Explanatory Memorandum to Private Tenancies (Northern Ireland) Order 2006

Options Considered

6.The options which were considered were:

  • To retain the existing system of rent control;

  • To adopt a system similar to the Republic of Ireland where the tenancy term is determined by law and where all private tenancies must be registered with the local council and are subject to the jurisdiction of a statutory body for the resolution of disputes;

  • To create a unique system drawing on elements of best practice from elsewhere which would target unfitness while relaxing rent control.
