Letters to the Editor

Reading Paul Melia's 'Rent report' on Saturday, I decided to send this letter. I strongly feel that a huge problem in the Dublin rental market is a lack of student accommodation and I would like to bring it to Ireland's attention.

On property website after property website, I scroll down and my eyes light up at another option, only to be disappointed as I move the cursor to click on the advertisement.

'Suits Professionals Only' read the big bold letters that are constantly staring me in the face; either straight up at the beginning of the advertisement knocking you out right away or the sneaky ones that hit you when you're down - you think you've found the perfect house in a good location that fits into your budget, but then the last sentence spoils it all. You're back to the beginning of what is seeming to be an endless cycle.
