Sherry FitzGerald Lettings is holding a residential rental seminar on Wednesday May 31 to bring clarity to a raft of new residential landlord and tenant legislative changes. Rent pressure zones, rent certainty measures, and changes to Part 4 tenancies are among recent changes of which many landlords have little or no knowledge, or often anecdotal inaccurate information.
On January 26, 2017, Housing Minister Simon Coveney designated Galway city centre, along with Galway east and west, as Rent Pressure Zones (RPZ ) for a period of three years which, among other changes, brings restrictions to levels by which rents can be increased annually, to include formulas in how rent increases can be applied. In addition, the Government, in December 2015, introduced rent certainty measures which apply minimum tenancy terms and changes to notice periods.
The aim of this seminar is to provide information and clarity in how these changes apply, how they are to be implemented, and what landlords need to be aware of when letting a residential property.
Sherry FitzGerald Lettings has invited Janette Fogarty, assistant director of the Residential Tenancies Board, to present on the night. There will also be a presentation from Linda McCallion, head of Sherry FitzGerald Lettings, Galway. Residential property landlords are invited to attend but must pre-register by emailing [email protected], or by contacting 091 569123. The seminar will be held at 7pm on May 31 in The Connacht Hotel.
