In January, Sinn Féin introduced the Property Services (Advertisement of Unfit Lettings) (Amendment) Bill 2019. It aimed to stop poor quality accommodation – including overcrowded properties – from being advertised online.

We’ll be seeing crying chair-type ads from Daft.ie for some time to come as FF gang up with FG to cynically delay legislation to force Daft to vet ads for legality.

The Shinners tried to introduce their Property Services (Advertisement of Unfit Lettings) (Amendment) Bill 2019. It makes total sense and this was accepted by all, FG and FF included.

But, while FG and FF voted to approve the progress of the Bill, they both voted to delay any further consideration of the Bill for six months.

Meantime, looks like we might have to continue moral suasion on the Fallon brothers, Eamonn and Brian.

Maybe have a polite word with them if you come across them, I’m sure they’re decent people and would be aghast if they knew what sort of ads they’re hosting, and even the €8m dividends wouldn’t merit such despicable standards.

Are DAFT facilitating landlords hiding the location of properties? New regulations governing the advertising of rental property must include a provision for the inclusion of the Eircode. What’s to gain from hiding “Newly Refurbished/BER Exempt’ property locations? #RaiseTheRoof

Anyone?

Families are homeless now because 4-bedroom properties like this one (above) at 2 St Vincent St, Dublin 8 is crammed with bunk beds for 8+ foreign language students at €400pm each. #HAP for family of 5 = €1,560pm approx, students pay excess of €3,260pm.

There is no evidence of the property being registered with the RTB [Residential Tenancies Board] for the existing tenants. It’s unclear if the landlord has set up the property as a HMO. For accountability, proof of owner must be part of the advertising process…

Further to results from Daft.ie that showing rents now risen ‘by 70% on average – 87% in Dublin, 68% in the other cities and 53% elsewhere – from their lowest point’ a decade ago.

In Dublin rents are 30% higher than their Celtic Tiger peak.

The Social Democrats have called for an an emergency rent freeze across the country.

Soc Dem co-leader Catherine Murphy said:

“It’s not good enough that the government continues to throw struggling renters upon the mercy of a market where there is an acute lack of supply and where the going rates for rental properties are totally out of whack with many people’s incomes.

“In our Alternative Budget 2019, the Social Democrats proposed a two-year emergency rent freeze across the country. It is abundantly clear that rent pressure zones are failing to curb soaring rents. We need a stronger solution to the current crisis.

The only option now is for the government to bring in an emergency rent freeze that will at least give renters some certainty about their weekly or monthly outgoings.”
