Lack of supply and ever increasing rents, not to mention huge competition for every rental property that comes available. If you are experiencing these difficulties in trying to rent a home in Ireland, we at Bradley Homes can advise you on some steps that will make you stand out from the crowd when trying to find a home to rent.
When a property becomes available for rent, the landlord or agent is inundated with enquiries. Being prepared with all your “ducks lined up in a row” is the best way for you to proceed and stand out from the crowd.
The quicker you move with your paperwork for your application, the landlord or agent will then arrange a viewing for you to then decide if the property suits your needs.
Signing a Lease Agreement
Before signing a lease agreement you should read it thoroughly. A tenant has obligations when renting which must be observed under The Residential Tenancies Act 2004 as does a landlord. Any questions should be address before signing.
The lease agreement is registered with The RTB (residential tenancies board).
“The RTB provides high-quality information and assistance to landlords, tenants and the public on their rental rights and responsibilities, both in terms of living in and providing accommodation in the rental sector.” www.rtb.ie.
