18 Sep Draft Tenancy Agreement Ireland
If you rent your home from a private landlord or licensed dwelling, you have an agreement or contract with that person or establishment, known as a rental agreement – which may or may not be in writing. The most common types of rentals are temporary rentals and periodic rentals – both described below. The Residential Tenancies Act 2004 gave tenants the right to stay in rental housing after an initial period of 6 months to 4 years. This right is called a guarantee of ownership and applies to both periodic and temporary rental contracts. Their lease agreement then becomes a partial lease 4 and can be followed by another part 4 lease agreement – both described below. The Planning and Development (Housing) and Residential Tenancies Act 2016 extended Part 4 of the lease (property guarantee) from 4 years to 6 years. .
