Most of your rights and responsibilities are legal requirements of the Residential Tenancies Act 1997.
Your tenancy agreement is one of the documents you signed before you moved in. It is in the information kit that also has information on fire safety, getting along with neighbours and what to do if you are going to be away from your home.
