Ó Broin introduces Rent Certainty Bill

2 June, 2016 - by Eoin Ó Broin TD


Sinn Féin TD and spokesperson on Housing, Planning and Local Government Eoin Ó Broin yesterday introduced a Bill that provides for rent certainty in the private rental market by linking changes in rent arising from a rent review to the Consumer Price Index.

Deputy Ó Broin said:

“This Bill will provide greater protection to both tenants and landlords from unpredictability in the rental market.

“The half- measures introduced by former Minister Alan Kelly are not working.

“Rents in Dublin are now unaffordable for many and this is adding to the homeless crisis.

“This legislation is needed to stabilise the market and the Bill I introduced yesterday will seek to do this.”
