Re: Rental accommodation scheme (RAS)
This is the problem with CERTAIN RAS contracts. The council can put whoever they like into your property and you have to foot the bill if there is any damage. The council may make a contribution (1 months rent) but that is not going cover any significant damage. In saying that, its not in the council's interest to have a string of landlords complaining that the council are placing unruely tenants into RAS accomodation.Lastly, all council tenants are vetted by the council and have garda clearance before being accepted by the council onto the scheme. Therefore you don't vett them hence you have to accept them, you don't have a choice.
Hope this helps.
