If it brings more rentals it may do some good.

Terrible worry that landlords will leave the market, with rents at an all time high. Thank God the landlords will have an extra few Bob now.

They should use the money funding this to build more houses/apartments instead.

At this stage it should be illegal to be in government and rent out properties at the same time, haha.

The ones enjoying the highest rents in the history of the state?

What would you like to do for them?

And the ones with mortgages have the lowest interest rates, not just in the history of the state but history.

How do you mean, Ireland's mortgage rates are high compared to the eu average.

I guess there is nothing for them because they presumably own st least two properties and to incestivise new investment properties

It is good news for tenants, 300 million for affordable housing, 154 euro top up to HAP tenants, and an incentive to keep the tenant in place when you sell a property.

Not much for landlords which makes the headline saying landlords set for a bonus of millions a bit confusing.

increase in HAP = increase in rents to get above the price so you have an easy out to not take those tenants.

great about the tax breaks for landlords, well overdue but it didn't need to be shored up on the other side with any kind of spending increase. We should be spending less and taxing less.
