Climb The Property Ladder

Um.

Last night.

Dublin Rental Watch tweeted:

Last week I posted a studio for 3 at 156 Parnell St. for €1,450pm.

Today another studio at this location but each bed is €600pm, 2 singles & a double. Photos suggest non-compliance with minimum standards.

Meanwhile…

From Fine Gael’s election manifesto on what the party promises for renters…

“Fine Gael introduced the legislation to bring in a 4% annual cap on rent increases within designated Rent Pressure Zones (RPZs).

This legislation is due to expire in 2021.

To protect tenants from rental inflation, we will extend these provisions, if necessary.

In addition to the introduction of RPZs, Fine Gael has significantly improved tenant protections and is moving the Irish rental market towards the rental model found in other European states, with rent certainty and security, and longer leases.

Building on this, we will introduce legislation to provide for tenancies of long-term or indefinite duration, which will provide for much greater stability and security for tenants.

We will continue the Residential Tenancies Board (RTB) change programme, transforming it into an independent and strong regulator for tenants and landlords.

This will build on the powers introduced last year and new rent transparency measures to come later this year.

Encouraging landlords to provide long-term tenancies Fine Gael is committed to a
comprehensive review of the tax treatment of landlords.

This will ensure that smaller landlords, who provide most of the rental stock, are
not unfairly treated compared with larger, institutional landlords.

We will encourage landlords to provide long-term tenancies, offering greater
stability to renters.

We will develop cost rental for our cities and large towns. Fine Gael has
initiated two cost rental projects in Dublin.”

Hmm.

      Yes. It would also lead to a massive increase in homelessness as all the non compliant landlords kick out their tenants.

    An enterprising couple could recoup some of their rent by putting on a “show” for those in the balcony and the stalls.
