The Law

In this section, you will find information about the Residential Tenancies Act, 2006 (the Act). The Act applies to residential rental housing. It gives residential landlords and tenants specific rights and responsibilities.  The Act also gives the Board the task of resolving disputes that occur between landlords and tenants about these rights and responsibilities.

The Board also has Rules of Practice and Interpretation Guidelines that you need to know about if you are filing an application with the Board or have been named as a party in an application.

The Board has also selected a number of decisions that may be of interest to you.  These Selected Decisions provide examples of the types of decisions the Board makes under the Residential Tenancies Act, 2006.
