Northern Ireland has not been the beneficiary of many books devoted to its unique laws and legal system. There have been even fewer that discuss the private rented sector and those that have been published are long out of date as the law has developed rapidly. This book aims to fill that gap by looking at the law that touches on private residential letting in Northern Ireland covering the legislation that controls the landlord and tenant relationship as well as the external regulation enforced primarily by District Councils.

Written from an external perspective this book carefully examines the law in Northern Ireland but also contrasts it with similar provisions elsewhere in the UK and with court decisions on those provisions in order to help fill the gaps in the legislation and make clearer what the likely interpretation of the more uncertain provisions would be. It also highlights the gaps that remain and gives thoughts on how those might be filled.
