Wylie on Irish Landlord and Tenant Law


This fourth edition comprehensively deals with all aspects of landlord and tenant law, both commercial and residential. It provides essential guidance for all practitioners who advise on this area of law. The book covers everything from the basics (such as explaining the nature of the relationship between landlord and tenant) to more complex matters such as when disputes arise, and the controversial subjects of rent reviews and guarantees.

In this new edition the following is covered in detail for the first time:

Residential Tenancies (Amendment) Act 2015
Planning and Development (Housing) and Residential Tenancies Act 2016
Landlord and Tenant (Ground Rents) (Amendment) Act 2019
Housing (Standards for Rented Houses) Regulations 2017

Circuit Court Rules (Jurisdiction) 2017
District Court (Residential Tenancies) Rules 2018
District Court (Enforcement of Orders) Rules 2020

The fourth edition also analyses recent cases on many aspects of the law, including agreements for leases, notices to quit, application of European Convention on Human Rights, operation of Residential Tenancies Acts, forfeiture, repairing obligations, construction of leases, set-off against rent, new tenancy rights, Keep Open clauses, user covenants and restraint of trade, role and jurisdiction of experts, tenant insolvency and examinership, turnover rents, surrender by operation of law, ejectment proceedings, renunciations, quiet enjoyment and derogation from grant, Circuit Court jurisdiction, acquisition of the freehold and withholding consent to assignment.

Wylie on Irish Landlord and Tenant Law has long been recognised as the definitive work on this area of law.
