Residential Tenancies Act 2004
Section 134 : supplemental provisions.
135.—(1) For the avoidance of doubt—
(a) a fresh application must be made under section 134 in respect of each new tenancy that is created in respect of a dwelling,
(b) the fact that a tenancy is continued in being as a Part 4 tenancy does not give rise to any requirement under section 134 to apply to register the Part 4 tenancy, and
(c) the coming into being of a further Part 4 tenancy in respect of a dwelling does, however, give rise to a requirement under section 134 to apply to register that further Part 4 tenancy.
(2) The form used for making an application under section 134 shall—
(a) be signed by the landlord of the dwelling concerned or his or her authorised agent and bear the date on which it is so signed, and
(b) be signed by the tenant or each of the tenants, as the case may be, of the dwelling concerned and bear the date or dates on which it is signed by the tenant or tenants.
(3) The Board shall assign a unique number to each application made under section 134 to register a tenancy and that number shall be used by the Board as the reference number for the tenancy when it is registered.
(4) An acknowledgement, in such form as the Board considers appropriate, shall be given to an applicant under section 134 of the receipt by the Board of his or her application and the fee mentioned in subsection (3) of that section.
(5) When an application under section 134 is received by the Board that is incomplete or is not accompanied by the fee mentioned in subsection (3) of that section, the Board shall notify the applicant of the omission concerned and afford him or her a reasonable opportunity to rectify the matter.
