Hi JMNK,
I've just paid the booking fee and now I'm extremely worried about the delay to provide documents and to get mortgage approval. Besides, the lastest article on the Irish Times shows that around 40% of the units will be for social housing.
PS. I'm expecting so over preoccupied with neighbors and delay to move in.
Could you share your experience living at New Priory Hall?

We have been living in opposite blocks since 2017. All is good. But yes social housing is ordered by city council. Of our 7 blocks, all block 7 is social housing. For new blocks we understand 3 are for social housing as voted in by Co Co in years previous for a30% figure. Hooke Mcdonald should have given those stats on the viewings of weekends previous. That'sthe approach forDublin in 2019 . There is a new active management ctte here with monthly meetings as per MUD Act. At a recent AGM is the management fees per annum which we try to input on. If an active owner network going ford should be fine. And we will welcome you at next AGM in Nov. The paperwork you ask of was very very slow to even stop. Hope it's different this time. It's a great development and so close to Dart and park.

new Priory Hall

Anyone buying an apartment in New priory hall? Build quality, Price, Location looks perfect but there was an article which got published about social housing. About 39 houses out of 105 are being offered for social housing ( that is almost 37%). Will there be any problem with these many social housing? In dilemma whether to proceed or not.

Pretty much all new developments now will have ~30% social housing, so the only way to avoid it is to buy a second hand house in a development full of owner occupiers.

Hi Awec, I am thinking the norm for social housing is just 10%?

Yea you're right, I had a brain fart.

There were calls to increase it to something like 30% but that never happened.

In my experience, councils can be very slow to pay management fees and are often in arrears. This constrains the ability of the OMC to fund necessary repairs and upkeep.

That’s the official allocation to the council as part of the Part V agreement. It doesn’t stop other housing bodies buying a couple and doesn’t stop investors buying and then renting to tenants in receipt of social payments.

Yeah that is the main concern.

Knowing you're paying they market rate, while your next door neighbour has a free gaf isn't annoying at all.

On the plus side they're at home all day so free security.

Flipside of this is they like to stay up late.
