The landlord is required to provide a tenant with a rental book to use for the duration of the tenancy. The lessor must enter the rental agreement information into the rental book and, in the case of a new rental agreement, complete the inventory of furniture and appliances delivered with the house for the exclusive use of the tenant. Since July 2009, the definition of the lease under the Residential Tenancies Act 2004 no longer covers leases for which the lease term is longer than 35 years. If the term of a tenancy agreement is longer than 35 years, it is not considered a rental unit that must be registered with the Residential Tenancies Board (RTB) under the Residential Tenancies Act 2004. A temporary rent is a rent valid for a fixed period of time. A “Part 4” tenancy agreement is in progress next to a fixed-term lease, i.e. the tenant is entitled to the provisions of a “Part 4” tenancy agreement after a period of 6 months and, as is normally the case, (i.e. the tenant may remain in the property for 4 or 6 years). It simply means that, regardless of the length of the fixed-term lease, a tenant is entitled to stay in the unit for up to 4 or 6 years, and the lessor can only terminate the lease for a limited reason. Click here to see why an owner can terminate a lease. Whether the lease is established or not, all leases, as it is called, become a Part 4 lease as soon as the tenant is employed for more than six months. “Part Four” refers to the corresponding section of the Housing Act 2004 and deals with the security of the lease and the circumstances under which a lease may be terminated.
As a general rule, most licensing agreements are not within the jurisdiction of the RTB. Please note that a licence, as it is designated as such, does not necessarily mean that it does not constitute a lease for the purposes of the RTB. You are not entitled to a lease. A lessor must only submit a written lease if the lease is to last more than one year. If you do not have a lease, you have fundamental rights defined by law. After the end of the first cycle (4 or 6 years) of your part 4 rental contract, a new rent begins. You have another rent for Part 4. Your landlord was able to terminate this lease at any time for the first 6 months, without any justification. However, this provision was repealed effective January 17, 2017 by the Planning and Development (Housing) Act and residential rents of 2016. LawDepot`s lease automatically requires a rental book. It is important to note that a landlord is required to register a new rental of a residential property (known as a “tenant”) with the Residential Tenancies Board (known as the “RTB”).
