5. Is it mandatory to enlist the services of a real estate agent to manage a rental property?

While you are not required to have an agent manage your rental property, it is important to know that private owners are bound by the same legislative requirements that also apply to real estate agents.

This means that if a private owner was found to be in breach of the Residential Tenancies Act, they could be subject to the same disciplinary action – including potential fines – that would apply to real estate agents.
