The tenant protection law known as the 'Tyrrelstown Amendment' is set to come into force next week.

Designed to stop landlords selling 10 or more units at a time and evicting tenants, the new law will mimic protections already in place in many other European countries.

It is hoped the amendment will stop mass evictions being triggered by vulture funds.
