You are not talking about a room share. You are creating a self-contained unit. I am not on a rant, I am pointing out what might happen at the RTB if you try any smart alec method of claiming a licence. The RTB can be a very unforgiving place if you get it wrong. One bollocks of a tenant who will lie to beat the band and you will have a nightmare.


Firstly its not smart alac, the person is living under the same roof as the owner, and renting a room they are a licensee simple as that. I certainly would have no worries whatsoever of winning a case if it were ever brought (which it wouldn't be).

Someone with your fear of losing a case could just stick up a smart camera pointed at the door and you can have loads of evidence showing you entering and leaving the "self contained unit" thus proving maintained access and no exclusive use thus its no longer one word against another. Could also but a smart camera in the shared utility again proving shared usage, if you are so paranoid that is.

The person is not renting a room. The o/p is talking about a flat. It is self contained. You may have no fear of losing a case but you have no skin in the game. You have zero experience of RTB cases. You can be as confident as you like. The RTB make the decision, not you. You again think a case wouldn't be brought. You don't have a crystal ball. for €25 someone might well have a go.

Opinion noted, I happen to think differently on the self-contained unit bit, especially with my updated plan I uploaded. But as I said AirBNB looks more attractive to me ATM.

Anyway it could be subject to planning at this stage, and it's just one aspect of the development I plan. Not a crucial one at that


You may need to state that in your planning notices that it will be used for short term let’s aka Airbnb. The council have clamped down on this recently.

They haven’t even clamped down on full apartments being let never mind someone renting a room in their own home who would have a very valid argument that they are not breaking any planning laws. Where is the “lease or sale” when doing rent a room (allowing a guest to stay for a period of time) or Airbnb (allowing a guest to stay for a short period).

When you're already trying to work around regulations, piling on further fiddling with planning exemptions is a Bad Idea.

You make claims as if you have actual experience of the outcomes when I see nothing to indicate you do?

You will be asked why you are seeking planning permission. If you state its for family needs and then rent out the area instead...you get the idea.

Its better to be upfront about things.
