As a response to the Primetime expose on over crowding, Eoghan Murphy has
leapt into action to protect tenants from tenament conditions.

Eoghan has rolled up his sleeves and promised new tighter regulation.

Only problem is it will take 2 years.

I bet landlords are terrified.

In other housing news, Dublin city council have promised to pick up the phone
to complaints about living conditions.

What have they been doing up to now ?

So where do you think Eoghan Murphy will be in two years?

I'm betting he doesn't think he'll still be in the same seat and this is a nice kick to touch until the next guy/gal has to pick up the pieces.

The slumlords, and there are one or two of them on here, must be quaking in their boots.

and the see-saw of oversupply ( ghost estates etc) and undersupply ( immigration, poor town planning ) will continue until FF/FG/Lab are chased out of town on the heels of the Church they used to prop up.

It's a FG master stroke - they believe their one job in government is to re-inflate the bubble and they've done a great job in doing so - 87% property inflation while salaries have gone up 2.6%.

They know there's a limit on the nation's patience with FG's incompetence and rapine policies, so Murphy knows full well that in 2 years FG will be back in opposition, it's benches padded nicely with the eternal gratitude of its many landlord and developer friends.

The two years is a milestone for the "canny" FG cronies to sell up, cash in on the soon to be 100% return on investment by the vulture funds and REITs and wait for the next time.

He actually is one himself supposedly.

Cant wait for the voices in his head to name the slumlords on p.ie :)
LOL

What most people forget is massive majority of Landlords want

Tenant who pays on time
Keeps the place decent
Doesn't do any damage
Keeps in with neighbours
Doesn't inisist on Landlord callout for slight things............... door handle on cupboard
Leave in decent state .............. reasonable wear and tear accepted.

What tenants want

A landlord who allows them live there
No weekly or monthly inspections
Repairs done within reasonable time
No attempt to screw for reasonable wear and tear.

Just on the 'salaries have only gone up 2.6%' claim; have you got a source for that?

The people should move to direct action, the establishment are degenerates. The people should move now.

Eoghan Murphy will be easily found in two years time, just follow that trail of slime that the dirty slug is trailing behind him!

What tenants want is Security of Tenure.

Landlords are now using the lick of paint excuse to evict tenants
to try to increase the rent to new tenants.

Even if it's 3% per annum, property prices are rising by around 15% per annum.
The blueshirt bubble will have us back in 2008 soon enough.
Surely they can do better than aping the FFailures?

But look at the rolled up sleeves in every photo op.

He must be working hard.
