How are landlords getting away with this??

'Splain it to me.

Help me understand.

This dump property, west of Ireland - couldn't swing a cat in there (literally), baltic, no proper insulation - I wouldn't put my dog in there.

Horrible horrible place.

700 big ones.

This is not Dublin.

This is not some overpopulated metropolis.

This is some backwater town in the most backwater side to a backwater country (or at least it was until the EU started dumping billions into our economy).

It. is. despicable.

To charge that much for this property.

Housing shortage etc, so they can get away with it.

Be that as it may, that laws allow something like this travesty, they need to be addressed.
Because it's beyond unscrupulous.

And yeah - Eoghan Murphy, minister for housing - I'm talking to you!

The dutch policy is rent cap per specific square footage.
Get on it already.
Otherwise some violated renters might feel inclined to go mob-justice on these unconscionable capitalists/exploiters.


PS - are we allowed to link ads here?
I wish to link the add, name and the shame the landlord - and let ya'll see what a travesty this is.

I viewed the property a couple years back when it was going for 480.
Now pickings are thin and they're charging 700.

The photos are taken such as to not convey how small this place is.

See that table crammed against that wall?

That's a reflection of the apartment in its entirety.

Isn’t there another thread where you can link ads to hell holes and the likes.

Edit, linked now. Looks ok to me.

It's a small one bed apartment in Sligo for 680 a month.

What's your problem?
Even someone on full time min wage could afford it

Can’t comment on the insulation but the bathroom and bedroom furniture looks grand.

It does look small but fine for 1 person.

Nothing jumping out at me there. If it’s overpriced then nobody will take it and the LL will have to adjust.

It looks grand.
Poorly insulated houses are often cheaper to rent and expensive to heat, but it shouldn't be too hard to heat a house that size.

I'll agree it's tiny but it does have a lot of new things.

Of course cheap things but a new shower, toilet is a big plus as some of the absolute sheds we had to live in...

It would be ideal for a single person.

On the price point yes for Sligo it's expensive but in Dublin it would be cheap for example.

Pity it's gotten as bad as it is but is it any wonder when workers are fighting to get a roof when those whom don't get one for life....

Half what you pay goes directly to revenue unless the property is owned by a multinational or hedge fund for example.
