Landlord Information


Landlords will need to ensure that all property building insurance is paid up-to-date and to inform your insurance company that the premises will be leased.


Peter Jordan Estate Agents recommends that your property be offered for a six or twelve month lease basis depending on specific requirements. The Tenant is not obliged to enter a new lease after the original lease expires. In this situation, the Tenant continues occupation on a periodical basis (also known as ‘month-to-month’) at the same rental fee or an increased rental fee under the same rental terms or until the Agreement is ended in accordance with the Residential Tenancies Act. The majority of Tenants, however, prefer to sign a new lease to obtain security of tenure.


Every property managed by Peter Jordan Estate Agents is:

  • Internally inspected at least every 6 months, however when a new Tenant occupies a property, the first inspection is within the first 3 months.
  • Provided with a report (which includes photos) on the general condition of the property and whether the property is being maintained in the manner as provided in the Tenancy Agreement.

Inspections are an important part of our property management service and have dedicated Property Managers for your property. Detailed inspection reports are provided to our landlords and maintenance requirements highlighted as soon as possible.

Rental Payments

Whilst considerable care is taken in selecting a tenant, occasionally tenants fall into arrears of rent payment. Our team has clear policies in place to ensure rental arrears are kept to a minimum. Peter Jordan Estate Agents has an excellent record for arrears management which is largely contributed to our management systems and relationship with our tenants.

Termination Notice

A Termination Notice may be issued for several reasons and the number of days written notice required also varies. It is important that the correct notice is issued in accordance with the Residential Tenancy Act. Failure to fully understand the Act in regards to Termination Notices may result in failure of proceedings before the Residential Tenancies Tribunal.

Residential Tenancies Tribunal

The basic function of the Tribunal is to arbitrate any disputes between Tenants and Landlords/Agents. To obtain a result from the Tribunal in favour of the applicant requires not only a thorough working knowledge of the Act, but also extensive experience in the operation of the Tribunal. Peter Jordan Estate Agents can manage these requirements on your behalf.
