The RTB has updated their RPZ Calculator in line with new legislation.
This means rents can no longer increase by 4% per year. They are now linked general inflation (as measured by HICP Index in Ireland). As a reminder, all new tenancies and Rent Reviews in an RPZ (e.g. Dublin) must use the calculator when establishing the new maximum rent permissible.
The RTB Calculator can be found at www.rtb.ie/calculator/rpz
Landlords can no longer ask for more than 1 months rent as a deposit.
