What does this mean for the future of renting in Ireland?
Personally I have rented my house out for 6 months only as I went travelling and was planning to return and go back to my job in August.
Now this is no longer possible. I am a homeless homeowner.
It is the first time I am renting out.....I never expected to not be able to have my home back. Tenant has been a nightmare since the beginning and is refusing to leave. I do not want to evict illegally but I don't want to be homeless either.
I understand your frustration.
This is where they have been headed for years now.
Covid just gave them the excuse to do it.
This will be permanent soon enough.
And also you will not be able to sell a property with a tenant in it unless the tenant can stay during and after the sale.
I was looking at property investment for a few years now and it is just toxic in Ireland.
People are mad to rent out their property in Ireland, even if they think it will only be short term.
There may be a window between when Covid measures stoip and when they bring in permanent legislation that you can get your house back, but you probably should start the ball rolling and get a solicitor to show you how to prepare to get your house back right after covid.
