Last month, Dublin Rental Investigator – whose Twitter account will be a year old next week – reported the property at 35 Bunting Road in Walkinstown, Dublin 12, to Dublin City Council, Dublin Fire Brigade and the Property Services Regulatory Authority.

The property, which is comprised of nine self-contained units, was being sold by Gillespie Lowe and presented as an “excellent opportunity” .

Advertised on Daft.ie, the company said it offers an income of more than €70,000 a year.

Dublin Rental Investigator pointed out to the council, fire brigade and PSRA that the property has a make-shift structure built behind the property and that they could not find any record of planning permission for a conversion to flats or otherwise.

They also highlighted “a real fire safety concern”.

Dublin Rental Investigator has since tweeted a response from Dublin City Council (above).

They added:

Frustrating news regarding the 35 Bunting Road Property. Dublin City Council states it’s over 7 years old so there’s nothing they can do. The amount of tenants that lived in those conditions.

I urge anyone who sees someone renting a structure that doesn’t have planning permission to report it as a matter of urgency as once the structure is in place for 7 years Dublin City Council are barred from taking action.

Do you want to share a ‘twin cot’ for €370pm. This looks like a bed-share. Only available for 4 months which prevents tenancy rights. It’s a two bed apartment with 5+ tenants.

The rent for this studio on the NCR has jumped by 20% (€156) in the space of a day. Though whatever algorithm Daft use states it’s jumped 13% (€104). Further to that why do online platforms allow adverts without any photos or address?

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


Seven tenants.

Three chairs.
