A receiver has been appointed to the Priory Hall Apartment complex in North Dublin.

Dublin City Council recently acquired 27 units in the complex for social and affordable housing.

Dublin North East Labour Councillor Seán Kenny says he is concerned by the fact that there is some unfinished work in the complex.

“I’m asking the receiver to issue a statement saying that he will be assessing the unfinished work with a view to completing it in relation to fire safety issues, in relation to structural safety of the apartments, in relation to the completion of an unfinished road – which is itself a major road, connecting Belmayne to the new Clongriffin DART station” he said.

Declan Taite of FGS has been appointed by Irish Nationwide Building Society as receiver to the development following the apparent collapse of developer Coalport Limited.

The same DCC that issued fire certificates in 2004, started to enforce the same fire certificates in 2009 and is finally bringing the developers of this bankrupt company to court in 2010 ( next month).

Has anyone got any suggestions for dealing with this scenario? The private residents are still living in the development, the council moved their tennants out last Dec because of the Fire Notice. Although work has been carried out to lift the Fire Notice this has now stopped.

Is the receiver now responsible for the remedial works required?
Does the receiver have any obligation to finish the development before selling the Coalport owned units?

Any information welcomed

Max84, I don't know what the answer is, but I think you have two courses of action open to you - talk to a solicitor (as a group of residents), talk to the receiver (also as a group of residents). I suggest you pursue both courses, so the first thing to do is for the private residents to organise themselves.

Thanks, I believe we have a very pro-active residents committee, it is a crazy situation to be forced to live here. Minister John Gormely really needs to properly legislate the Building Industry. These issues along with Pyrite fiasco.... cowboy builders and cowboy politicians!

Coming up on the 6pm rte news

Residents may be ordered to vacate Priory Hall

Updated: 17:18, Wednesday, 12 October 2011

Residents of Dublin's Priory Hall apartment complex have been told that their homes are unsafe because of fire safety concerns.



Residents of the Priory Hall apartment complex in Dublin have been told their homes are unsafe to live in because of fire safety concerns.

Dublin City Council has informed the residents in nearly 200 privately owned apartments that they may have to vacate their properties and go on the housing list.

The council said today that court action "is imminent".

Developer Tom McFeely, director of Coalport Ltd, and his former business partner received fines and suspended prison sentences at Dublin District Court last April for fire safety defects in the complex.

The court heard then that defects had not been remedied despite six separate undertakings by Mr McFeely.

In its letter to residents, the city council said in addition to continuing non-compliance with fire safety regulations "certain matters have come to light", which found "there is a serious risk to the safety of the persons in the event of a fire on the premises".

The council gave ten examples of fire risks, including lack of adequate fire resistance in wall cavities, inadequate alarms and possible problems with gas and electrical installations.

The council, which forced its own tenants to leave two years ago, advised the private occupiers that the Fire Officer considers the building unsafe to occupy.

It warned the residents that the court action may result in an order to vacate the building.

The council says it will provide information on whether the residents will qualify for the housing list.

Residents' representatives and local politicians are due to meet with city council officials today.

There were residents of PH on Liveline today and they were in total shock and very upset. It made for painful listening.

But the REALLY disturbing thing about this for me is not the fear these people have of eviction - as horrible as that is - it's what the fuck happens if the place catches fire tonight. It would appear that, in the opinion of authorities, the complex is not in a position to withstand a fire. So...?

Surely these residents were induced to buy because of a fire certificate issued by Dublin Corporation, so they should countersue for their money back in court if the corpo moves to evict or enforce.

That cunt McFeely should be sent scouring bogs in Monaghan for dead provos, wearing a lifejacket certified as safe by the Dublin Fire Officer. :(

They interviewed some residents on the 9 o clock news on RTE this evening and the first family had a small girl and the wife was pregnant. It sent shivers down my spine.

It's not only the fear of eviction - its that they get evicted and still owe the bank 180k or whatever it is their mortgage on a property that is unihabitable by anyone at any price. Its like a negative equity nightmare muliplied by 500 trillion.

Whatever about the general allergy to debt forgiveness on the Pin, is there anyone that could say they'd object to their taxes being used to ultimately pay off the mortgage debts these people have if all other attempts to get the builder/insurance company/DCC to take responsibility fail?
