Important – Rent Arrears New Process


A new process for rent arrears has been introduced as of the 2nd August 2020.


  • The rent arrears procedure is an eight step process and is more onerous, complicated and involved than the previous process.


  • New temporary protections are in place for tenants who are unable to pay their rent due to Covid-19.  A tenant must serve a Self-Declaration Form on a landlord to avail of the protection.

  • A document has been produced with updated information for landlords and tenants.  It clarifies queries that may have arisen as a result of recent legislative changes and is available here.
