The latest report from the Residential Tenancies Board shows 77% of all rent review cases were rejected last year while €1.6 million was awarded to landlords for rent arrears.

The board believes many of the problems are caused by a lack of knowledge on both sides about the do's and don'ts.

RTB Director Rosalind Carroll says they are investing €5 million to go digital, and deal more effectively with a growing demand for support.
