Crazy.

Student rent blocks appear to have been excluded from RTB, yet students are facing xx% yearly rent increases. A union is taking a test case.
“Following advice and counsel from public representatives, internal university colleagues and our own counsel we have filed a case through the RTB against Cúirt na Coiribe Galway.
The NUIG Students’ Union will represent a 2017/18 tenant who was a victim of the 18% rent increases. We hope that this will also send a strong message to other management companies of purpose built student accommodation across the country that students and their families will not stand by and allow for their education to be put at risk due to the ever increasing cost of accommodation imposed by these companies.”

Somewhere along the way exhortation and exploitation has become “normalised” in Dublin’s rental market. So often Ireland is at the top of all the wrong charts.

WE ARE SHEEP.

Renovictions - whereby landlords issue notices to quit, in order to refurbish, to lease at a much higher rent

Look on the bright side, government policy is increasing the standard of rental properties.

€9,000 for a four bed in Ranelagh.


#1012

New record for HAP payment about to be set :slight_smile:


#1013

Large enough house. You could probably house up to 4 families in there (2 adults, 2 kids each - one per bedroom) in more comfort than a hotel or B&B, and save significant amounts of money?


#1014

A mere drop in the ocean of taxpayer’s money being transferred by Government to landlords and accommodation providers.

The owner must be annoyed that only 13 photos showed the bottle of Moet.

then rent it out :question:

Cash purchaser chasing yield relative to a bank deposit.


#1019

because you want a house to live in when you return to Ireland but aren’t ready to come back just yet, though have the cash to buy it?


#1020
