    "Rent increases are not down to lowering of supply."

    So if there's plenty of availability then you can pick and choose?

    "..don't appreciate the needs or perspective of people renting"

    Well there I'd disagree. I'm in business and tenants are my customers, so their needs and perspective are very much part of my business.

    What I really don't appreciate is the epithet 'greedy' being used as a prefix to my business.

    If I were to sell my properties, they would be sold for the best price I could get in the market. No-one would have the least word of censure. I would not be described as a 'greedy' homeowner.

    Landlords will rent properties for the best price they can get on the market. That's good business practice.

    Am correct thinking RPZ will expire in Dublin in December 2019?

    To answer my own question

    From:
    http://rebuildingireland.ie/news/faq-rent-pressure-zones/


    Can the designation as a Rent Pressure Zone be extended beyond three years?
    No. The designation lapses after three years.

    What happens after the designation as a Rent Pressure Zone expires or is lifted?
    Once the area ceases to be designated as a Rent Pressure Zone, the rent review process will revert to normal. However, the minimum period of one year between rent reviews will continue apply.

    It seems sensible to wait until RPZ expires in January 2020 before increasing rent

    Why so?

    Because there is 1 year limit on increases

    And in January 2020 there will be no RPZ to affect the size of the increase

    Assuming it does not get extended again which it probably will.

    Well, 24 December 2019 is obviously over a year away.
