Information on rent reviews, rent predictability measures, rent arrears and maintenance
A Rent Pressure Zone (RPZ) is a designated area where rents cannot be increased by more than general inflation, as recorded by the Harmonised Index of the Consumer Price (HICP).
A rent review is a process where a landlord or tenant seeks to change the amount of rent being charged to a property.
From time to time, during a tenancy, details in an existing tenancy registered with the RTB might change. These changes should be updated with the RTB using the guidelines below.
Rent arrears occurs when a tenant has not paid their rent on time. Overholding is when a tenant does not leave once a tenancy has come to an end.
A landlord should maintain their rental properties in a good state of repair, ensuring that the property is safe and healthy to live in. In order to do so they may carry out inspections and access the property to carry out repairs
