Private Rented Accommodation
Private Rented Accommodation reaches record numbers.
According to Independent.ie almost one in seven of the population is now living in the private rented sector. The record is set with almost 700,000 living in leased houses, flats or apartments.
The amount of tenancies registered with PRTB since December 2013 has risen by 52%. The National Economic and Social Council said that one in three renting was unlikely to be able to purchase a home in the near future due to raising house prices and deposit required to secure mortgage.
