What is the purpose of the Rent Increases (Domestic Premise) Control Act 1978?


To provide tenants with security of tenure and to regulate increases in rent. The Act requires a landlord to show that he has a lawful ground for terminating a tenancy and to prove in a court, if necessary, the 'just cause' for serving a tenant a notice-to-quit.  Further, the Act requires that every rent increase on a tenancy of a premise be first approved by the Rent Commissioner before being charged to a tenant.
