Last night.

Dublin Rental Watch tweeted:

Last week I posted a studio for 3 at 156 Parnell St. for €1,450pm.

Today another studio at this location but each bed is €600pm, 2 singles & a double. Photos suggest non-compliance with minimum standards.

From Fine Gael’s election manifesto on what the party promises for renters…

“Fine Gael introduced the legislation to bring in a 4% annual cap on rent increases within designated Rent Pressure Zones (RPZs).

This legislation is due to expire in 2021.

To protect tenants from rental inflation, we will extend these provisions, if necessary.

In addition to the introduction of RPZs, Fine Gael has significantly improved tenant protections and is moving the Irish rental market towards the rental model found in other European states, with rent certainty and security, and longer leases.

Building on this, we will introduce legislation to provide for tenancies of long-term or indefinite duration, which will provide for much greater stability and security for tenants.

We will continue the Residential Tenancies Board (RTB) change programme, transforming it into an independent and strong regulator for tenants and landlords.

This will build on the powers introduced last year and new rent transparency measures to come later this year.

Encouraging landlords to provide long-term tenancies Fine Gael is committed to a
comprehensive review of the tax treatment of landlords.

This will ensure that smaller landlords, who provide most of the rental stock, are
not unfairly treated compared with larger, institutional landlords.

We will encourage landlords to provide long-term tenancies, offering greater
stability to renters.

We will develop cost rental for our cities and large towns. Fine Gael has
initiated two cost rental projects in Dublin.”

A €1,200pm studio found on the Irish Examiner [website]. A studio to the rear of 32 Church Road [East Wall, Dublin 3]. There is no cooking facilities bar a microwave. This property as photographed would not meet many of the Minimum Standard Requirements.

Paddy’s ‘Studio’ is up for rent again €1,100pm. I can find no record of relevant planning. Photos still suggest non-compliance with minimum standards. I was able to track this address down from [an] earlier advert.

A #TipOff for a ‘one bedroom own door flat’ offered by Colin O’Neill in Templeroan, €1,170pm Mon-Fri. I’ve narrowed down the street. I suspect there’s no window in the bedroom. The kitchen has a microwave while retaining the garage doors.


The property is no longer available.
