Rent Pressure Zones are designated geographic areas where rents can only rise by up to 4% annually and by no more than market rent.
A rent review is a process where a landlord or tenant seeks to change the amount of rent being charged to a property.
Rent arrears occurs when a tenant has not paid their rent on time. Overholding is when a tenant does not leave once a tenancy has come to an end.
Landlords and tenants are responsible for paying different expenses during a tenancy. These expenses can be insurance costs and utilities (for example, electricity, gas, water, telephone and internet)
A landlord should maintain their rental properties in a good state of repair, ensuring that the property is safe and healthy to live in. In order to do so they may carry out inspections and access the property to carry out repairs
