The 32-year-old had already reviewed the property, entered into a lease agreement, signed the contract and paid a deposit when he announced to the owner that he was a beneficiary of the PAH. The property was then leased to someone else. "It is important that tenants are aware of this at the same time as the obligation to pay the rent, even if there is a dispute, and, if possible, try to fill the void until the RMC issue is fully addressed," the RTB said. While tenants and landlords regularly present cases to the RTB in the event of a dispute, cases of hap discrimination are not within the jurisdiction of the House. "This DECISION by the RMC is very important because it specifies not only that landlords can refuse potential tenants who are eligible only on this basis, but also that the new reason for equal housing allowances also applies to existing leases," said Eilis Barry, FLAC`s Managing Director. Therefore, if the RMC is looking at employer and worker issues, how can landlords and tenants argue with the Board? This is where tenants who are discriminated against PAH come into play. If a potential tenant or tenant feels discriminated against because of the PAH system, several steps must be taken before a case can be brought before the RMC. In its decision, the WRC Adjudication Officer stated that it was difficult to understand the landlord`s attitude towards what it described as a "model tenant" who always paid rent and complied with the terms of their leases. She outlined the various benefits of payment from the perspective not only of the tenants, but also of the landlord. It stressed that the applicable law must be respected by all parties: "Overall and with ease, the Equality Status Pacts require compliance by all those who may be subject to its provisions, including donors and their representatives, as governed by any other applicable law, including the various provisions of the 1992 Act and all regulations that are adopted under those provisions." If the tenant has not received a response from the lessor within one month or is not satisfied with the response they have received, they can complain here about the complaint form to the WRC. Lord George Magan (74 years old) was not entitled to the discharge against the forfeiture of the House Castletown Cox under the right of owners and tenants, court believes: "You could say: "Look, I saw an ad in the newspaper and I am very interested in this place, I hope to rent it through the PAH system " … You don`t have to be a sitting tenant," Kelly said.
However, the RTB indicated that it could rule on other aspects of a case. These include notices of termination that may have been notified because of rent arrears that may arise from what a tenant considers to be discrimination if the landlord refuses to accept PAH. Since 2004, the RTB has replaced the courts in dealing with most disputes between landlords and tenants with its dispute resolution service. Kelly noted that some tenants may be afraid to take a case to the WRC if they feel they have been discriminated against. "If you`re a tenant sitting down and the landlord says, "I`m going to renovate this place and let all the tenants go," but then you learn that not all the tenants have been laid off, in fact only half the tenants have been rented, even one case has," he said. RMC Judge Ewa Sobanska said she was satisfied that the hap payment "did not accept the distress" of the tenant.
