I write to highlight my predicament in relation to the Non Principal Private Residence charge.
With all of the publicity surrounding the €100 household charge, I feel this charge has been overlooked.
I am a qualified solicitor who was made unemployed in 2009. I went to Australia to further my career in law, but having been unable to find work there, I came home in early 2011. Again, unable to find work on my return, I was forced to move back into my family home and rent the house I had bought as I could not afford the mortgage.
