The Bill amends the Residential Tenancies Act, 2006. Currently, various categories of properties (rental units that were not occupied for any purpose before June 17, 1998; rental units no part of which was previously rented since July 29, 1975; rental units in buildings, mobile home parks and land lease communities no part of which was occupied for residential purposes before November 1, 1991) are exempted from rules governing rent increases. The Bill removes these exemptions.
