Tenancy Act 2004
The Residential Tenancies Act 2004
^ back to top ^
contains far reaching reforms of the private rented sector.
A large portion of the Act came into operation on 1 September 2004, including: improved security of
tenure through a system of 4-year tenancy cycles; new tenancy termination procedures that involve
longer notice periods linked to length of tenancy; establishment of a statutory Private Residential
Tenancies Board (PRTB); a new system of tenancy registration with the PRTB; voluntary renunciation
of the right to long-occupation equity leases; higher penalties for offences relating to standards
and registration of private rented accommodation; and extension of local authority powers to
address anti-social behaviour.
The remainder of the Act came into force on 6th December 2004. These include provisions for a new
dispute resolution service through the PRTB instead of the Courts, involving mediation or
adjudication and tenancy tribunal hearings. They also include provisions setting out clearly
the statutory tenancy obligations of landlords and tenants and providing that landlords will
not be entitled to seek a rent greater than the market rate and that rent reviews (whether up
or down) may not occur more than once a year unless warranted by a substantial change in the
nature of the accommodation.
Tenancies in existence on 1st September 2004 became 'Part 4 tenancies' on 1st March 2005
unless a valid Notice of Termination was served before that date. Part 4 tenancies can only
be terminated by the landlord on specified grounds (in accordance with the Act) and by either
party by Notice of Termination under the Act in accordance with section 62. Unless terminated,
they last for 4 years from their commencement date or from 1st September 2004, whichever is
later. The notice period required to terminate a tenancy that has lasted between one month
and two years is 42 days. If a fixed term tenancy is due to expire during the existence of a
Part 4 tenancy and the tenant intends to remain in occupation, the tenant must, during the
2nd last or 3rd last month of the fixed term, notify the landlord of that intention to
continue the tenancy.
Tenancies falling within the scope of the Residential Tenancies Act 2004 must be registered
with the Private Residential Tenancies Board
(Click here to visit website
It is the responsibility of the landlord to register the details with the Board. Both the
landlord and the tenants are entitled to a copy of the details entered on the register.
To register a tenancy, a landlord must complete a registration form.
This form is called the PRTB 1, and it is available for download from the PRTB website as an
Adobe Acrobat PDF or as a Word Document.
Landlords should ensure that all questions on the tenancy registration form are completed in
full and that the appropriate fee is submitted, otherwise the form will be returned to them
and cause undue delay in processing their tenancy registration.
Each tenancy registered with the PRTB will be allocated with a unique registration number.
The registration number, along with the details of the registration entry, will be issued to
both the landlord and the tenant.
