(For a friend) My friends ex is going to seek rent allowance,as she can no longer afford the rent without my friends contribution. Situation:she is renting a 3 bed house in Dublin 7 with her daughter,and her sister. The sister is working and paying 1/3 of the rent(approx €530). The ex is working part-time,could afford the rent and has lived there for a year. Now my question.! When you look up the max rent tables,it is €1250 for an adult and qualified child.Is this for her share of the total rent (2/3s of€1600) or is it the total rent of the house?
