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.

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.
why would you buy this for 3.5m, refurb it (doing a nice job)
then rent it out
Cash purchaser chasing yield relative to a bank deposit.
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?
that would make sense
except i know who bought it and they are resident in ireland
