Residential tenancies (Deferment of termination dates of certain tenancies) Act 2002 has been passed by the Dáil and Seanad is set in place to protect tenants whose tenancy is ending between the 30th of October 2022 and the 1st of April.
The tenants that are offered this protection are those whose lease was set to end between the aforementioned dates and ones who would have been left without accommodation due to no fault of their own i.e. the property owner decides to sell the property or use of the property by a family member of the property owner.
