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.

What conditions are people living in when the selling point is access to the kitchen and bathroom? How close are those beds for €500pm per person? Also, how many flats are there in the one house?

Bedshare for €280pm in Kimmage. That’s €280pm for half a double bed with a stranger. There is also another person in the room. Another has a room for themselves. You also have to pay €20 for bedlinen whether you need it or not.

€1,000pm for this Glasnevin garage conversion where your bedroom is in a mezzanine with so little room you probably cannot stand up in it. It also probably takes a bit of dexterity to get into the room.

Sigh.

Earlier: Tracks Of Our Tears

This morning.

Dublin Rental Investigator spotted the advertisement, above, on Daft.ie.

They tweeted:

Carl from Home Estates offers space in a triple room for approx €500pm plus bills. There are six tenants currently.

The RTB shows only 3-bed flats and under registered at this location. Potential gross rent of €4,482.

Since then.

They’ve tweeted an update, saying:

I emailed Carl and cc’d in Residential Tenancies Board, Dublin City Council Private Rented Accommodation and the PSR and the advert has been immediately removed. #RaiseTheRoof

There you go now.

Last one in gets the short straw, otherwise known as the bottom bunk. Bottom bunk sharing with 3 in the room and 5 in the apartment €480pm. At least your not in the bed on top of the radiator.

Dublin Rental Investigator tweetz:

Dong is looking for a male to share a triple room in a house with 8 people in D1. I suspect these are 3-bed houses. What cooking facilities (Article 7) are there for 9 people?

Dublin Rental Investigator tweetz:

Bree has a ‘cosy” 13 people “shared dormitory style” property on Arran Quay. You can live out of a “Security Locker” for near €500pm, Different prices. No evidence of compliance with Article 7 Regs

Dublin Rental Investigator tweetz:

€590 a month per person to share a “newly constructed studio” two tenants already occupy. €1,770pm for a studio. I cannot see compliance with Article 7 (Portable Kitchen?) Why do I suspect this is some makeshift studio?

The dismal delights on Daft.ie.

From the people behind boastful ‘fact-checking’ news site, The Journal.

Good times.
