PANEL DISCUSSION: Building a future for Irish renters
Latest figures from property website www.daft.ie show that average rental prices have hit a record high of €1,875 a month in Dublin, while in Cork the rate stands at €1,210 a month and in the rest of the country €883 a month. The rates are up 11%, 9.3%, and 10.1% respectively since March 2017. Ireland’s runaway rental property bubble is “unsustainable’. This panel of industry experts will analyse the complex problems of our rental sector and what government and industry can do to fix them.
