Ireland Update - Covid-19: Temporary Tenancy Protection

Emergency measures to protect residential tenants from eviction and rent increases during the Covid-19 pandemic were introduced under the Emergency Measures in the Public Interest (Covid – 19) Act 2020. The emergency measures temporarily amend the existing residential tenancies legislation (governed by the Residential Tenancies Act 2004) and will apply to all residential tenants and students in purpose built student accommodation for a period of three months from 30 March 2020.

In this advisory, we outline the new measures set out to protect residential tenants.
