The Union of Students in Ireland (USI) and the Residential Tenancies Board (RTB) launched the revised Finance and Accommodation Guide 2016 in Maynooth Students’ Union on Tuesday the 30th August in preparation for students coming to college.
You can access the Guide by clicking on its cover below.
The guide details the rights and obligations students have while renting in accommodation and includes tips and advice for students who may be renting for the first time. It also informs students on the new tenancies regulations set by the Residential Tenancy Act 2015.
The guide has a rent book and inventory checklist included, so students can record any damages or missing utensils at the start of the lease, and not be penalised unfairly on their deposit. The guide also provides information on finance and gives budgeting tips for students to financially manage the college year.
