Further to our earlier blogpost of 18th September, 2012 regarding new proposals for residential tenants’ deposits, it was reported yesterday that Minister of State for Housing Jan O’Sullivan is proposing to introduce an amendment to the Residential Tenancies Bill.

The proposed amendment is intended to make it easier for homeowners or residents’ associations to register complaints against tenants engaging in anti-social behaviour. The proposed amendments, if passed, will strengthen the PRTB’s system of resolving issues arising from anti-social behaviour. It is proposed that the Residential Tenancies Board will have the authority to order landlords to take action against tenants who are found to be engaging in anti-social behaviour or alternatively, to impose financial penalties on landlords who fail to take action. The Residential Tenancies Bill is currently going through the Oireachtas.
