    Is your Residential Tenancy Agreement Fit for Purpose?

    Over the last couple of years there have been two Amendment Acts to the Original Residential Tenancy Act of 2004. Not only that, there is now a Bill in place proposing more Amendments to the Acts, extending notice periods to tenants.

    More than ever, Landlords and their agents must be absolutely sure that the lease they provide is fit for purpose. The agreement that is put in place between Landlords and Tenants needs to be compliant in many ways to the current legislation, be correctly structured and cover and contain many day-to-day obligations for both the landlord and tenant.

    Marcus O’Connor will deliver a session on his observations, findings and thoughts on lease agreements that are currently being used by agents- most of which are not fit for purpose- and share some valuable remedial advice.

    Marcus will be joined by Tom Dunne, former Chairperson of the RTB and current Head of School of Surveying and Construction Management, DIT who participate for an interactive Q&A session to conclude the session.  

    This lease agreements session will focus on:

    • Recent legislation - potential impacts on residential lease agreements and how a landlord and/or a landlords agent might work them into their current lease
    • Ensuring leases are up to date – identifying out of date information
    • Commonly overlooked clauses such as tenant’s obligation to hold insurance
    • The layout and structure of a lease
    • “Common sense” clauses
    • Special Conditions

    Marcus O’Connor is a former RTB adjudicator and represents landlords in mediation, adjudication and weekly tribunal hearings in the RTB over a 12 year period. Marcus also owns and operates a property services practice- MFO The Property Professionals.
