Home » News » Residential Tenancies Board (RTB) FAQ
Another busy week here in Casey Kennedy Properties. In this week’s video, our Managing Director Shane O’Callaghan answers some of the frequently asked questions about the Residential Tenancies Board (RTB).
What is the Private Residential Tenancies Board (RTB)? The Private Residential Tenancies Board was established to operate a national tenancy registration system and to resolve disputes between landlords and tenants. The Residential Tenancies Act 2004 provides that landlords must register their tenancies with the PRTB. The PRTB maintains a published register of tenancies which is available to the public. Personal details are not disclosed on this register.
Who is responsible for registering a tenancy with the RTB? It is the responsibility of the landlord to register the tenancy with the RTB. New tenancies must be registered within one month of the start of the tenancy. When the tenancy agreement is registered the tenancy will be allocated a unique registration number (RT number). The registration number and the details of the registration entry will issue to both the landlord and the tenant.
What dwellings are exempt from registration with the RTB? The Residential Tenancies Act applies to the main stream private rental sector and therefore the following tenancies do not have to be registered:
Business premises, even where partly residential (subject to the landlord and tenant amendment Act 1980)
Formerly rent-controlled sector
Long Occupation Equity lease tenancies
A dwelling let by or to a public authority or voluntary housing body
A dwelling occupied under a shared ownership lease
A holiday let
A dwelling in which the landlord is also resident
A dwelling in which the spouse, parent or child of the landlord is resident and there is no written lease or tenancy agreement
A dwelling that is occupied rent free
A dwelling available to rent but not yet let to a tenant
How do I register with the RTB? Registration of a tenancy may be completed online on rtb.ie Alternatively, you can download the registration form (RTB1) from the RTB website and post to Registrations, Residential Tenancies Board, PO Box 11884, Dublin 2.
When do I have to register a tenancy? You should register your tenancy agreement with the RTB within one month of the start of the tenancy. This is very important as we have seen a lot of cases where landlords have to pay the late fee!
Is the registration an annual requirement? The registration of a tenancy lasts the length of the tenancy agreement but is subject to a maximum duration of 4 years. If a tenancy has been in existence for four years it must be re-registered with the RTB. Thus, the registration may not be an annual requirement. However, when the tenancy is terminated, any new tenancy created in respect of the dwelling must be registered.
Do I need to register with the RTB if my tenant moves out and I get a new tenant? If your tenant moves out then it is the end of the tenancy and your new tenant will need to be registered with the RTB within one month of the commencement date.
However if it was a tenancy agreement with multiple tenants and at least one tenant still resides in the dwelling, then you just need to update the tenancy details with the RTB. Many people are not aware that there is generally no charge for updating your tenancy details.
Do I need to notify the RTB to any changes in the tenancy that has been registered? Yes the RTB should be notified to changes in the details that were registered. There is no fee for providing an update of tenancy details. Please note that if there is a change in the amount of rent then the RTB should be notified within one month of the change.
What are the registration fees? Registration fees for private rented tenancies:
