So the EA has admitted that they deliberately engaged in “Misleading Advertising” by misrepresented the price that the property is being advertised for sale at, in so far as the vendor has stated no intention to sell at the advertised price. This was not a genuine mistake, but a premeditated act.
If so, that could leave the EA open to action taken against them under the Consumer Protection Act (2007).
I suspect that either of the bodies below would be interested;
Other gaff has had the garage converted, who knows how good thee refurb was though. For a rental, the other gaff is in pretty reasonable condition and you could probably live in it as is.
The OP’s gaff is a complete disgrace. Asking €10k less for a house that definitely needs new windows, new flooring, new kitchen, new fittings, painting, decorating, etc. is just a joke. It’s worth about €260k.
I assume that 120k wasn’t so much a serious price as a suggestion to match the estate agent’s delusions and time wastingly misleading pricing with a little delusion and time wasting of the viewer’s own?
I passed this road this afternoon, swung a left into see the ‘Priced to entice house’ and also the above mentioned house, as I almost booked a viewing to see that one as a rental about 3-4 years ago.
At that time, I recall it was at first viewing down that laneway that put me off before I even bothered proceeding any further to look at the house as a rental.
Today as I did a drive by, I was stuck behind a gang of about 15 young lads who had just come out of the said laneway from the Malahide Rd side, abviously using it as a short cut, and just walked down the middle of the road acting like complete wan*ers refusing to move out of the way to let me pass by in the car…
How much is it worth… ? As a primary residence, not a lot I’d say with that laneway for sure.
IMO… Only worth considering if you thought you might manage to convince Dublin City Council to Extinguish that lanes right of way and get it blocked off.
