Landlord registration

ITSSU landlord accommodation registration 2011/2012

IT Sligo Students’ Union guidelines

The Students’ Union has undertaken responsibility for the administration of student accommodation and resulting from this has set down a number of guidelines. All private landlords who wish to advertise their property/properties on campus must register with the Students’ Union. The fee for this registration is as follows; €50 per Self Catering Accommodation (€30 for any additional property), and €30 per Digs accommodation. Once registered, landlords will be placed on the Students’ Union accommodations listings. This list will be available in both hardcopy and electronic form, and will appear on both the IT Sligo Students’ Union website (www.itssu.ie) and the IT Sligo website (www.itsligo.ie).  In addition landlords may request that their accommodation listings are placed on the designated Students’ Union notice-boards, located across campus.

Landlord legislation

As landlords, you are required to meet a number of legislative criteria relating to your property. The Students’ Union will ensure that these criterions are satisfied by all landlords registered, to guarantee that student accommodation is managed consistently and fairly across the board, thus enabling students to find the accommodation that is most suitable for them. The obligations on landlords include the following; landlords must register their tenancy with the PRTB (Private Residential Tenancy Board), landlords must ensure that their property meets certain minimum standards, and landlords must have a BER (Building Energy Rating) rating for their property.

The Students’ Union request to be notified by the landlord once a tenancy has commenced so that the accommodation listings can be updated accordingly. In addition it is requested that all relevant documentation pertaining to the above criterion is sent to the Students’ Union.

Below is a printable version of the registration form and other relevant informative material which may be useful.

We hope to build on the strong working relationship developed between the Students’ Union and accommodation providers in recent years, and ensure that student accommodation is managed successfully and comprehensively for 2011/2012, in a way that satisfies landlords, tenants, and the local and wider community.

If you have any queries regarding accommodation please contact the Students’ Union on: 071-9141887 or email: welfare@itssu.ie
