Perhaps if renting long-term was safe and productive for LLs, you know equal rights for tenant and landlord and a contract between both, taxation measures, swift evictions under the law, no overholding, no illegal evictions etc. etc. well then LLs would not have opted for the safer choice of ABB in the first place.
That's probably where the problem lies.
small (mainly Irish) LLs have been treated very unfairly, much in the same way small local entrepreneurs/business have been vis a vis large online conglomerates.
if the playing field was even level it would be something, but it's a bit like asking Shamrock Rovers to compete against Man City after giving City a 3-0 headstart.
it's way past time to redress this imbalance.
