Passed on 1 August 2020, the 2020 Residential Tenancies and Valuation Act (the Act) provides for longer notice periods in notices of termination for failure to pay rent served on tenants during the ’emergency period’, which runs until 10 January 2021. It also prohibits increases in rents on tenancies of dwellings during this period.
The Act also contains additional provisions on giving notifications and notices of termination by landlords to tenants and the Residential Tenancies Board in relation to arrears of rent; as well as extending the period within which a valuation list in relation to the rating authority area of Dun Laoghaire Rathdown County Council must be published.
The Act amends the 2004 Residential Tenancies Act (2004 Act); the 2020 Emergency Measures in the Public Interest (Covid-19) Act (Covid-19 Act); and the 2001 Valuation Act (2001 Act) for these and other purposes.
