Frequently I hear elected officials criticise previous parties or place blame on failed policies without ever coming up with a solution. If you only have criticism and not solutions, take a seat. We need regulation that works. #RaiseTheRoof #DRIManifesto

What’s Carl Dombrowski offering ‘a female’ near Ossory Ind. Estate? “A place without comfort – just sleeping place with access to nearby toilet – If you don’t mind going to pool, gym for showers”. Sees himself as a slumlord.

Anyone?

Dublin Rental Investigator’s Twitter avatar; a letter sent to 64 Dublin City Council councillors from Dublin Rental Investigator last month (click to enlarge)

On January 14.

Dublin Rental Investigator tweeted a letter they sent to 64 Dublin City Council councillors about their concerns related to Spotahome.

Further to his…

This afternoon the account is tweeting to say they subsequently received responses from five councillors – three of whom, according to Dublin Rental Investigator, raised queries with the council…

And that the office of the chief executive of Dublin City Council has advised that Dublin Rental Investigator’s account should be monitored for reports of substandard accommodation in the Dublin City Council area and that the council should take action when necessary…

The account states that “it’s great they can depend on my work” but it would be more beneficial if they “monitored the platforms that actually advertise property in the first place”.

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?

€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.

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?
