Types of disputes

There is a large amount of dispute types but these are the most common ones

There are many types of disputes that can arise over the duration of a tenancy. The most common disputes brought to the RTB are validity of a notice of termination, rent arrears, deposit retention and rent arrears with overholding.

  • Rent Arrears 
  • Overholding: This arises where a valid notice of termination has been served but the tenant has not vacated after the termination date
  • Validity of the notices of termination: This is where a party applies to the RTB to determine the validity of the notice of termination
  • Deposit retention
