Residential Tenancies and Valuation Act 2020
Last updated at 17:50 on 12/08/2020
As a result of the Residential Tenancies and Valuation Act 2020 from Sunday, 2nd August 2020, the Valuation Acts are to be cited as Valuation Acts 2001 to 2020.
The Residential Tenancies and Valuation Act 2020 was signed into law by President Michael D. Higgins on Sunday 2nd August 2020. The Act extends the period within which the valuation list in relation to the rating authority area of Dun Laoghaire Rathdown County Council shall be published.
Section 14 of that Act brings about a change to the application of section 25 of the Valuation Act 2001, which arises from the decision to defer the completion of the Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown revaluation to 2021, as follows:
“Application of section 25 of Valuation Act 2001
14. (1) Section 25 of the Act of 2001 shall, during the period commencing on the date of the passing of this Act and ending on 31 December 2022, apply in relation to the rating authority area of Dun Laoghaire Rathdown County Council as if, in subsection (2), the reference to 10 years were a reference to 12 years.
(2) In this section— “Act of 2001” means the Valuation Act 2001; “rating authority area” has the meaning assigned to it by the Act of 2001”.
Section 1(3) also results in a new collective citation for the Valuation Acts, as follows:
“(3) The Valuation Acts 2001 to 2019 and section 14 may be cited together as the Valuation Acts 2001 to 2020”.
