Does planning not apply to the development as a whole rather than each individual apartment? Would the OMC not effectively be making a complaint against itself and be still left in a position where it would need to take action against the apartment owner?To lodge a complaint with the planning authority?
No, a material change of use of an individual apartment would require planning permission.Does planning not apply to the development as a whole rather than each individual apartment?

They might win but the company might not have the funds to pay the legal fees to take the case in the first place. It could just be a practical blocker to this. The letter they have sent so far is free, anymore spend would have to be director approved. Doesn't really address the issue but by default could stop this going any further. Just a thought.
Sarenco is spot on. Any legal fees the result would be initially borne by the local authority, and they would ultimately seek these be paid by the apartment owner.They might win but the company might not have the funds to pay the legal fees to take the case in the first place.
There is a perception that when you buy a property it is yours to do with as you please. This is partially true for a freehold property and totally untrue for a leasehold.At what point do you go "I'm breaking the rules of my lease so instead of trying to wrangle a way out of it I'm just going to stop" or does that attitude just not apply in this country any more.
I prefer to rent short term as there's more income which allows me pay off my mortgage quicker, and also covers the thousands I spent renovating the place over the years. Plus I need to stay there a few times a year for work, couldn't do this if it was rented long term.Just rent the apartment to someone: there’s a housing crisis.
How exactly do I do that? I had what I thought were good tenants in the past.. one night they ripped the fire extinguishers off the walls and started spraying each other with them. Another set of tenants left without paying the final 2 months rent and left the place in a state, including holes punched in doors and a broken window. Like I said previously, in four years of short term rental I never had a minute's trouble and my neighbours never had any reason to complain.Get good, professional tenants.
I know people that had nightmare tenants including friends that rented to a couple that were both members of the gardai. They didn't pay rent for several months and my friend eventually had to go to the tenant's supervisor to recover the lost rent. An example of your "good professional tenants".I’d say in a lot of horror stories the LL’s conduct was partly to blame. That’s if the stories are even true.
