Here are some frequently asked questions by tenants...

When should i pay security deposit and first months rent?

When all tenant information is supplied to Morrison Estates, including ID, employment and previous landlord references, Morrison Estates will process your lettings application. On successful application, payment of the deposit [equal to 1 months rent] will be requested. At the time of signing contracts [usually at check in] the first months rent will be payable, this can be by cash, cheque or bank draft, if this is paid by direct bank transfer we will need confirmation that the money has reached our account, you will then receive a signed receipt when money is handed over. The deposit and rent less outlays are then forwarded by Morrison Estates to the landlord. Note that it is the landlord who is responsible for holding the deposit and returning the deposit at the end of the term.

Who is responsible for changing over utilities after i move in?

Morrison Estates will arrange the transfer of GAS & ESB into your name, however you as the tenant are responsible for any set up and shut down of other utilities such as phone, internet or TV.

When will monthly rent leave my account?

Generally rent is paid by standing order mandate and will leave your account 3 days prior to the rental due date in order for it to be in the landlords account on the rent due date. The typical monthly due date is generally but not always the date you move in.

What happens if something breaks down?

If there is a problem with the property you need to contact Morrison Estates, [or the Landlord directly if the property is not managed by Morrison Estates]. The agency will then arrange for the relevant qualified tradesmen to call to you at a suitable time to arrange repairs.

What should i do at the end of the tenancy?

At the end of the tenancy – typically 1 year, the tenant should contact Morrison Estates approximately 1 month before the end of term to inform them if they wish to stay on for a further term or if they are checking out. We will then arrange a date and time to meet you to check the property and hand back keys.

When is the security deposit refunded?

On the day of check out, once the property has been returned in the condition which it was received, ie professionally cleaned, utility readings for Gas & Esb should be taken, and local authority services such as refuse should be contacted to advise that the tenant is moving, and that all accounts are paid up to that date, and a forwarding address given. When everything is checked and confirmed the landlord is then responsible for returning the deposit promptly, usually within 7 – 10 working days.

What about Tenancy Registration in Ireland?

The PRTB [Private Residential Tenancies Board – www.prtb.ie ] was set up in 2004 to deal with all matters associated with the Residential property market. It is a landlord responsibility to register the tenancy with the PRTB. This should be done within 1 month, or the landlord is liable for late registration fees.

What about BER [Building Energy Rating] certificates?

From January 1st 2009, all properties offered for sale or to let in Ireland must have a BER [Building Energy Rating] certificate. This is a compulsory requirement according to SEI [sustainable Energy Ireland], all info on www.sei.ie/ber
