Residential Tenancies Act 2004
Section 189 : supplemental provisions.
190.—(1) For the purpose of section 189 there is, by virtue of this section, vested in the Circuit Court, with the modifications specified in subsection (2), the jurisdiction vested in that court with respect to the grant, variation and discharge of interim or interlocutory relief in proceedings brought in that court in respect of any matter.
(2) The modifications mentioned in subsection (1) are that the rules of law (including those of equity) and enactments relating to the foregoing jurisdiction shall be construed and operate so as to enable the Circuit Court to—
(a) provide that any interlocutory relief granted by it, on foot of an application under section 189 , may have effect until the final determination of the dispute concerned under Part 6,
(b) if it considers it appropriate so to provide, authorise an adjudicator or the Tribunal, as the case may be, to include in his or her or its determination under section 97 or 108 in relation to a dispute an award of costs with respect to the application or applications under section 189 in the matter.
(3) Costs the subject of such an award may be taxed in the same manner as costs the subject of an award made by the Circuit Court.
