Legislative amendments to extend the required termination notice period that tenants must receive (where there has been no breach of tenant obligations) have been passed by both Houses of the Oireachtas. The amendments were made to the Regulation of Providers of Building Works and Miscellaneous Provisions Bill 2022 which will now be sent to the President for early signature.

The proposed termination notice periods to be given by landlords for no-fault evictions (i.e. where there is no breach of tenant obligations) will change as follows: 

Duration of Tenancy         Previous Notice Period          New Notice Period

Less than 6 months                       28 days                                  90 days

Not less than 6 months
but less than one year                   90 days                                 152 days

Not less than one year
but less than 7 years                     120 days                               180 day

Not less than 7 years
but less than 8 years                    196 days                               196 days

Not less than 8 years                     224 days                               224 days
