Every year from Leaving Cert results onwards, DkIT Students’ Union is inundated with students and their families looking for accommodation.
If you have a property or even just a single room which you are seeking to lease, you can register below for the DKITSU Landlord Programme. This will give you access to our purpose-built (and easy-to-use) Accommodation Database and let you reach over 5000 DkIT students, plus next term’s intake of first years!
We will be providing all students with rent books. We strongly encourage you to insist on using them properly throughout the year.
For information on the Rights & Obligations of a Landlord click here.
If you have any additional queries please contact DKITSU.
You can register below for access to the Accommodation Database, this year we have decided sue to the accommodation crisis we have decided to remove the renewal fee.
After a successful payment, you will receive an email within 72 hours with details of how to login and submit Accommodation Listings for display on this website. Be sure you have access to the email address used by your PayPal account.
Please note that ALL Landlord Accounts AND Accommodation Listings will be deleted on 1st April each year (regardless of when created), at which time you must register again and pay for your desired number of listings for the following college term. So it probably doesn’t make much send to pay for listings in February or March.
Wait until April! Unfortunately, we cannot refund payments made in error like this. Refunds will only be given when zero listings are submitted by the landlord.
It has recently come to our attention in the Students’ Union that a number of properties that students rent are not registered with the PRTB.
“Under the Residential Tenancies Act 2004, landlords have to register all tenancies with the Private Residential Tenancies Board (PRTB). The PRTB is an organisation set up by the Government of Ireland. Its main role is to provide a dispute resolution service for landlords and tenants.”
We wish to advise you that failure by the landlord to register the tenancy can result in fines of up to €3,000 and/or up to 6 months in prison, along with a daily fine of €250.
Application Forms to register your property can be found on: http://www.rtb.ie. Here you will also find the relevant information for tenants and landlords, rights and obligations.
