I doubt they can legally stop BTL landlords from buying them in the long term.


i'm guess the original BTL owners are getting properties back from the first phase so they want to keep the mix with owner occupiers with these sales


Yeah I'm not saying it's a bad idea, just that it seems unenforceable. They can try and screen people on the first sale but it won't stop anyone who wants one for a btl.

It's a disgrace that they're even being sold - they'll be lucky to get back what they spent on remediation works based on the figures I've seen quoted for this mess in the past. They should be retained as homeless / council accommodation rather than sold for €165k each for standard 2 beds (€199k I think for the bigger 1000sqft 2 beds). If they do ensure that only owner occupiers buy them then at least they'd hopefully be helping FTBs with low budgets, but if they let BTL landlords buy these it's just ridiculous.

Don't talk like that. You'll have Coppinger and Daly down there occupying it for "peeple".

I think there is a way of implementing this condition (No BTL), I remember bidding on an ex-council house years ago and there was a stipulation that it could only be sold to an owner occupier even though the vendor was an owner occupier.

Right, they can ask you if you're an OO. But what happens when you turn around the day after you get the keys and say "change in circumstances, I'm gonna rent it out now"?

I saw the big add in newspaper, I was really supprised at different prices, then I've realised I know that building.. they've changed the outside colors.

There is a lot building going on around that place now. Is that huge mosque is going ahead?

Things really reaching a low point for McFeeley

http://www.independent.ie/irish-news/co ... 72005.html
Quote:
Bankrupt Priory Hall developer Tom McFeely has been arrested and charged with breaching a protection order by putting his wife "in fear".
Mr McFeely (68) was brought to court yesterday accused of a breach at his wife's home in south Dublin...
..A judge deferred a decision on granting legal aid after a garda said Mr McFeely had the keys to a Mercedes car on him when arrested and he was believed to be of "some means"...
...Mr McFeely is charged with one count of breaching a protection order at his wife's home at Prospect Heights, Prospect Manor, Rathfarnham.
It is alleged he breached an order taken out by his wife Nina Kessler by putting her in fear at that address. The protection order was taken out by Ms Kessler on November 24, 2016....
...Judge Smyth granted bail in the accused's own bond of €500 with no cash lodgement required.
The conditions are that he is to stay out of the Rathfarnham area, have no contact directly or indirectly with his wife, comply with the terms of the protection order, surrender his Irish and UK passports, and not apply for any duplicates.
He is also to surrender his UK driving licence and London travel pass, live at his brother's address and notify gardai of any change of address...
...Gda MacEoin said Mr McFeely had €280 and £585 (€692) in cash, as well as two mobile phones, the keys to a Mercedes car and a number of bank cards when he was arrested.

Big change in housing situation for the family...from Ailesbury Rd to Prospect Heights

The Dail Housing Committee is to make recommendations today on how to deal with badly built celtic tiger developments. Eoin O'Broin SF has an article in the IT today
https://www.irishtimes.com/opinion/havi ... -1.3365656
Quote:
There was also a strong feeling in the committee that the State must accept its responsibility for the failures of the past. Priory Hall was only possible in the context of a badly designed and poorly reassured building control regime. A more comprehensive redress scheme for those affected by historic defects must be put in place and our report outlined a number of possible funding options that could underpin such a scheme.

I just heard a bit on the news there. The Committee wants to give redress to all the owners of the apts/houses that were badly built but have not recommended from where the redress will be funded so as "to leave open as many options as is possible"

That's not exactly true.

At the beginning of 2014 regulafions were introduced along with a system known as the Building Control Management System which has required, for many such works, inspections to be undertaken by an "Assingned Certifer" according to a declared "Inspection Plan".

Hunters Wood estate, Ballycullen, Dublin

'Don't step on them' - Apartment owners in Dublin estate told balconies 'unsafe'
Management company sent email warning of 'deterioration'
Tenants told balconies unsafe until 'further notice'
One resident said his foot went through balcony
https://www.independent.ie/irish-news/d ... 89626.html
Quote:
Around Hunterswood, which was built in the early 2000s and is located in the foothills of the Dublin mountains with city views, the damage to the affected balconies is evident.
Many have had their cladding removed to expose the support timbers, which are water stained.
But above them the decking boards on some have rotted through.


Which captain of Industry built this 5hite?

Even with appropriate treatment, Irish wood loses its strength after about 10 years...
