conditions applying to the refund. Get a receipt for your deposit and all future rent payments.
  • Rental Agreement - read and understand the Rental Agreement before signing
  • Conditions - Check that the accommodation is clean and habitable.   If there are any outstanding repairs, ask the landlord to state in writing that they will be repaired – take photos if necessary.
  • Inventory - Before moving into a new property, both you and your landlord should make a list of all furniture and appliances in the property. This list should detail the current state of all items in the property and should be signed by both of you. If there are any queries regarding damage to items when reclaiming your deposit on departure, this can be used as a valuable reference guide.
  • Electricity - Check out arrangements for the payment of electricity – Is there a meter or a bill? Who pays the bill?
  • Broadband - check if broadband is included in the rent - or do organize that yourself?
  • Heating - Is there any? How much does it cost? Remember that a house, which seems warm in September, may be very cold in November.
  • Refuse - What are the collection arrangements and who pays the cost?
  • Remember as a tenant you have the right to peace and quiet in your new home, BUT you also have a responsibility to allow your neighbours the same right to peace and quiet.
