IPOA Welcomes Court Decision on Rent Arrears

Press release May 5, 2009 Economy

The Irish Property Owners Association welcomes court decision on rent arrears, long threatening comes at last.

In a recent court decision, a tenant who owed approximately €60,000 to a landlord has been ordered to pay all arrears completely by October, failing which a custodial sentence may be handed down plus costs.  IPOA are very pleased that the PRTB in one of the first cases of its kind have been successful in having this judgement handed down. 
Thousands and Thousands are being lost by landlords on a daily basis as a result of non payment of arrears of rent and hopefully this will be a start of a new beginning in landlord's quest to recover rent arrears.
