Dublin Rental Investigator tweetz:

This studio opposite Fibbers advertised on @facebook for 4 people at €375pm each. 2 obviously have to bedshare. The kitchen doesn’t meet Min Standards. Difficult to verify. Why is property being advertised on @facebook

When will it ever end?

Meanwhile…

€285pm room share of ‘office conversion’ with 3. Bunk beds blocking window. Kitchen consists of toaster/kettle/blender, etc on a desk. Looking at multiple breaches, specifically A.7 Housing Regs, perhaps planning (change of use) breaches too.

Shook! €1,900pm for a ‘studio’ in East Wall. The photos contradict the bed arrangements. Potential breaches in A.7. Housing Regs. Is there planning permission? There’s actual houses for this price in the D3 area.

Dublin Rental Investigator tweetz:

Rajesh has a 2-bed apartment with ‘7 vacancies’ and 1 current tenant, yet photos show 2 beds and a sofa. Bedshare? Charging in excess of €3,700 per month, €45k per year. Over 50% going rate for 2-bed in Custom House Square.

“This Rathgar flat has one bedroom with an internal window, suggesting it was a bedsit. For €475pm you get space on the bunkbed.”

It’s €550pm for a single bed in someone’s living room Mon-Fri only, that’s 4 nights. You must provide ‘access’ for the other residents. It’s also a licensee agreement meaning zero rights. No alcohol allowed.

Female vacancy for €390pm in a bunkbed room share with 3 in the Steelworks D1. There is 8+ people sharing this apartment with one bathroom.

Dublin Rental Investigator tweetz:

Suzanne Costello is advertising ‘shared foreign student accommodation’! 55 North Strand is registered with the RTB as having 6 bedrooms but Suzanne has 4 beds in the two rooms pictured.

Suzanne states there’s 9 current tenants. Who is investigating how many tenants Suzanne has or if there even is 6 bedrooms?

About renters being asked to share beds with strangers for up to €550 per month

Dublin Rental Investigator, who has been examining rental property ads and highlighting properties that don’t meet minimum stands since June 2018, has tweeted:

I was messaged and asked to provide a comment and my work to journalists who had used this account as a resource for their article. As requested I emailed adverts, now long expired, from my database. They chose not to use my comment. Here it is in full.

Renters asked for €550 per month to share a bed (Catherine Sanz, Aaron Rogan, The Times Ireland edition)

These short-lets put people in precarious situations, the person taking the lease and the person expecting to return, not to mention the people already living in the room. Spotted on Facebook by @GazzaONuallain. Thanks for your support.

Sigh.
