FG & Endapendents vote to dump out tenants and instead protect vulture funds, bondholders and corporate tax dodgers

The Anti-Evictions bill that would have helped to protect rental tenants and make it much more difficult for private landlords to dump residents onto the street increasing homelessness was disgracefully voted down by Fine Gael, the Endapendents and of course in the ultimate act of cynicism by FF abstaining

By a whisker!: After 51-51 tie, Ceann Comhairle votes with government to defeat Anti-Evictions Bill

The bill itself seeks to amend the Residential Tenancies Act 2004 in a number of ways.Among them it would remove the sale of sale of property as a grounds for terminating a tenancy.It would provide for compensation where a tenancy is terminated on the ground that the dwelling is required by the landlord or a relative of the landlord for their own occupation.It would also extend the notice periods for new rents and for the termination of tenancies.

The actions and non-actions of Fianna Fail and their owned bitches Fine Gael in defeating the bill will not be forgotten and will surely energise ordinary decent tax payers to remove them from government in the next election. It really exposes Simon Coveney as being a two faced low life hypocrite whose word can never ever be trusted as regards solving the homeles crisis. But what would any decent ethical person expect of FFG et al? Once again they are exposed as only wanting to enrich the interests of landlords,vulture funds, bondholders and corporate tax dodgers :mad:

I wonder will the Apollo House stunt men and women have any comment to pass on this?

The fact that the vote was tied and only defeated on the casting vote of the CC scared the living bejaysus out of FG. Ruth Coppinger deserves credit for mobilising the level of support this bill received.

It will be interesting to see the explanations from the likes of Zappone and McGrath for opposing the bill and why Halligan missed the vote.

This bit stands out as one probable reason to vote it down.

"Among them it would remove the sale of property as a grounds for terminating a tenancy.

It would provide for compensation where a tenancy is terminated on the ground that the dwelling is required by the landlord or a relative of the landlord for their own occupation."

Well done to the CC for voting this piece of grandstanding by the left. The reasons why this bill was wrong should be obvious to all normal people.

If you believe odious self serving parasites and vulture funds should continue to have carte blanche in dumping paying tenants from properties at a whim are normal? :roll:

It's always the extreme end with you! Most landlords are small scale. You can't have a law which gives tenants more rights and entitlements than owners, that is its flaw.

You'd be well advised to add the bile-filled venerial to your ignore list. It contributes absolutely nothing of value to this forum; never has, never will.

Virtually every other country in Europe gives more protection to tenant's than Ireland it is about time the law was dragged kicking and screaming into the 21st century. I expect the vulture funds will continue to have a field day evicting families under FFG's protection

And I agree with this bit but not this bill, which looks like a heap of unthought-out manure. As I said the issue is not vulture funds.

Think Halligan can be excused, according to Miriam Lord in the IT, he was at his own wedding.

I'm not a landlord, and think that FG have done their best to protect them, but this bit was nuts.

The deposit should go to an independent third party, the eviction notice where landlord is moving in, that is 3 months at present should be altered to 'once the tenants have secured alternative accommodation'.
