The rental crisis in Ireland is at its most severe and not a week passes where room shortages, substandard accommodation and a lack of support hits the headlines. The Indo Daily finds out if there’s any way to resolve the problem. Host: Siobhán Maguire. Guests: Adrian Weckler and Marian Finnegan.
Airbnb, which has come under quite a bit of criticism in recent times for taking homes out of the rental market, now wants the Government to set up a register of approved short-term lets so it can essentially prevent or block non-registered landlords from using its site.
Between this, the ongoing headache for people trying to find any kind of affordable places to rent across the country, a shortage of properties for sale, and a flood of private landlords exiting the market, is there any solution in sight for renters?
