Updating a Tenancy Registration

From time to time, details in an existing tenancy registered with the RTB might change. These changes should be updated with the RTB using the guidelines below.

For example:

  • Rent Amount Update; if there is a change of rent amount, a landlord is required to notify the RTB within one month after the date the new rent has taken effect
  • Add/Remove a Tenant; if the tenant details are changing, but at least one of the original tenants remains in the rented property
  • Add/Remove a Landlord; if you are adding or removing a landlord, but at least one of the original landlords remains on the registration
  • If you are no longer the owner or one of the landlords of the rented dwelling or are no longer renting out the dwelling

If there is an entirely new owner for the property you will need to provide additional information and should contact us at registrations@rtb.ie for further information.

No fee is payable when providing an update of tenancy details, once at least one of the original tenants is still part of the tenancy. If not, this is a new tenancy and a new registration is required.

Please Note: A tenancy commencement date cannot be updated. If the wrong tenancy commencement date was erroneously provided on the application to register, then a correction must be submitted in writing to the RTB. This can be done by e-mail to registrations@rtb.ie or by post to RTB, PO BOX 47, Clonakilty, Co Cork. Late fees may apply where applicable.
