    Tenant may have moved out without letting me know

    I don't disagree but the reality is, they'll just stop paying 3 months earlier. Without a 3rd party bond system deposits are of limited use. Gives you 3 months notice I guess, when the rent stops.

    The anti-landlord legislation chickens are coming home to roost

    True. Maybe they want to sell to buy back in later with a property that is more profitable to rent. or invest in a REIT.

    The anti-landlord legislation chickens are coming home to roost

    It was mentioned that, selling up to increase rents wasn't a significant factor. I would say its because of increased risk due to the legislation, and fear of more changes. The property has peaked. They probably want to sell up, clear some mortagage's and invest differently.

    The anti-landlord legislation chickens are coming home to roost

    I think he mean a general move out of rural areas to the cities, especially Dublin. Its concentrating all the demand in the one spot.

    Ross Maguire: "Bank bashing has gone too far in Ireland"

    Ask a vague question get a vague answer. Banks constantly make odd business decisions. They often choose to make life very hard for their customers which seems to give the bank a less than optimum return. Even encouraging customers to switch banks to get a better deal.

    1k a week for nursing home sounds low. I would be expecting more like 1400-2000

    Is a lender entitled to charge a customer who asks for 20 years of statements?

    We had ATM long before that I would expect all these records are in a computer somewhere. At the worst a back up tape somewhere. They should be able to provide an export of the file for a fee.

    New legislation to limit landlords' rights

    At least (as far as I know) they aren't backdating it. So if you have your notices in already, they'll still stand.

    Why there is so little house building in Ireland

    The issue is supply and increasing demand. With shortage of supply, increasing demand rises prices. Landlords, rents, leases, length of tenure have nothing to do with that. Supply comes first everything else follows. You don't seem to remember when we had cheap rents and abundance of supply...

    https://m.independent.ie/irish-news/revealed-state-spends-1-2bn-on-housing-even-though-building-is-cheaper-38125430.html The only conclusion is that it's unofficial policy for the govt to increase demand. They aren't trying to solve the housing crisis. They have a patsy in small landlords that...

    Minister Murphy actively pushing landlords out of the market in the face of the latest Daft report

    So the idea that you can force landlords to maintain social or affordable housing is flawed. They'll just move to something more profitable. Unless of course the provision is tied to this none profitable housing and profits are controlled. Which is a bit like what they were doing in Austria...
