    Enquiring for a friend (as they say)... A girl I know is renting in an house with a relative in Lucan. Landlord is rarely there but has kept one of the rooms for himself. The rent is low (about 30-40% lower than he would be able to get on the market). The relationship seems good enough but it's all "off the books". What are the (realistic) potential pitfalls for her and indeed for the landlord ? I'm aware of the stories circulating recently about the rent reduction which would lead to the landlord being shopped, but the understanding between them is that she won't do that.

    (If this has been covered elsewhere, let me know. Tx.)
